There are somethings that make us diffrent from others and give us our identity ,Then we find people with similar notes and it becomes music. Most of it is dedicated to Himachal , The Himalyas, Rock Music and other things that matter.

The story of a practice that involves human sacrifise to please the gods or to get a higher position in the society.

In Bachoonch village in the Spail valley, Bhunda mahayajna was performed last December to an audience of around 70,000 people. The village is 9 km from Rohru town,this death-defying human rope trick held there to please the local deities was performed after a gap of 70 years. Apparently it was last performed in 1996 in Pujarli village in Rohru tehsil after a gap of 30 years, but i think they may have used a goat rather than a human.

The link contains two videos from the three day celebration and a detailed description about the ritual and its origin.
