I would say its true and I am sure your visit to the hills of India was a superb experience.

When one gets to see over 500,000 people in one place such as this gathering in Gangasagar - the sheer variety of faces, structures, languages, and contradictions- does lead to a sensory overload of sorts.. The latest Iphone and the primitive box of matches, a pair of designer shoes, a 5DMIII and a Vivitar manual SLR... all in front of you.

Pickpockets, conmen, godmen, quacks, sellers of herbal medications and aphrodisiacs, kids playing, elderly people getting lost and weeping, and weeping again when they reconnect with their family... Gangasgar is (and Kumbh too), is a magnificent showcase of the subcontinent.
