The millions of Hindi pilgrims that converge to the Kumbh Mela don't have backpacks. They just carry their belongings in a bag on their head, like this old Hindu man.

 

Photo taken at the Kumbh Mela 2013 festival near Allahabad (India)

 

Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.
