Posting few photos of one my relatives, she is coming in this mela from past 13 years and doing “Kalpwaas“. Kalwaas is a holy stay in mela for the month of “Maagh“, during this time pilgrims performs holy rituals, eat one meal a day, give donations, take bath in holy river, sleep on floor and spend rest of their time praying to the God. Living in these makeshift houses is quite an experience :)…
