Essay on “Mahakumbh” Complete Essay for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.



Every religion has its own customs to pursue. Each religion has numerous disciples who in order to acknowledge the path of devotion and salvation have to leave their possessions behind them and divulge in the strict rules via meditation, concentration and asceticism, to learn about the secret of life, the values of a human. And when a human learns the secret of life and lives accordingly, he becomes divine, the warmth of whose radiance makes the angry calm, which soothes down every part of the body from the mind to the soul. And among those paths, one is taking a dip in the holy water of the Triveni at the Mahakumbh.

The Mahakumbh, a joyous and passionate celebration, is a large’mela’ organized once every twelve years on the bank of the ‘Triveni’, i.e. in Kumbhnagar in Allahabad where he three rivers-Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical underground Saraswati merge with each other, to form a unique ‘Sangam’ of the three holy water bodies to host the largest aggregation of human beings in the world.

While millions and millions of restless souls converge every dozen years at the Sangam to take a dip in the holy confluence of the three rivers, so that they can attain moksha’ or freedom from the earthly relations and possessions and hence can die in peace, the Mahakumbh is one of those rare occasions when one gets to see the vivid colours of life, feel what life is really about, feel the passion of life and can learn to live life the way it is.

With every train arrival comes a fresh batch of people who get mingled into the milling crowd waving energetically an showing a lot of exuberance.

The Mahakumbh is really a festivity connected to the Hindu religion. But this does not stop followers of other religions from taking pleasure of this great holy festivity. Even though several religious parties do not recommend several Muslims, Sikhs and Christians break this religion barrier and take a dip in the holy water.
