This picture was taken at Poush Mela 2014.This old man was busy with this bubble maker probably bought for some younger member of his family, or may be he rediscovered his lost childhood.
Poush Mela (Bengali: পৌষ মেলা) is an annual fair and festival that takes place in Santiniketan, in Birbhum District in the Indian state of West Bengal, marking the harvest season. Commencing on the 7th day of the month of Poush, the fair officially lasts for three days, although vendors may stay up until the month-end. The key characteristic of this fair include live performances of Bengali folk music, notably baul music.
Devendranath Tagore(Father of great Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore) with twenty followers accepted the Brahmo creed from Ram Chandra Vidyabagish on 21 December 1843 (7 Poush 1250 according to the Bengali calendar). This was the basis of Poush Utsav (the Festival of Poush) at Santiniketan(Courtesy Wikipedia)
