I've never seen such a large gathering of people before Kumbh. I've never been to a religious confluence with this magnitude before Kumbh. I've never seen so much faith before Kumbh. It was all makeshift; the tents, the shops, the restaurants, everything. A couple of months later, the entire place was submerged under water.

I cherished and questioned many things I saw there, including my own understanding of religion and faith.

More than 70,000 photographers apparently covered this event in February 2013 and I was one of them, attempting to document a phenomenon.
