Thank you, Kirsten! The Hindus believe the Ganga's water is holy and more than safe. I would not want to test that idea! :)

Hello Steve! When I was young, my father used to tell us stories about his adventures when he vagabonded around the world from 1929-1930. He worked his way, included on ships, as he had almost no money. One of the things he told us about was participating in this ritual and I am sure he would have mentioned Ghats, though I am not sure. He lived to age 95 so I guess it did not "hurt" him! Thank you for helping me remember his stories. A f/v. Kirsten

Thanks a lot, Emna.

Wow..... This is nice
