We've heard about the chronicles of Kumbh Mela in Bollywood movies, and all we know about them is that a helpless mother loses one of her child in the mess of Kumbh Mela. However, Kumbh Mela is much more than that. It is a sacred congregation of pilgrims. Pilgrims all over India buy an air ticket to take a holy dip in the waters of Kumbh. Read the story of 'Humans of Kumbh Mela' captured in beautiful still frames. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
