Citizens from Bangladesh gather on the Ichhamati river that marks the boundary between Bangladesh and India on 6th October 2011 the last day of Durga Puja. Both Indian Border Security Force and Bangladesh Rifles relax patrolling and control on the border on this day, when the river is crammed with boats of all shapes and sizes as thousands gather to accompanying revelry and take advantage of the blurring of borders. The boats themselves are a sight to watch as the boatmen skilfully maneouvre them through a situation where the boats totally hide the surface of the river.

Location: Taki, Wst Bengal, India.
