‘Nyepi’ Haiku : The Asahi Shimbun, Today

Nyepi is the Hindu-Balinese New Year’s day. In the lead up to Nyepi, people create large sculptures of Ogoh-Ogoh (demons) … Large, scary-looking statues that representing negative elements are carried through the streets with lots of music and noise. They are brought to the beach in a torch-lit procession while people bang pots and beep horns to make as much noise as they can, to scare away evil.
