Been born in Allahabad I share an immense connect with this city and its every aspect and Kumbh Mela is one among them. I was just 5-year old I guess when I first saw Kumbh mela which was held in the year 2001 though I was not much sensible at that age so one thing which I remember is that it is one among the huge fair which takes place in our city all across the world.

What's more, aside from that, Allahabad has the Maagh mela consistently which is quite like the Kumbh mela, just littler in scale. So I have seen a reasonable piece of these melas.

The principal thing that strikes you about the mela is the sheer, enormous size of the occasion. A whole region of approx. 2000 hectares by the Sangam, the intersection purpose of Ganga and Yamuna, is changed over into a brief self-supportable township, with a couple of doctor's facilities, many police headquarters, a few make-move connects over the streams, and even a transitory railroad station.

The sadhus in their akharas (a gathering of sadhus) remain in tents like this alongside the sangam and to the extent, the eye can see, you will see such tents sprawled over the whole zone.

There are several akharas of sadhus set up, where individuals can sit and tune in to the pravachans (preachings). These additionally sort out langars, where needy individuals can have free nourishment.

On the most favorable days, it is extremely swarmed, and you need to remain in lines for no less than 5-6 hours to bring a plunge into the water. Be that as it may, on different days, it truly isn't highly swarmed, and you can basically wash up in a matter of minutes.

I don't generally think about the religious perspectives with respect to taking a blessed plunge, however, I have adored washing up in the Ganges all my life. It is constantly charming, and I adore the sentiment of washing in the cool, delicately streaming water of the Ganges.
