With a population of 1.2 billion, India is a pretty crowded country. As it only occurs once every 144 years, the Hindu Festival of Maha Kumbh Mela, was always going to get an impressive turn out. However it was estimated that 100 million people gathered at the meeting of the Ganges and Yamuna rivers.
This mass Hindu pilgrimage of faith, where people gather to bath in a sacred river, saw crowds congregate at the meeting of the Ganges and Yamuna rivers. Rufus Blackwell’s video, with the fitting and dramatic title of ‘The Greatest Gathering of People Ever on Earth!’, perfectly captures the animated and excited energy of the throngs of people.
