Despite increasing cases of corona infection in the country, The Government went ahead with the festival of Kumbh in Haridwar, Uttarakhand. About 1 crore people participated in the fair from all over the country between March 11 and April 16, 2021.
Every day more than 100 tons of garbage came out of this Kumbh Mela, with 150 tons of garbage collected from Haridwar city. But the question is, where did so much garbage go in the midst of a pandemic?

first thing that comes in mind about garbage is how indian government can buy submarines, weapons, warships ... without recycling rubbishes surrounding daily life
government spending budget on army instead of factories recycling garbage reminds mi6 and gestapo politics polluting population to cover elizabeth illegitimacy
london suburb is the same with houses full of trashes in garden without any bureaucrat to gather and recycle them while cops swallow whole budget

haridwar is real india : real indians : not england : wonderful
but garbages are so massive that they fill arm of gang river absorbing whole water by drought and rejecting so noxious odors that it is almost impossible to go across bridges without collapsing or vomiting
some sadhus sit all day long on bridge without feeling affected by unhealthy particles floating in air
beside garbage, haridwar is unique experience
people going there since several thousands years without anything changed
living like before at "dawn of history" easying understanding of ancient egypt-mesopotamia-india-china-roma
unforgettable show from immemorial age
by night, fog over gang river carries shadow of sadhus walking and living aboard
spectacle reminding plato cave myth
