A naked Jain ascetic prostrates at the feet of the 58.8-feet tall monolithic statue of Gomateshwara in Shravanabelagola, 99 miles (158 kilometres) west of Bangalore, India. The sleepy town of Shravanabelagola is preparing itself with better infrastructure to celebrate the Mahamastakabhisheka or head anointing ceremony of the 1,100-year-old statue of the Jain sage Gomateshwara (Lord Bahubali) scheduled to be held next year. Mahamastakabhisheka a tradition held every 12 years since its inception in AD 981 is a grand festival where the statue is bathed with vermillion, saffron, milk, sandalwood paste, ghee, precious stones, and gold coins. #Shravanabelagola #India #Karnataka #Bangalore #Bengaluru #religion #Jain #Mahamastakabhisheka #Gomateshwara #statue #travel #festival #everydayindia #everydayeverywhere #photojournalism

An artiste dressed as a female mythical character is reflected in mirrors as he wears a saree backstage in a theatre during a cultural festival in Bangalore, India. Men essaying female roles in theatre in India stretches back millennia and cross dressing and drag is not frowned upon in an environment where homosexuality has been criminalised by recent legislations. #Bangalore #India #Karnataka #artiste #Hindu #reflection #CrossDress #WHP🌈 #everydayindia #everydayeverywhere #photojournalism #MythologicalBangalore #WorkingAtTR

Last week we joyously woke to the whimpers of four barely visible pups. Unfortunately the joy was short lived and the whimpers drifted into the heavens. Undoubtedly the brief memories will remain fondly etched for eternity. #India #Bangalore #Karnataka #dog #Dachshund #DogsOfInstagram #DachshundsOfInstagram #RIP #FadingPuppySyndrome #LifeOfAPhotojournalist #WorkingAtTR
