Some of India's needy millions. This heart-rending scene is enough to make every one of us turn pale and shudder. The fact that each individual one, among India's benighted three hundred millions, is an immortal human soul like yourself, is not only appalling but also appealing, in the highest degree. The superstitious people imagine if they bathe in some so-called sacred river, at a certain appointed time, this will wash away all their sins. Their very presence here is a striking evidence that they are hungering and thirsting after rightiousness. Multitudes of them have come for hundreds of miles, some of them even measuring the whole distance with their bodies on the ground. Surely such earnest seekers after God deserve the Gospel at our hands! On the great day of their Merah assemblage, between a million and a half and two millions of people make a pilgrimage to the Ganges and the Jumna Rivers.
