In this print captured by Prakash Mathema from Agence France-Presse (AFP), we are transported to the vibrant streets of Bhaktapur, Nepal during the Bisket Jatra festival. The image showcases a mesmerizing scene where residents eagerly watch devotees pulling a magnificent wooden chariot through the bustling crowd. As the Nepali New Year unfolds on April 13,2021, this nine-day celebration becomes an enchanting spectacle for both locals and visitors alike. The festival holds special significance for the ethnic Newar community in Bhaktapur, located just 12 kilometers east of Kathmandu. The photograph perfectly encapsulates the energy and devotion that permeate throughout this religious event. With colorful traditional attire adorning participants and spectators alike, it is evident that every detail has been meticulously crafted to honor their cultural heritage. The wooden chariot itself stands as a symbol of reverence and tradition, drawing attention from all corners of the city. As it glides through narrow streets adorned with ancient architecture, it serves as a reminder of Nepal's rich history and spiritual roots. Prakash Mathema's skillful composition captures not only the physical beauty but also conveys a sense of unity among those gathered to witness this sacred procession. It reminds us that festivals like Bisket Jatra serve as powerful reminders of our shared humanity and collective celebrations across cultures around the world.
