"The are next to the River Ganges, holy to them, where they will use the dung as a Holy Soap and accept the blessings of Lord Krishna."

That is hilarious. Using poop for soap to wash off poop that was sprinkled on you in a river full of poop and dead people and animals. Why you so silly India?

"India is such a filthy place full of filthy customer support agents. I think the only natural resources are slurpee crops and slim-jim caves."

Thanks for the explanation, StarDagger. ;)

Also, to add some more culture...Mexico did not invent pinatas. They were brought here by Spanish missioners. Marco Polo took the pinata to Italy around the 12th century from China. The chinese made a bovine figure and covered it with coloured papers, then filled it with seeds. It was broken by beating it, during the spring celebrations.
When the missionaries brought it to Mexico, it was used to attract people to religious festivals in order to facilitate conversion. Later on, the missionaries created an elaborate story around it (Mexican pinatas are traditionally a 7 pointed star. Each point supposedly represents each of the capital sins, and by breaking it you vanish sin and bring all the blessings of God. Or you jut get hit in the head with an orange lol.)

"This is the festival of Mahajalawral.
The dried out pieces of bull dung are sprinkled on the people to show how much Brahma, the Bull of Heaven, cares for the People.
The are next to the River Ganges, holy to them, where they will use the dung as a Holy Soap and accept the blessings of Lord Krishna."

To answer some questions that have been posted:
-The people are not looking at him because they reject pride, looking for the grace of Brahma during this ritual, or in general, in life is against the point of this ritual.
-The smell is contained because the manure is dessicated, and when they are in the River they have water all around them
-The guy spreading the manure is called the Vajna-yana, and this ritual is traced back loosely to the Upanishads, specifically the Brihadaranyaka. If the crowd grows large enough they will get up to 19 of them to sprinkle the manure.
