More on Great Kumbh Mela Hindu festival

This 55 day festival in Allahabad is expected, according to BBC News  "to be the biggest religious gathering of humanity on Earth, with up to 100 million pilgrims bathing in the holy waters in January and February." That's quite a festival and as you can see, if you read the BBC News article, requires great collaboration with sanitation, police, food, medical care and hospitals, and even firewood for warmth at night. It will require about 80 million liters of drinking water,  25,800 tons  of wheat and  rice, and 35,000 toilets.  And I thought planning for the Olympics was tough!
