Photo Of The Day ~ Arrows Of Money

Introducing Siat Khnam; a unique and very interesting way of gambling, where money is won by betting on the number of arrows that will hit the target. Held every afternoon in Shillong, India, the event is a great way to unwind a day, and maybe earn a few bucks on the way. More interesting are the shooters, most of whom are either old men, drunkards or jobless persons. Out of the numerous arrows shot, only a few make it to the target, while the rest turn out to be sources of amusement for the jobless crowd.
