RELIGIOUS SIDESHOW

1966 New Delhi India Mela Festival Sideshow

 

As at carnivals in the Western World, a sideshow is always found among the merchandise stalls and "rides" set up near the Hindu temple at mela's (festival) in India.  The sideshow attractions include a cobra charmer, a fortune teller, a palm reader, a phrenologist, sometimes even a two-or-three-actor drama.  The sideshow seen here, at a recent religious festival in New Delhi, even has an "electric girl" whose act is a demonstration of immunity to electric show.
