INDIA: A tea seller waits for customers as Hindu devotees gather to take a dip in holy waters, at the Gangasagar Island around 150 Km south of Kolkata on January 14, 2016.
More than 500,000 Hindu pilgrims and Sadhus - holy men - are expected to gather at the confluence of the River Ganges and the Bay of Bengal during the Gangasagar Mela to take a ‘holy dip’ in the ocean on the occasion of Makar Sankranti, a holy day of the Hindu calendar, which has a great religious significance in Hindu mythology.  AFP / DIBYANGSHU SARKAR
