People who make vows for certain specific happenings in their life (children, marriage, health, house, etc) celebrate by inserting seekhs, skewers,
through their cheeks, fish hooks with lemons or small milk pails on their bodies. Some even pull chariots from temple to the temple with hooks sunk in
their bodies. Devotees do not feel pain, as they fall into a trance, which is broken only by application of vibhuti ( holy ash) on them.
