Kumbh Mela 2019

The staff of the beautiful Hotel Lemon Tree, welcomed us so warmly and as we got checked in we began greeting each other, we were then briefed and given our itineraries and ID’s.

The delegates were divided into seven groups named after Indian rivers, Brahmputra, Ganga, Godavari, Kaveri, Narmada, Saraswati and Yamuna, I was placed in Godavari.

It is said that the flowing waters of these rivers are believed to acquire divine qualities because of their unique astrological planetary positions during the Kumbh period.

It was a tight schedule of activities, so we were told to get some rest after getting our packages and having dinner as the following day would be an early start with several stops throughout the day. Of course we didn’t listen as while we ate everyone got to know each other, both in our groups and otherwise.
