This photograph was taken in a village near Canning ( South 24 Pargana's , West bengal ) , on 16th July 2014 during the monsoon season. In this image a man is biting the cows tail to make then run more faster to win this race. Every year at the onset of the monsoon the villages near Canning have number of Cattle races at their paddy fields, and most of the farmers take active part this is one of the major festive event before they start their major farming work which is usually tiring and a lot of hard work .... most of them enjoy this event where the bulls race for the glory of their owner ... seen in this photograph- the owners and their bulls had to cross a long trench filled with water before they could reach the fields where the race would take place.
