I quite don't understand the purpose of remembering kumbh Mela wrt to stampedes and deaths or in this negative way. It has been declared by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage site so the event has lots of merit in it. though deaths in stampedes are unfortunate, but if we look at number of tourist+prilgrims those who attended 2013 kumbh Mela was 7,86,65,500 and total deaths in stempede (that too not on kumbh site but at allahabad railway station ) as given in video is 36. so that percentage is 36/7,86,65,500 = 0.0004% . so I see no point as to why remember khumbh Mela in such a negative light.

so this 0.0004% are not humans ? what if they are our relatives or friends ?

Even the death of one person is unfortunate and should not happen. However this doesn't mean kumbh mela should be remembered only because of mishaps or "historic" stempede. We should also appreciate the exceptional management of administration and discipline of those 7,86,65,500 people. It would have been appreciated if this video was more balanced on both views.

Feb 10 was the day when this mishap took place. That is why it is being remembered as one of the historic stampede today. One doesn't find any reason to provide a balanced view while providing only facts that took place on this very day. One is remembering only deaths due to stampede and not the Mela per se. Its not Death Vs Mela. No one criticized the Kumbha Mela here and not even the administration for that matter. It is all about the facts presented. One's discretion is respected and is subjective for interpretation.
