The Kumbh Mela occurs every twelve years at the Indian city of Allahabad. During this event, millions of Hindus from all around the world converge at the confluence of three holy rivers: the Ganga, the Yamuna, and the mystical Saraswati. Here a temporary city is built on the dry river bed to accommodate the religious pilgrims and the revered Sadhus and Swamis. In a predominantly male-centric event, this story focuses on those who dwell outside of the spot light. These are the Mela Women.
