Photographer's Note

First, make an wild guess about this hi-tech gadget. After an obvious failure, please read the note to find out what this is.
This is an instrument prepared by one of the hundreds of Sadhus gather at the temporary tents set up at Kolkata for the forthcoming Gangasagar fair. This gigantic 'Kolke' is used for smoking 'Ganja' or Cannabis.

About Gangasagar pilgrimage:

Gangasagar pilgrimage and fair is the second largest congregation of mankind after the holy Kumbha Mela. The latter is observed once in four years at alternate locations in north, central and central-west parts of the country, Gangasagar fair and pilgrimage is held annually on the Sagar Island’s southern tip in the Ganges delta atop the Bay of Bengal. That makes Gangasagar all the more distinctive.
