Holy water

A Hindu devotee holds on to a security chain after he slipped in the strong waters during his bath in the Ganges River during the Kumbh Mela, or Pitcher Festival, in the northern Indian town of Haridwar on Feb. 10. Hundreds of thousands of Hindus take part in the religious gathering at the banks of the Ganges. The festival is held every 12 years in different Indian cities.
