In this photograph taken on February 2, 2013 an Indian bookie counts the day's earnings at an archery club in the north-eastern city of Shillong.    Every weekday afternoon in the picturesque Indian city of Shillong, dozens of men meet to play with bows and arrows, place bets and gamble, keeping a centuries-old tradition alive. The origins of the game, known simply as Siat Khnam or Shoot Arrow and played by men belonging to northeast India's Khasi tribe, are unclear.
