    For those interested in such things {and also the latecomers on the scene, who rail on & on about TRADITION} ...

    MAHA Kumbh Mela, involving 100 million Hindu participants in 55 days ... has just begun.

    From the BBC article:
    Although the gathering is held every 12 years, this year's festival is what is known as a Maha Kumbh, which only occurs every 144 years and is always held at Allahabad.​

    Namaskar
