Kumbh is our national heritage, which not only has spiritual and scientific significance but also has economic importance. Like Yoga, even Kumbh is India’s gift to humanity. Mumbai Kumbh is a platform to discuss ideas about Kumbh, it’s a Vaicharik (ideological) Kumbh.” Also Read - All Mumbai Schools Under BMC Limits To Remain Closed Until Further Orders
