The Street Circus

The winter season in Kolkata is the season for merriment. Lots of picnic, sports and other events are arranged. People go out in the afternoon sun to enjoy its warmth.

This is the time when street-performers come out in the street to show there feats. Mostly the gypsies or the poor people from nearby Kolkata flock at the different corners of the central Kolkata to perform rope walking, fire eating and many other juggling games.

In the photo above I have captured one little gypsy girl performing rope walking with pitchers on her head at New Market area, while in the second photo, at the same area, a Japanese tourist is performing fire dance with two fire balls.
