Lining Up At The Kumbh

India is crowded enough as it is, but ask 100 million people to show up in one place? Get in line.

At the Kumbh Mela, lines are a daily reality. All that grooming, eating, shopping, ashram-attending, you're not alone. Not even close. Time to queue up.

Here's a typical scene: a line snaking around a truck early in the morning; people waiting for supplies.

It's getting mighty crowded, no matter where you're queuing.

Lines to the right.....

...and lines to the left.

There are all sorts of reasons to wait. These guys are lining up to see the mobile optometrist.
