Welcome to the Kumbh!

I am enjoying the posts from India from Gopal Patel. He is at the Kumbh Mela. It is the once every 12 years Hindu festival that takes place on the banks of the Ganges.http://blog.bhumiproject.org/

Kumbh Mela India

Gopal is Project Manager of the Bhumi Project. He works with partners in India to find ways to make Hindu pilgrimage sites more environmentally friendly. This reduces environmental degradation around the sites.The sites also act as places of education for visitors about environmental issues.

The Bhumi Project is the Hindu element of a world-wide multi-faith movement looking at the greening of pilgrimage sites.
