Photo and caption by Harsh Wardhan
Old & weak, young & frail, able & disables they were all come to this massive aggregation of human beings. It was basically a congregation of poor & rural folks Taking photographs was obviously difficult in such a mass gathering as there is always a danger of stampede & all the times there is pushing & jostling. It is a show of immense power of faith & religious beliefs. This scene attracted me a lot. A daughter in law comforting her tired mother in law. Such faith, such respect only possible in India
