Glance

Pilgrims migrated from a distant village of Bihar district of India flocked in the transit camp before proceeding towards their final holy destination, Gangasagar (confluence of river Ganges with Bay of Bengal), to undertake holy bath and to earn piety. Mass prayer while collecting the holy water of the river Ganges near the transit camp after mass tonsuring was interesting to witness. Sudden glance of one such pilgrim to the camera with the tonsured heads in the background seemed interesting to freeze the moment
