The first “picture of the week” is a photo of a young girl performing “walking on the rope” trick in the city of Leh in Ladakh. I think the performance requires a lot of skill. You can see that she has a set of pots (I can see four) on her head and she is able to walk on the rope effortlessly with the assistance of the stick for balancing. There is a plate under the rope for spectators to leave money for her performance.
Picture of the week – walking on the rope street performance
Street performances like these are common sights in India. You will also find snake charmers performing snake tricks while playing a musical instrument called the “pungi or bin (been)”. The most hilarious I have seen till date is the monkey trick where a man would make a monkey perform amusing tricks.
