Over 1 billion people, ancient civilization, etc.

We hear about how China is going to change the world due to it's huge population, but rarely hear about India, which has a similar size population.

Has anybody visited a Kumhb Mela?

The Kumhb Mela is a gathering each year, with a major event every 4 years or 6 years (?). It's a Hindu pilgrimage that culminates in a huge crowd that comes together to align their "energy".

The 2019 Kumhb Mela (which was NOT one of the major kumhb years) had between 120 Million and 250 Million devotees. This is reportedly the largest peaceful gathering, ever.

It's so big that it can be seen from space.
