In this Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015 photo, a Hindu devotee performs a holy dip in the Godavari River during Kumbh Mela, or Pitcher Festival, in Nasik, India. It’s just water, and far from the cleanest you could find. Raw sewage often flows in the Godavari River, bringing with it high bacteria levels. Residue from sand mining can cloud the water. Farm pesticides leech through the soil. But to the millions of Hindus expected at the Kumbh Mela festival, held this year along the Godavari, touching that water is reverential.
