Suggester says, "Its almost mandatory for a Photojournalist to shoot these type of images when in India. Therefore it isn't easy to make one that stands out as particularly good. Although there is a vast amount of bathing worshipers in the image, the photographer has succeeded in portraying the intimacy of this moment by a clever usage of focal point and spatial and color compostion."

Kumbh Mela takes place when the planet Jupiter enters Aquarius and the Sun enters Aries. This pilgrimage occurs four times every twelve years. There is a powerful impact when millions of people come together to engage in the collective bathing ritual.

I'm guessing the need to believe in things bigger than themselves is important to some, whether we think they're misguided or not is immaterial.
