Kumbh Mela- 2013

Link to my observations on the Kumbh Mela: http://www.tripatini.com/profiles/blogs/kumbh-mela-instant-moksha

The Kumbh Mela held every 12 years on the banks of Rivers Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati at Allahabad is supposedly the biggest religious fair on earth. Allahabad or Prayag is my home town and I grew up with the myths surrounding the three rivers.
Moksha is salvation and a dip in the sacred waters cleanses mind and body.

    “Kumbh Mela held every 12 years on the banks of Rivers Ganga” – yes, a big event, no European pope election is comparable …

    not easy to manage such an event … – maybe you can’t manage something like this – like a tsunami …

    I read that there re 80 million pilgrims who come to this festival. That must take quite some organising and the clearing up exercise afterwards must be on a massive scale.
