Photographer's Note

Another picture that I took in Varanasi, just wandering around by the river Ganges (Ganga in hindi). These women were having a bath in the holy river, something that is an hindu ceremony. People from all over the country go there to be able to have a bath in these waters, and many people come to die in Varanasi, as they want to rest in this river. Due to that you can see daily corpses being cremated by the river, and then thrown to the waters of Ganga...
