March Of The Nagas

There's so much to see at Kumbh Mela that you'd better be prepared for the unexpected. While walking the festival one afternoon, suddenly the cops blocked a street for a special procession.

Make way for the nagas!

Nagas? They're a sect of sadhu and these gentleman are in training. Yea, they're devoted.

Their escorts weren't too friendly. Poke your camera where they thought it didn't belong and get ready for a stiff hit from a bamboo stick. This guy is getting ready.

Another look as they march by, in formation.
