In this lucid yet enlightening account, Nityanand Misra takes the reader on a whirlwind journey through the modern Kumbha Mela, the largest pilgrimage and the biggest festival in the world attended by crores of people. The book details the origin and symbolism of the Kumbha Mela, its dates and venues, and its awe-inspiring organization that has been called a wonder of modern-day management. It provides a personal close-up view of the visitors at the largest human gathering on earth—the sadhus, the kalpavasis, the tirthayatris, and members of newage Hindu movements. By shedding considerable light on the cultural aspects (literature, arts, and music) of the Kumbha, Misra shows how the mela is perhaps the most diverse and inclusive human gathering and how the tradition is immortal, as if made so by the "nectar of immortality" which is believed to have spilled on the sites of the Kumbha Mela. Throughout, the book shows how diverse participants come and work together at the Kumbha Mela, a result of samgacchadhvam ("move together" or "be united in your actions")—an essence that permeates the mela. Misra captures his personal experience too in Prayag, Nashik, and Ujjain, leaving an anecdotal touch to the narrative. The final chapter presents an overview of the upcoming Ardha Kumbha Mela in Prayaga in 2019..… ISBN - 9789388414104
