Hindus flock Kashi or Varanasi to cleanse their sins by dipping in the holy river Ganga. Most Indians long for the holy pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime, many towards their end. Thus Varanasi is a place of choice for the elderly to breathe their last. The picturesque ghats, cremation of dead bodies, the environmental pollution, the religious industry and the devotion of worshippers makes Kashi a photographers dream come true. While film maker Satyajit Ray's depiction of Varanasi in Aparajito remains an all time favorite, here are a few from my collection.
