Wild cannabis weed (India)

In many regions of India, Cannabis is endemic, i.­e.­ it grows naturally everywhere like a weed.­

I took this photo in near a tea plantation.­ The ditch between the road and the plantation was full of wild cannabis.­

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
