Baby Shiva

This is a nice picture of a young child dressed up as Shiva. Depending on the prevailing festival, such kids dress up as Shiva, Krishna and the big favourite, monkey Hanuman, who generally comes equipped with the requisite and truly magnificent tail.

The groups travel from house to house serenading until somebody comes out and gives them a donation. In what is often a battle of will on the kids' part and patience on the home-owners, the kids generally win out and successfuly collect generous contributions!
