People In The Hooghly River

People soaking in Hooghly river

Many people were washing in the river

Shot in the city of Kolkata, India.

When I walked along the Hooghly river, I found some people on the edge of the water. I thought they were taking a ritual bath. So I approached them.

Getting close, I realized they were not taking a ritual bath. Many people were in the water place. And they were just taking a bath and the place looked like a public bath. Everyone freshened up and looked pleased. But because the water of the river was cloudy, I didn't want to take a bath together.
