Sikh warrior Major Singh, wearing a 425-meter long turban, brandishes a sword as he participates in a religious procession during the annual fair of Hola Mohalla in the northern Indian state of Punjab. Believers from various parts of northern India collect at the religious fair to celebrate the festival of Holi in a tradition set by the 10th Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh, in the 17th century. Nihangs, or Sikh warriors, display their martial skills and attire during the fair, believed to be maintained in the exact tradition as set by the guru.
