the balacing act !

Tightrope walking, balancing with feet in bicycle rim, Ranchi, Jan 2012

there is the skill and artistry but make no mistake, the sole goal is to be the breadwinner for the family. There is no safety net and a slight mistake would most likely result in a life time disability.

    • you would me more surprised at what the girl makes for all this dare devilry ! She wasn’t either sad or happy or excited, but rather went about it matter of factly as if doing this as a daily chore

    • These acts are actually becoming quite common now especially in touristy areas. I even saw this in Jaisalmer. Small girls and boys are usually the performers and they are the bread winners for theirs families.
