The Hindus consider Gangasagar in West Bengal as one of the holiest pilgrimmages…this small island is visited by a million Indians in every ‘Makarsnkranti'(14-15 Jan).

The shop is small and the food probably stale, but this is their once-in-a-life chance to see the great wide world, and they have a blast.
