    An Indian Sadhu (Hindu holy man) takes a dip in the sea at Gangasagar, some 155 kms south of Kolkata, India, on January 15, 2012.

    Some 400,000 Hindu pilgrims gathered at the Gangasagar Mela (Fair) to take a dip in the ocean at the confluence of the River Ganges and the Bay of Bengal, on the occasion of Makar Sankranti, a holy day of the Hindu calendar considered to be of great religious significance in Hindu mythology.
