  • Description

    Full titles read: "The Juggernaut - From all over the Indian Continent come pilgrims to take part in Hindu's ancient sacred rite."

    Puri, India.

    M/Ss show huge crowds of people gathered around some temples with balconies; the people wave decorated banners or fans; it seems to be raining as most carry umbrellas. High angle L/S shows two elephants walking through the middle of the crowd. L/S shows a huge ornate shrine on a float moving towards us through the throngs - this must be the Juggernaut; a closer shot shows the float being pulled along by men.

    Intertitle reads: "Guards now prevent frenzied fanatics from throwing themselves under its wheels."
    M/Ss of the Juggernaut being guided through the crowds.
