Kumbh Mela: The World's Biggest Gathering
The world's biggest gathering, Kumbh Mela forms a place for the salvation of mankind who wish to be free of the cycle of life and death. In the camps one gets a respite from what has been estimated to be 50-110 million fervent devotees. And the locals know how to organize all the minute details with that perfect Indian hospitality. As a hotelier, I was mighty impressed.
