Holy men called Sadhus and Hindu devotees are served a meal as they sit near the shore of the confluence of the Yomuna and the Ganges river at the Sangam in the early evening as they wait to be served a free meal organized by an ashram during the Maha Kumbh festival in Allahabad on February 7, 2013. The Kumbh Mela in the town of Allahabad will see up to 100 million worshippers gather over 55 days to take a ritual bath in the holy waters, believed to cleanse sins and bestow blessings.
