“Some are more ready, some are less ready.”

“Everything is spitited here. What you can touch here, what you can smell here, what you can eat here,” a very enlightened Deva Rupa (her spiritual name) told me at the Maha Kumbh Mela. “All my sins are washed away,” she went on. “I feel joy, happiness.”

Like Diana (that’s her former name) around 100 million people (no one knows for sure) at the moment make their way to the world’s largest religious festival (that seems to be for sure) at the Sangam. That’s the place where three rivers – the Ganges, the Yamuna and for the Hindus also the mythical Saraswati – come together at Allahabad in North India.

I strolled among them and heard reawakened, puryfied, excited, energeticised, amazed, cured, relaxed and holyfied voices. And saw many amazing things. But I didn’t feel like having a holy dip in the Ganges. Well, as Diana alias Deva Rupa told me: “Some are more ready, some are less ready.”
