Kumbh Nagar (Allahabad), Jan 30 : Barbers, pandits and small vendors, who comparatively witness low business, are in great demand in the ongoing Maha Kumbh mela in this religious city of Uttar Pradesh.

Elated barbers, who comparatively witness low business, want that the Kumbh should never end. "Kumbh has enabled us to make lucrative profits, owing to the huge rush of devotees that believe in mundan and related ceremonies," one of the barbers said gratefully.

As Kumbh is a big religious affair, it is enabling his tribe to earn more bucks than usual, he adds.

Similarly, pandits are doing brisk business in this religious congregation having a great relevance not only among Indians but visitors from across the globe.

Ram Pujan Shastri, a pandit, said that he earns nearly Rs 2,000 a day by performing prayers. "I am happy with my remuneration that will continue till the 55-day-Kumbh mela lasts," he tells.

Barbers and tea sellers are also working round-the-clock at Kumbh to maximise their returns.
