Devotees observe Charak Puja, a festival celebrating Hindu god Shiva, on Chaitra Sangkranti (last day of the Bangla year, April 13) in a village under Banshkhali Upazila of Chattogram. As part of the ritual, a man is suspended from a Charak tree and revolves around the tree mid-air seven times. A village fair is also held annually surrounding the festival. Photo: RAJIB RAIHAN
