Varanasi 2011


Aarti Puja

Nightly religious ceremony with music, dance and fire.

An important daily spiritual gathering, and a great free spectacle for tourists

The Puja-Pollution Paradox...

Rupesh in the back streets of Varanasi



Tuku ji does his Puja on the quieter and "cleaner" side of the river
