Now and here, rivers and woman in where soul dissolves in a timeless flow

A tiny dusty town called Allahabad hosts the world largest religious gathering on Earth “Maha Kumbh Mela” that is held once in twelve years. Hindus from all over the world head for Sangam where three sacred rivers meet (Ganges, Yamuna, and spiritual Saraswati River) to have a bath in the river water during Maha Kumbh Mela when this confluence is filled with full of holy energy. The lady in a yellow clothing was sitting at the riverbank every day, and offering a prayer to the holy rivers.
