Gangasagar
Jan 15, 2013

Sagar, a teardrop shaped island lies at the confluence of the Hughli River (our parts we call it the Ganga) and the Bay of Bengal.

Revered in Hinduism, the devout make a bee way to Sagar to take holy dip in the confluence on the occasion of Makar Sankranti, usually the aides of January. A massive congregation, a fair of incomprehensible proportions, Sagar becomes a celebration of humanity- beggars, mendicants, pilgrims, tourists, photographers, vendors... cops and managers.... The smells of dust, salt spray, cannabis.... cow dung..

Some images from this years 'mela' as we call it...



Hope you like them.
