Description

The Kumbha has been rightly described as India's ageless festival. It has been one of the greatest phenomena in which the collective urge of a race finds expression.

The Kumbha draws not only the mystic and the pandit, the ignorant villager and the superstitious woman, the businessman and the politician, but evokes deep-rooted sentiments in persons of the calibre, education and outlook of Dilip Kumar Roy and the highly sensitive and psychic Indira Devi. That it should evoke sentiments and lend inspiration to persons of such varied equipment in every stratum of life shows that there is something fundamentally important in the Kumbha.

The book gives a vivid description of the many sadhus and saints as also of the fakes and frauds whom the authors came across in the Kumbha.

This book is an outstanding classic - a literary creation in the field of hagiography-written by Sri Dilip Kumar Roy with the joint authorship of his daughter-disciple Smt. Indira Devi.

Amidst the negative atmosphere of God-denial this authentic account by the two pilgrims of the stars - Dada Dilip Kumar Roy and Mother Indira Devi - bring a new ray of light to the sincere seekers of Truth.
