10) How do the Solidarity Service and the Indian ceremony compare to each other?

Both ceremonies are religious in nature and involve hypnotic music with a heavy beat and dancing in a circle. There are only twelve participants in the Solidarity Service ritual. They dance to the tune of a nursery rhyme, and their ritual leads up to an orgy. The Indian ceremony involves a great many dancers and onlookers and is more dramatic and violent. The dancers carry snakes, and the dance leads up to a man being whipped.
