It is also the city that attracts the biggest spiritual gathering in the World. Do you have a picture from the Khumba Mela?

Really like the colors in this one. They form a weird contrast to the (dirty?) water...

Even if the people were performing rituals in the ganges river as a sacred ritual it poses a serious threat to the Environmental Protection Agency

Pollution in any form is sinful as referenced in this *reuters news article

Amazing shot. Everything came into alignment at just the right moment. The color, composition, movement and moment of stillness the one woman looking at the viewer provides really draws us in.

Wow...
This is absolutely gorgeous.
I hope that when other people see this, they stop to appreciate the glimpse they are getting into another culture.
