An old sadhu getting dressed up while listening intently to another after taking the holy dip into the Ganges. It was delightfully wonderful to intimately watch the reclusive sadhus living their lives. The day was ending, yet the mass of people still to take bath in the river was only multiplying every hour. It is estimated that about 3 million people took a holy dip on this auspicious day at the Kumbh Mela 2013.
