Thousands of people visit the ghats of the Ganga at Har ki Pauri at Haridwar to witness the aarti started several decades ago by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya. The tradition continues now unabated. The aarti is a sight to behold; you on the opposing side of the banks you will see the priests light up the lamps. Slowly, these priests start to moving the lamps in a rhythmic, clockwise direction. The reflection of the lamps then become visible on the waters of the Ganges. The mighty Ganga has a strong current which is indicative of its purpose in lifeloving unconditionally all those who come to its banks.
