It is billed as the largest gathering of humans. All united by a common cause ó washing away a lifetime of sins by taking a plunge into the confluence of three rivers, the Ganga, the Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati, in Allahabad. This year, more than a 100 million devotees are expected to take the holy dip across the 55-day Maha Kumbh, a Hindu festival that occurs every 12 years. Snapshots from the spiritual carnival.
