A Hindu holy man of the Juna Akhara sect takes part in a ritual that is believed to rid participants of all ties in this life and dedicate themselves to serving God as a "Naga" or naked holy men, at Sangam, the confluence of the Ganges and Yamuna River during the Maha Kumbh festival in Allahabad, India, Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013. The significance of nakedness is that they will not have any worldly ties to material belongings, even something as simple as clothes. This ritual that transforms selected holy men to Naga can only be done at the Kumbh festival. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup)
