Eight-year old Satish, dressed as Indian independence icon Mahatma Gandhi, begs for alms as Hindu devotees carrying a sacrificial goat walk past during the Peddagattu Jathara festival at Lingamanthula Swamy Temple at Durajpalli in Nalgonda district, some 140 kilometers east of Hyderabad, on Feb. 21. The festival, where devotees worship Hindu god Lord Shiva, is celebrated every two years and has been celebrated for the past 400 years.
