The practice is followed a day after Diwali – the biggest Indian celebration, also known as the festival of lights.

In the weeks leading up to Diwali, people in the village collect cow dung and store it in huge piles.

On the day after the celebration, a special prayer is offered to the Hindu Gods, before people start dipping their children, some still on babies, in the pool of dung.

Young babies were also rolled in the dung in the practice, which comes the day after the Hindu festival of Diwali

Groups of villagers gather around the heap and wait for their turn to place their children in the excrement.

The practice continues from dusk until dawn until each child in the village has had their turn.

The bizarre ritual has been followed for centuries and locals says their children have benefited because of the dipping.

A man guides his child towards the pile of dung and even picks some of it up, and rubs in into the youngster’s forehead
