a nice moment captured dear brother. Like your composition. Natural colours. Good light management. Only the horizon is a tilt one... But overall it is an interesting shot of daily life. Tfs.

Its really cool Indrasish.
Beautiful colours in soft light and a compact composition. You have captured an interesting moment.
Very nice shot.
With expectation of a kite-photo,

Thanks for your note, for a moment, I thought this was perhaps sun block! A great scene of a moment daily to so many, but never seen to so many more. The Ganges is one of those places I truly hope to see someday, it is such a life force for so many.
All the best

sei molto bravo nel catturare ed immortalare in belle fotografie particolari realtā dell'India che possono apparire originali a noi europei, ma che fanno parte della cultura della nazione nella quale vivi.
Un ottimo scatto caratterizzato da una particolare nitidezza che mette in risalto l'intensitā del personaggio.
Ciao e buona serata

White soap is clearly shown in good contrast, Indrasish.
I believe those sights are common throughout town and river location's.
Face expression also impressive on image.
