Suvabrata Guhathakurta (Mumbai), Kumbh Mela Photo Tour 2019
I had once heard one of my professors say that it’s not him or the institution that makes the student’s time worthwhile but it’s the classmates that makes the journey so special. The words are so true when one goes on one of these trips with Jassi. The participants came with varied backgrounds and from various locations with a common passion to explore and experience something unique. With the group around there was not a moment of boredom or fatigue.
This was my third trip with Jassi and like every trip before, he was outstanding as a mentor and perfect as a gentleman. Moushumee is an outstanding street photographer and if one can keep up with her energy one is sure to come home learning many tricks on the street. The way she has maintained her relationship with sadhus she met in her earlier visits to Kumbh, is a lesson on Relationship Management.
Must add that in that madness, Jassi and Moushumee ensured that we were all well fed and had some place to stay during the long cold night waiting for day break to capture the exuberance, energy, colour and spirit of Kumbh. The experiences of this trip are etched deep inside me and will stay with me for life. Thank you Xploring Light for making this happen.
