How sad?Why the pilgrims take risk and loose life in the name of God? In summer the water will be measurable in the river, but during the rainy season the pilgrims have to be very careful before getting into the river as they may be sudden rise in the water level.

Why the people get into the river to have holy bath, when they do no know swimming? They themself are responsible for this.
