The men were part of a procession organised to celebrate the snake festival called Nag Panchami in Samastipur in Bihar in eastern India. The auspicious day falls in the month of July or August every year and is celebrated by hundreds of thousands of people across the country. Visuals show bare-chest men, mostly snake charmers walking in tandem, displaying their prized possessions that they had specially hunt two weeks before to mark the festival. Once they reached the local temple, they queued in to receive blessings from metres-long and potentially deadly snakes as priests chanted hymns.
