Hi Pat, thanxs for the comments! Indians not always get a bath there for a holy activity, many people all around India go in the morning to take their bath in the river. In every village where there is a river, there is always a place for women to bath, and another for men. You can see them there washing their hair, or brushing their teeth, and washing also the clothes. These women are not praying for sure.... at least not in this right moment.
It's a complete different culture... Chau chau!
