t he Kumbh Mela festival
For centuries, where the Ganges and its Yamuna tributary meet, Hindus
gathered to wash away their sins; they came and paid a pittance to
the holy men for lodging and food, while absorbing their spiritual wisdom.
But in 2019, the gurus’ smoky old tents lay empty, because this year,
the pilgrimage coincided with a national election, and Prime Minister Modi,
whose party has its roots in Hinduism, saw a great opportunity to impress
voters. So, new luxury accommodation was built: there was access to water
