I'm Not Sure What to Think About This

A ritual in India involving dropping kids off a tower. Looks like the kids don't mind -- kinda like a long drop onto a trampoline. I suppose every religion has its odd rituals. As a parent, not sure how I feel.

It is interesting to note, however, that the crowd seems to made up entirely of men. I guess the dads are OK with it. Wonder what the moms think

What?! Are you serious?! Are they serious?! URGGH!

Oh, they appear to be exceedingly serious about it.

Not altogether unlike dunking a kid in a pool of water, although admittedly more dangerous.

Probably less painful and dangerous than circumsision though (a ritual that we chose not to participate in with James)
