Earlier this month, I was on an overwhelming trip to the Himalayas. But before going up the massive hills, I halted at two lovely towns in its foothills – Haridwar and Rishikesh. Not being that religious person myself, my visit to these towns brought me across the tremendous faith of people – the followers of 'Hinduism' primarily. Yes, these towns are famous religious sites, dotted with many temples, ashrams etc and the Holy Ganges flow through both. I was fortunate to get glimpses of people taking holy dips in the ghats of both the towns, that I had often only heard about till now, read in books or seen in the movies etc.
