Ganga Aarti

Ganga aarti - the worship of Mother Ganga. In one of the holiest cities of Hinduism and one of the oldest still inhabited cities of the world, in The City of Life: Kashi, -or with its other name Benares (Varanasi)- every evening after sunset young Brahmins (Hindu priest) gather on the river bank to perform their ancient rituals. Rituals that link us back to the spirit of Nature, that personify the eternal flow of the river, and transform it into the hope for the past, the present, and the future generations. The basic elements of fire, holy water, flowers, smoke , movements, chanting, all unveil our common root with the embracing universe, and lead us beyond reasoning. And, in spite all the commercialisation of modern age, in the grace of the Brahmins' movements there it lays indeed the hidden wisdom of the thousands of years. Feel it...

Fishing crayfish during low tide in the Arabian Sea, near Alibag.

at Low-tide

These small children are playing on the seashore when the water retreats to low tide. Meanwhile, their parents collect the dinner of the family. The women are gathering sea shells from rocks, and the men are fishing crayfish, a bit further deep in the sea.


Adopted to environment; by heart...

What terrifying and wonderful things those eyes will witness in the next few decades!? Before they go blank...
