Hirayma Ikuo said,"I also went to the Ganges River during my trip in 1969. In the early morning, many people bathed in the Ganges River...When the sun rises from the Ganges River, people gather together and become pilgrims who have had their body cleaned. From this scene, I learned the long-standing spirit of India."
