Worshiping Gods and Demons

Hindus in India's northern Himachal Pradesh worship mythological demons along with gods in a unique festival.

"Kotlu", as the seven-day festival is called, is celebrated every year to mark a compromise between gods and demons.

The legend is conveyed in the form of an act presented by men dressed as demons and gods. The Demons are covered with green leaves and wear ugly masks, after which ordinary people are not allowed to either touch them or talk to them.
