Indian monsoon can be fun !


In july at monsoon time, when river Ganga flood the ghat of the little town of Mirzapur, kids jump from the roof of he temple. As soon as they reach the water, they have to swim with all their energy not to be taken away by the strong current. And of course, they love if someone is there to record their "tour de force"…
A way to have fun that cost nothing, developp strenght and solidarity. No accident recorded up to now.

Mirzapur is located 60 km from Benares in North India, Uttar Pradesh.

These trained squirrels, each of which weighed just over 700 grams, were released on the borders of the country for intelligence and espionage purposes.’ According the story the squirrels had ‘GPS devices, bugging instruments and advanced cameras’ in their bodies. ‘Given the fast speed and the special physical features of these animals, they provide special capabilities for spying operations.
