Varanasi & Allahabad For The Once-In-12-Years Phenomenon That’s The Kumbh Mela

I’ve never been much of a religious person but I’ve always respected different religions, their beliefs. After attending the Mahakumbh, all I can say is if it takes a religion to inspire millions of people from across the country, across age groups, braving the weather and the exhaustion that travels like this would entail, to converge at one place, bathe in a common water, letting an event of a scale as colossal as the Kumbh, go on almost flawlessly for over 3 months; faith can’t be bad.
