    1. Some are quite eager to pose while there are few who stay away from all the flashes.

  4. That's what most fascinating thing about Kumb Mela, these Sadhu's and their mysterious life.
    Nice capture Niranjan.

  7. I know I may sound naive but i've never seen a naga sadhu before so I couldn't dare to look at the pic for more than 5 seconds!!

    1. There is always a first time. You can happily smile at them and they will return it for sure. Nice to see you here.

  8. OMG the Sadhu has been caught with his pants down or rather with his birdy up :) Great shot.

  9. I guess this what they mean by 'being comfortable in your own skin.' :)
    What is it that they smear all over themselves? Holy ash? Or is it that white dust you spoke of in an earlier post.

    Good one, Niranjan. :)

    1. Absolutely comfortable in his skin :). They smear ash all over them. It is not the white dust. Thanks Divya.

  15. Great picture! All the elements come together perfectly.

  16. Naga sadhus who epitomise renunciation, these days talk on mobile phone and pose for picture. Is this progress or modernity dragging recluse into the maelstrom?

  17. That's a fantastic shot! Really great!
