A memorable visit to Maha Kumbh : Largest gathering on Earth

Finally, I am back to my blog. Just so you are not confused, I came back from the MahaKumbh way back but I just never came back to post my updates. So here they are.

I had originally planned to write so much about it but now I think I wont write my thoughts. Instead – let me show you what I saw there and let you find your own like or not for it. I may, if time permits, write more in detail about my experiences but for now – enjoy some visuals and let me know if you like these.

Maha Kumbh Pics

Honestly – just like its difficult to express in words – any of your favourite places where you realize you breathe also, it will be difficult for me to describe the feeling. Did I like it – yes. Will I go there again – very likely. Will I recommend others to go – Yes, but only with proper preparations.

Overall, it was a pleasant experience. I enjoyed it. But I do realize that I was amongst the few priviledged ones to enjoy it the way I did. It can indeed be a little pain for those who have no local connects or know how of in-roads.

Feel free to enquire for any details about the visit. Will be glad to help.

  1. …glad you mentioned at the start only that you came back from there long back.. otherwise I was worried how long will it take to wash away sins @ MahaKumbh πŸ™‚

    jokes apart… good that u hv experienced it. I’ve been to Prayag once but not during Kumbh.. and that too when I was 6-7 yr kid. I would love to visit there again… and will surely inquire you for all the details….

  2. Hey Smita, this is indeed the happening moments that you have captured.
    Though, i have never been there, but surely will take guidance from you when i plan to visit.
    Keep on the postings. πŸ™‚
    Cheers,
    Anurag Singhal

  3. Picture can speak thousand words…good collection!

  4. Smita, Thanks for posting some nice pictures which depict the event. However, despite the saying that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’, honestly speaking I find your words more powerful. You have af great story-telling sense and style. You make things come alive and make the reader move and feel with you. I do understand that that this piece has been inordinately delayed as you have been rather busy with your business at hand. Hoping that you do manage to find some time
