Naga Sadhus & other pictures of Kumbh Mela Allahabad
There are a lot of things that happen only in India and it is just not possible to find a parallel of them anywhere in world. Kumbh Mela is one such relegious event. I sorely missed going to the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad due to various reasons. I badly wanted to go, when our photography group HWS or Hyderabad Weekend Shoot were planning to go there. But as they say in India you do not go to a holy place, the holy place calls you. So when the photography group returned I requested Vijay Jata a senior member of the group if he would be kind enough to share his pictures to be published on Desi Traveler he agreed. So here dear friends are beautiful pictures clicked and magnanimously shared by Vijay Jata. I present pictures from Kumbh Mela clicked by Vijay Jata.
Vijay: We have been to Maha Kumbh mela at Allahabad and experience the Hindu Traditional of mass Hindu pilgrimage of faith in which Hindus gather at sacred river Ganga or Ganges for a bath in the river. Here are some pictures of Kumbh Mela, where we clicked Naga Sadhus, Pilgrims, devotees Indians and Foreigners both who had come to Kumbh Mela. Some were tourists, some were devotees, some were lost souls trying to find a meaning and some were photographers like us. But no matter what our purpose to visit Kumbh we were all one little speck in this largest congregation of humans on a single place on planet earth.
