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.
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.
