Hyderabad, India, June 8, 2009--A boy swallows a live fish dipped in homemade medicine--said to be an asthma cure--during the Goud family's annual gathering, which roughly coincides with the start of monsoon season. The free event has been running for decades and typically draws hundreds of thousands of people.

The fish, usually a murral or sardine, is said to clear phlegm as it wriggles down the throat.
