sacred waters

AMEYA NARVANKAR

To the millions of Hindus in India, the Ganges is not just a river but also a sacred goddess. The river in herself seems to have a life of her own, along with all the lives she weaves together, every little second, giving people a reason to believe that anything is possible with just a mere dip in the holy water. Everyday, the brightly painted riverfront steps see a myriad of pilgrims, eager to cleanse their sins and attain salvation. The true essence of Indian culture is at display as the Ganges flows serenely while the cherubs shower their bountiful blessings, over the eager mortals.
