The Kumbh Travelogue 2019 Anuj Tikku

Anuj Tikku’s travel writings on his blog draw enough attention of the readers that make him a celebrity blogger. However, his travel writings into a book are equally an interesting thing and his books based on his expeditions have attracted many readers who want to understand about particular places before travelling. After the Kumbh Mela of 2019 ended, Anuj Tikku launched an e-book on his Kumbh experience. The book is titled The Kumbh Travelogue 2019: A Photo Journey. And in a nutshell, the book is useful for the readers who have not made it to the Kumbh this year but want to know how the experience has been and what they missed.

“Kumbh has mellowed me and taken me in its wings. The sheer size is overwhelming. I was amazed as I walked back in the benign after the bridges and walkways on either side were just filled with pilgrims walking back and forth the Kumbh 2019.”

Yes, this is the real-time analysis that Anuj was doing at the time he was present there – one among the millions! This year’s Kumbh was one of the biggest gatherings overall and it needs to be expressed in an overwhelming frenzy and this is what Anuj has done in his book. He has described what he saw; he has expressed what he felt; he has analysed what he witnessed; he has shared what he could not keep to himself – and that’s how the book is. The Kumbh Travelogue by Anuj is a handbook for all the readers who want to know the magnificence of the 2019 Kumbh.

You, as a reader, will also know where to get the best Biryanis once you are in Prayagraj as Anuj has shared his experience of working with one Biryani centre during the Kumbh Mela this year. Moreover, you will also know what you can do with just one rupee…

The images that the author has included in his book help the readers relish the moments for real. The images depict a sea of people and an actual river just beside. Sadhus and Sages are everywhere. Shankaracharya to Naga Sadhus… every representative of Hindu Dharma is present at the Kumbh because just be being here one can feel the oneness with the One. Anuj Tikku has also shared his personal joys and realisations after the dip in Sangam and then his chantings, Yagna and Puja… you can feel in his writing tone the satisfaction of being present at the world’s largest gathering of religion!

With images and writing, the book on Kumbh is one to read… you should read this book if you want to understand what drive people to the land of Prayagraj… to the land of Sangam.
