Indian Diversities could be easily seen in the forms of art performed by the people here. One of the most unique arts that you could easily see here is “Maut Ka Kua” translated as Well Of Death. As the name itself suggests, Maut Ka Kua is a deadly well which has some dangerous stunts performed in it. The stuntmen or stunt women who perform these stunts are indeed very brave. And today we are going to introduce you to one such stunt woman Radha who is been putting her life on risk for about 20 years now by performing in this Maut Ka Kua.
The story is covered by Vice Australia along with Photographer Ken Hermann with art director Gemma Fletcher. Their whole group covered the story of this daredevil stunt woman Radha in Solapur, Maharashtra, India.
Radha was just 13 years old when the idea of being a stunt woman hit her mind. The feeling was so strong that she actually approached the boss of the show of Maut Ka Kua but he told her to first get the consent of her parents. And after getting the green light from her parent’s side she was actually performing the stunts alongside one of the most daredevil stuntmen.
Radha is now performing the stunts from 20 years now. And she has never witnessed any accident or injuries during her performance. She even gets paid more than her other workmates because of her experience and accuracy in the field.
Maut Ka Kua Or Well Of Death is basically a deep well like structure in which stuntmen run their vehicles through its circumference. Despite being so dangerous and deadly, this stunt is performed and enjoyed widely in India.
The bravery of Radha brought the attention of many and now she is well established in her field of work.
