Ghatted: The sacred and the profane

... Assi Ghat in the south along to the Ghat at the northern end. This took us past the two burning Ghats of Manikarnika and Harish Chandra. Here, bodies are brought, shrouded in colourful material and garlands of flower, on stretchers of wood and rope. This occurs 24 hours a day. The bodies are weighed on large old fashioned scales to determine the exact amount of wood needed for the cremation. The cost is dependent on the amount and type of ...

... bicycles and motorbikes and pushcarts and oxcarts and trucks and goats and tractors pulling heavily laden trailers and men pushing heavily laden carts and pedestrians and dogs and mule trains (yes, mule trains) for passage.

We had arrived late so after a quick shower to freshen up we headed upstairs to or guest house restaurant for a cheese and tomato toasty and fries before bed. On arrival at our guest house we had met a guy called Rajeev and had organised to meet him the next day for a non stop sightseeing day.

... area where the ceremony was underway. A puja or prayer ceremony is conducted at this ghat every day of the year. The night had set in, adding to the atmosphere. Anuj came to the back of the boat and said it looked like I wasn't enjoying myself. I replied it was more something to be taken in by somebody quite skeptical of anything religious.

Back on land and then walked back to where we picked up the bikes again, the streets a bit quieter. It was straight out to dinner at ...
