Holy rivers see this ritual where people take a holy dip or bathe in the waters chanting some mantras and prayers. Devotees believe that doing so can wash away their sins and give them a blessed life ahead. However, not everyone can make it to bathe in cold temperatures as the water would be chilling as ice. As pilgrims were seen in dilemma to dip in cold water at a holy river, a man offered help in a quirky business way.
A video showing a man giving 'proxy' holy dips has surfaced on the internet and gone viral.
