A stuntman receives Indian Rupee notes from spectators as he rides on a motorbike inside an attraction called the "Well of Death" during the Sonepur Mela on November 16, 2011 in Sonepur near Patna, India. The cattle fair, held in the Indian state of Bihar, has its origins during ancient times, when people traded elephants and horses across the auspicious river Ganges. The mela used to attract traders from places as distant as Central Asia. It is one of Asia's largest cattle fairs and lasts for a fortnight.
