SummaryThe modern-day nomads, committed to non-violence and believing in spreading peace and unity among all communities of the world, and calling themselves “Rainbow Warriors”, have begun gathering at the Kumbh Mela of 2013 to spread their message of love for all.

says: “We live like nomads. People think we are hippies. But the fact is that what started as hippie movement (in the 1970s in Americas) has now become a spiritual movement. We are yogis.”

The community’s local contact, B K Kashiap, says: “With so many people from so many countries gathered, they feel it would be good to spread their message of peace and unity to the world in their own unique way. At this point though, they need a lot of help from the administration, particularly with the tents.” Mahendra Kumar, junior engineer of Sector-7 for the power department, said: “Our work of laying the power supply had been completed. After the Rainbow Camp began to be set up, we are now making arrangements on an urgent basis to extend the power lines by about 300 metres to 400 metres. Two street-lights near their camp have begun working by Monday evening.”

Dinesh Singh Yadav, in-charge for PWD in Sector-7, said, “We have been told to extend the stretch of checkered plates for vehicular movement up to their camp. The work should be completed within a few days.”
