Humiliating punishment-India

The more humane punishments for anyone who dares to be different involve humiliation such as being paraded naked in public or having one’s head shaved. A woman was dragged naked through the streets with bells tied around her neck and her face blackened with shoe polish. A man was paraded naked on a donkey with a garland of shoes around his neck and a bell around the donkey’s neck so that people would hear and come running out to join the fun.
