The KMP 2010 Team went to India during February and March of 2010 to experience the Kumbha Mela in Haridwar.
The trip was very eventful and media of every type was obtained.
More information about the trip will follow.
To begin, we have created a "photo album" of some of our friends that we met with with during the trip.
"During our stay in Haridwar for the Kumbha Mela, we spent a lot of time by the Ganges river. The images seen in this video are from David Brunn's Google Phone video, and my own Canon (camera) video. "Mother Ganges" represents our views of this sacred river, as seen through our low resolution videos. In some of this footage you can clearly hear the sounds of the Kumbh Mela going on in the background, echoing down the river from various locations. The song "Beloved", by Anoushka Shankar sets the perfect mood for this tribute." - Alex Johnson
