They come from all over India to attend the Maha Kumbh Mela. Millions of Hindus, gather on the banks of the sacred river to bathe and pray for salvation. It happens once every 12 years.

Entitled: One Day a Masai Warrior
This photograph was taken by David Lazar in Masai Mara, Kenya.
These Masai tribes people live in the wilderness of Kenya and still uphold most of their traditional values and customs. The colour red is worn to represent power, and accessories and body ornaments are be worn to reflect their identity and status in society. Traditionally, a Masai boy would only become a Masai warrior after he went out on his own and killed a lion, as a rite of passage.
