The drums are called 'dhak' and are beaten on the lower side. Such was the rhythm of the beats, that even the main pandit was dancing to the tunes while offering prayers. Or maybe this is just the traditional way of the ritual. Adding to this, two men were fanning earthern pots filled with charcoal and 'jhuna' - to produce a steady thick smoke.
