night lights

the kumbh mela is a recurring hindu pilgrimage featuring many lights, a complicated social ordering, and many tens of millions of people trying to bathe along the same few kilometres of riverbank. the mela forms in allahabad, in a giant temporary tent city built on the dry floodplain of the ganga and yamuna rivers at the triveni sangam, where the two rivers meet each other and the invisible saraswati river. a place to which many have ascribed mythic powers.
