Photographer's Note

An absolutely mandatory part of the Benaras or Varanasi experience is to take an early morning boatride, starting out before sunrise, going through the early morning mist until the sun's rays cleared the air. It is at this time when the temples at the river front are bathed in a lovely hue of orange and the ghats are just beginning to bustle with various activities and rituals.

In this frame I tried to capture the usual frenetic activities which happen in the Ghats early in the morning...still dark & the sun was yet to rise. Boats carrying tourists & pilgrims have already set 'sail' in the waters of River Ganga...almost like the armada setting out for conquests centuries back. On the left, a man watches the life unfold slowly in Benaras, himself in no hurry, epitomising the unhurried spirit of this eternal city
