In this Jan. 31, 2013 file photo, Hindu holy men of the Juna Akhara sect participate in rituals that are believed to rid them of all ties in this life and dedicate themselves to serving God as a Naga or naked holy men, after taking dips at Sangam, the confluence of the Ganges and Yamuna River during the Maha Kumbh festival in Allahabad, India. 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/ Rajesh Kumar Singh, File)
