MUMBAI: IBN7 brings to its viewers the
most comprehensive programming on
one of the biggest annual religious
events for Hindus, the Magh (Kumbh)
Mela.

In accordance with the traditional
Hindu calendar, this holy fair is
organised every year during the Hindu
month of Magh. The Magh Mela is
actually a smaller version of the Kumbh
Mela, hence is also known as the mini
Kumbh Mela. Magh Mela is held every
year on the banks of Triveni Sangam
(the confluence of the three great
rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati)
in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. Every year,
the Magh Mela commences on the day
of Makkar Sankranti in January, with
multitudes of pilgrims taking a holy dip
at the Sangam. A huge number of
devotees arrive here annually and stay
in makeshift houses or tents at the
Sangam, spending the entire month of
Magh in prayers. This period is known
as "Kalpavas". IBN7 will bring out the
historical facts about the famous Magh
Mela along with its lesser known
facets.

From Monday, 5th January 2015, IBN7
will air a half-hour show @9.30 am to
portray the cultural spectrum and
identify the spirit that defines this
tradition. The series will feature the
temporary city set up for this religious
gathering, saints talking about the
myths related to the Mela and
Kalpavas, stories behind the food
organized for Kalpavasi, the various
rituals to be followed, the enchanting
songs and bhajans that are sung and
many more such interesting facts. An
extensive line up of walk throughs,
short stories and live telecast of the
maha snans will be covered by IBN7's
team of reporters.

Don't miss the exclusive daily show
starting from 5th January 2015, every
Monday to Saturday, 9.30 AM-10 AM,
only on IBN7
