Indians exorcised of evil spirits at ghost fair

A devotee who is believed to be possessed by evil spirits shouts slogans as she runs in a state of trance around the courtyard of Guru Deoji Maharaj temple during a ghost fair at Malajpur village in Betul district in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh Jan 27, 2013. People from across India come to this fair to be exorcised of evil spirits. They are usually brought by relatives and they are most often women. The exorcism involves running around the temple courtyard to make the 'ghost' weak then being beaten by a priest with a broom. Picture taken Jan 27, 2013.[Photo/Agencies]
