This image was taken at Mela Chiraghan (Festival of Lights) in Lahore, Pakistan by using my Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II. Mela Chiraghan ("Festival of Lights") is a three-day annual festival to mark the urs (death anniversary) of the Punjabi poet and Sufi saint Shah Hussain (1538-1599) who lived in Lahore in the 16th century. Apart from the gathering at the festival, you would also see several Malangs (mendicants) dressed up in exceptional and multicolored attires who sit quietly in a corner of the shrine. These Malangs start coming to the shrine almost a week before the urs and start putting up their small tents around the place and by the time the urs and festival is started there is no place found and it is the most congested area. Well, it is the belief and faith of the people who come there with a hope that their wishes would be fulfilled.
