Varanasi, since time immemorial

  1. Varanasi … since time immemorial
  2. Early in the morning well before sunrise
  3. on the banks of the Ganga, the holiest of all rivers
  4. large crowds gather for the surya-darshan
  5. some take to the waters to enjoy the best views
  6. of the long line of ancient ghats
  7. leaving busy crowds far behind…
  8. the boats sail past old palaces belonging to royal families across India
  9. and ancient temples
  10. from every possible place people wait for the sunrise
  11. the boat passes the bathing ghats
  12. some seek salvation in groups
  13. some in solitary meditation
  14. the palaces speak of a glorious past
  15. alongside some even more timeless offerings
  16. rafts for birds to drink and bath in peace away from the congested town and river banks
  17. then comes the sunrise to the furious applause of cameras
  18. back on the ghats life goes on as always
  19. the reverent pray
  20. the not so reverent catch up with friends
  21. some seek salvation through alms
  22. birth and death an eternal cycle
  23. for the living simple commerce, a means for survival

  25. on others even flowers have few takers
  26. no guarantees in life that’s the secret
  27. keep your faith whatever form it takes
  28. then in the evening enjoy the arti
  29. in the company of fellow seekers
