Okay! Mr. Tharoor.. Let me share my experience when I visited Varanasi and Prayag for the first time in January end this year.

I saw all the work happening under #NamamiGange @cleanganganmcg project. In this thread, I will be sharing some of those insights -
After dedicated efforts of @cleanganganmcg team, No sewage will go directly in Ganga in Varanasi now. 100% sewage treatment will achieve by July 2019 (deadline is around Nov 2019)

Just few MLD sewage is going to Ganga currently
Sewage Treatment Plants will be based on performance. 15 years contract - If contractors failed to do so - they will not get full money (This ensures the work will keep on going, unlike whatever projects INC started) Soon Ganga will be clean.

Not rituals — #Kumbh gave me a window to look at the vastness of India, its people, it’s Oneness.
Not rides — Kumbh gave me eyes to look within, to see the beyond, to become part of the whole, merge into our civilisation.

My discovery:
You are Kumbh.
I am Kumbh.
We are Kumbh.
For me, faith is not going-through-the-motions of habits, rituals, dips, recitals, teekas, ceremonies.
I went to Kumbh as an observer — not tourist, mind you, but an Observer.
I went to see what brings millions of devotees to a single geographical point in 49 days.
I went to seek non-religious answers:
— What is this festival all about?
— What brings 200 million pilgrims to this place?
— What gives them the strength to brave the long walks, the risks?
— What gives them the grit to take dips in winter-waters of the Ganga?

Kumbh Calling. Will be at Kumbh for the first time in life, traveling solo so no chance of getting lost, but let's see what I find & what finds me. If you are in #prayagrajkumbh for next 4 days, connect on. #travel #KumbhMela #kumbh
My Kumbh journey begins with Triveni Arti - live music, everyone singing along #travel #kumbhmela #Prayagraj
Baba Munna Giri of Ramanandi Juna Akhara, who lives on a 2.5 X 3 feet asana, even sleeps on that. A dhuni is always next to him. #travel #kumbh #prayagrajkumbh
