This was a parade we watched during the Kumbh Mela.  These guys are Sadhus: dreadlocked, marijuana-smoking, hindu spiritual men who renounce all material possessions and pleasures and travel around the country pursuing their spiritual paths…and smoking weed with tourists. 
Fascinating characters, they’re really revered by regular indians.  We were hanging out with some of them later and while we were there, lots of locals were coming up to give them offerings and to get blessings from them- only in india!
