The making of the tented city
For over thirty years now i have witnessed this amazing annual transformation on the banks of holy river Ganges & Yamuna in Allahabad(UP,India). In the months of November &December as the waters of these two rivers recedes to the lowest level, a temporary city of tents starts coming up on the sandy banks.In the next few days,around mid of January this place starts bustling with religious activities of the largest community in India,the Hindus.For almost one month these devotees stay in the tented accommodations,indulging full time into religious chores,in search of Moksha (salvation).Every six & twelve years,this annual affair metamorphosizes into the largest religious conglomeration of Hindus,famously known as Kumbh mela.
