Worshippers believe a dip in the holy waters cleanses them of their sins. The Kumbh Mela in northern India, starting January 13 and stretching over 55 days, attracts ash-covered holy men who run into the frigid waters, a smattering of international celebrities, as well as millions upon millions of ordinary Indians to Allahabad, at the confluence of the rivers Yamuna and Ganges.
