Maha kumbh Mela 2013

The Maha Kumbh Mela has begun on 14th January at Allahbad. It is estimates that over 1.1 crore people from India and other countries will bath today (14th January).

The festival is billed as the biggest religious gathering in the world. In 2001, more than 40 million people gathered on the main bathing day at Allahabad, breaking a world record for the biggest human gathering.

The Ardh (half) Kumbh Mela is celebrated every six years at Haridwar and Allahabad, the Purna (complete) Kumbh takes place every twelve years, at four places Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nashik. The Maha  Kumbh Mela which comes after 12 ‘Purna Kumbh Melas’, or 144 years, is held at Allahabad.

According to the Mela Administration’s estimates, around 70 million people participated in the 45-day Ardh Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, in 2007.

The previous Kumbh Mela, held in 2001 in Haridwar, was, before it occurred, estimated by the authorities to attract between 30 and 70 million people.

History Of Kumbh

According to the Hindu mythology, when Samudra Manthan took place,their was a fight between Ausurs and Devtas for Amrit. Seeing this,Lord Vishnu took the Amrit Kalash and went away.

While going, few drops of Amrit got out of the Kalash and fell at different places that are Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nashik.

That is why people take a holy bath in Ganga to wash out their sins.

School Fete

After every 2 years, a fete is organised in our school. It is organised for the sake of poor children. In this they will sell the things in the double amount then of that they will get from the market.

Last year, 2012 in December, a fete was organised in our school. In this, for the first time our classmates also put a stall in the fete. In this,  I was also selected. We did the prepartions. Then we thought that if we will give them different types of offers so that they may be attracted towards the kites.

We had our stall for Burger, Cold-drink, Coffee and kites as Makar Sankranti was coming near so might be people may buy the kites. Not only kites, but all the things related to kites.

On the day of fete, we came earlier to decorate our stall. We decorated it with ballons and other different types of decorated items whose names I don’t know.

I was so excited that whether the kites will sell or not. But to our surprise,  the kites were sold in good amount and soon they were over.

For decorating our stall, I came with my friend. My parents had to complete an important work that is why they came late. They came nearly at 1:30 pm. when they came I and my sister went to nearly at every stall.

We got back home at 3 pm. I was very happy.

My Mama’s Wedding

My mama’s wedding was held on 5th December in hotel Mughal. It was a special day for me as it was the first time I went in the barat of anybody in my relatives. As I have told you that the name of our new mami is Heena. She is very beautiful and polite in voice.

The Mughal hotel was also a beautiful hotel like Jappee Palace Hotel. We went to the hotel with barat. After reaching there, there was a rasam and then we went inside. There was music going on. After some time mami came. She was looking good in that dress.

The party was very good. One can get a variety of things available. Their were different sections present. For example- Their was Italian Stall, Indian Stall etc.

My mama and mami, both are doctors. In fact, their whole family is doctor. My mama, mami, mosi and nani.

Unfortunately, I was not able to get the recent photos of the weddind. Therefore, I was not be able to put it. As like the engagement, all the relatives were given a ‘shagun’ from their family.

I liked their wedding very much.
