Indian Ghostbusters - 05 Feb 2013 
Photographer Danish Siddiqui travelled to Malajpur village in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh to photograph the ghost fair at the Guru Deoji Maharaj temple where people who believe they are possessed by evil spirits come to be exorcised. They are usually brought by relatives and they are most often women. They come on the occasion of Paush Purnima (the full moon) as it is seen as the most auspicious night of the month. The fair has been taking place for the last 250 years, the head priest said.
