Balinese giant effigy locally known as "ogoh-ogoh" that represents evil spirits line up during a parade to celebrate Nyepi, the annual day of silence marking Balinese Hindu new year in Bali, Indonesia. Bali's annual Day of Silence is so sacred that even reaching for a smartphone to send a tweet or upload a selfie to social media could cause offense. This year it will be nearly impossible to do that anyway. The head of the Bali office of Indonesia's Ministry of Communications, Nyoman Sujaya, said that all phone companies have agreed to shut down the mobile internet for 24 hours on Saturday during the holiday that marks the New Year on the predominantly Hindu island.
