KUMBH-MELA.




. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

AN ESTIMATED 10 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE HAD THEIR 'HOLY BATHING' BY THE END OF TODAY,JAN'14 2013,AT THE CONFLUENCE OF RIVERS GANGES AND YAMUNA,AT INDIAN CITY OF ALLAHABAD ON THE AUSPICIOUS OCCASION OF 'KUMBH MELA' !

This Religious Gatherings Of Hindus For The SACRED BATH or HOLY DIP In The Ganges And Yamuna Rivers' Joint , Is Organised Every Three Years At One Of The Four Sacred Hindu Pilgrimage Places Namely, UJJAIN, NASIK, HARIDWAR and ALLAHABAD.
This Ritualistic River Dip Is Laden Heavily With Symbolism Derived From Hindu Mythology And Meant For The Cleanising Of People's Soul Of All The Mortal Sins And Make Them Pure All Over Again.
According To The Hindu Mythology, Once There Began A Fierce Battle Between Gods and Demons Over A Pitcher/Pot Full Of The Nectar(the immortality potion) And Amongst Gods,LORD VISHNU changed himself into a very beautiful n enchanting dancing diva by magical power and arouse carnal desire in the fighting demons through her spell of charm n beauty and somehow managed to take hold of that pitcher and fled away. . . . . . . . .and finally deposited that pot in the kingdom of Gods. . . . .during such running away with the pitcher,it is believed,FOUR DROPS OF THAT IMMORTALITY POTION FELL UPON THE EARTH AT FOUR PLACES. . .and,since then this Kumbh(pitcher full of liquid) Mela Has Been Held At These Four Places of Nasik,Haridwar,Ujjain n Allahabad !

The Old City Of PRAYAG(now,ALLAHABAD) Has A Rather Larger Importance And The Sacred Bath Organised Here Every 12yrs. Is Considered More Religiously Effective Than The Other Three Cities Of India.

As Per Planetery Cycle,This Year Assumes Vast Importance As Such Timings Occur Once In 144yrs. !These Things Are Exclusively Determined By Hindu Calender As Has Been In Vogue For More Than 2000yrs. !

The Last Such Occasion Occurred In 2001 At Allahabad And On The Day Of The Most Sacred Bath(In Hindi It Is Called 'SHAHI-SNAAN' which may be termed as 'ROYAL BATH' ),There Were Around 40 Million People Had Bathed(in a single day!) And, THAT'S A WORLD RECORDS OF SORTS FOR THE LARGEST HUMAN GATHERING AT A PLACE IN A SINGLE DAY!!
This Year,It Is Being Expected To Be Near 35 Million People On The Royal Bathing Day Which Falls This Year On February 10.

This Fair Will Go On For Almost Two Months (55 days,including today).

More Than 30 000 Policemen Are On Patrol Round The Clock And Various Technical Support Systems Are Being Harnessed For Monitoring People's Movements And To Deal With Any Untoward Incidents !

Thousands Of Foreigners Come To Have A Look n Feel Of This Fair!

Today,I Have Seen A Photo(In An Indian Daily,THE TELEGRAPH) Of The Nobel-Laureate Economist,JOSEPH STIGLITZ along with his wife on the bank of The Ganges In Allahabad.

As Per A Report In HUFFINGTON POST, Hollywood Actress CATHERINE ZETA JONES Will Be Also In The Town To See This Vast Humanity !
