From The Visitors

  • Piyush Chakravarty shares his experiences and tell if you visit the Mela during the day of Maha Snaan with just your clothes and towel, you will find people coming to you and distributing all the things you need from hair oil sachets to face cream, to even a comb, everything being given.
  • Archit Asthana says there was something special in the waters, divinity or whatever but there was something. It was a life changing experience.
  • I saw multitudes of people, streams of humanity all guided by faith and spirituality. I witnessed the magnificence of Hindu spiritual heritage. Someone barely had clothes to cover their body, while others joined in their luxurious vehicles. And it did not matter. I was filled with Vairagya, says Nitin Sharma.
