Little hippie girl Ilita at the Kumbh Mela 2013 Hindu festival near Allahabad (India)
Ilita is carrying a pink butterfly barbie doll, a stuffed Mickey Mouse and a teddy bear.
She survived the huge storm that destroyed the Rainbow camp the night before (and caused major damages and flooding to most of the Kumbh Mela!). As long as she has her toys, all is good and she is happy!
Here is an article that tells more about this little girl and her mother, and their hippie way of life: www.openthemagazine.com/article/living/last-of-the-hippies.
Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.
