The Well is one of the world's most exciting carnival sideshows, where cars and motorcycles ride at seemingly impossible angles around a cylindrical 25ft-high structure - constructed by digging a hole in the ground and erecting hardwood planks.
Performers include stuntwoman Pooja Rathod, 20, who is happy to take her life in her hands by hanging from the roof of a car as it travels at breakneck speeds.
She said: "I have met with accident four times. Many people lost their lives and I have a lot of power and guts, so I really like it.
"Also, I consider myself an independent woman because not all girls can do this.”
Pooja, from Maharashtra, grew up in poverty and joined her team of four drivers at the age of 15.
The death-defying crew wear no safety gear and say the key to survival is maintaining concentration.
Pooja added: “Once I was in a very bad accident, my leg and hand were broken but during the other three I wasn’t injured much. After my accident I felt like leaving it but I couldn’t leave.
"Don’t try to be too smart, that's the only trick. When I’m up there then I don’t think about the audience because I have to continuously focus on my stunt and my bike.”
