Allahabad: Mahakumbh has become privy to peculiar groups of sages, each unique in their own sense. Amongst them Mastana Baba from Punjab, wins hands down. He toiled hard to reach the Kumbh site, after covering a distance of a few thousand miles. His message to the participants at the Kumbh is that of education and prevention of terrorism.

The most unique thing about him is his 2,000-meter-long turban (Mahapagdi) which weighs more than 80 kilograms. He seeks to spread the message of peace and brotherhood with the help of his unique turban.
