Hundreds of Thousands in India have gathered on the bank of river Ganges to take the holy dip in the frigid water despite alarming spike in the Covid19 cases across the country.

Hindus believe a bath in the frigid waters of the holy river during the Makar Sankranti festival, observed every year on January 14, washes away sins and frees them from the cycle of death and rebirth.

On Friday, a large number of devotees were taking a dip in the river in the eastern state of West Bengal, which is reporting the most number of cases in the country after Maharashtra state in the west.
