I shot this picture at the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar, a mass Hindu pilgrimage in which nearly 100 Million Hindus gather at the Ganges river. I really recommend being part of the Kumbh Mela once in your lifetime - it’s an experience you will never forget! The next Kumbh will take place in Allahabad (Jan. 27 - Feb. 25, 2013).
For my German speaking followers: Together with some friends I produced a 40 minute radio feature about the Kumbh Mela for the Austrian station “Radio OE1”, you can listen to it here.

World’s Most Expensive Home

India’s richest man, and Forbes’s fourth richest man, Mukesh Ambani, has built the world’s most expensive house in Mumbai. It is estimated to be worth $1 billion.
The lavish building– named Antilia, after the mythical island– has 27 stories, is 173 meters high and has 37,000 square meters of floor space — more than the Palace of Versailles. It contains a health club with a gym and dance studio, at least one swimming pool, a ballroom, guestrooms, a variety of lounges and a 50-seater cinema. There are three helicopter pads on the roof and a car park for 160 vehicles on the ground floors. It’s obviously quite a job keeping all this running smoothly, so the house, if you can call it that, also boasts a staff of 600. And all this for just Ambani, his wife and their three children to enjoy.

Ancient tribe becomes extinct as last member dies →

morrowplanet:

rinaedin:

New Delhi, India (CNN) — The last member of an ancient tribe that has inhabited an Indian island chain for around 65,000 years has died, a group that campaigns for the protection of indigenous peoples has said.

Boa Sr, who was around 85 years of age, died last week in the Andaman islands, about 750 miles off India’s eastern coast, Survival International said in a statement.

The London-based group, which works to protect indigenous peoples, said she was the last member of one of ten distinct Great Andamanese tribes, the Bo.

“The Bo are thought to have lived in the Andaman islands for as long as 65,000 years, making them the descendants of one of the oldest human cultures on earth,” it noted.

With her passing at a hospital, India also lost one of its most endangered languages, also called Bo, linguists say.
