Thank you!
Bali abounds in enigmas. It is frequently remarked that, for a culture so abundantly blessed with creativity, it is extraordinary that the Balinese language contains no word for 'Art'. This curious oversight may reflect the universality of artistic endeavor in Balinese society. That which in the West is taken as an expression of personal creative genius, in Bali is subjugated for the common good as part of a community's united efforts to entertain and gratify the gods

  33. 33. Cockfighting plays a very important role in the life of many Balinese men. A cockfight, in the simplest sense, is a fight between two roosters in a caged ring. To many men in Bali, it’s much more than this – it’s an obsession that has been passed down through the generations. Cockfighting is illegal in Bali and has been since 1981. The only exception is when a cockfight takes place for religious purposes. Bali is an intensely spiritual island made up of almost all Hindus; in Balinese Hinduism, the spilled blood in a cockfight is believed to expel evil spirits. Although it is illegal, cockfighting takes place throughout Bali.
