... the drivers with a few words. He struck a deal with one of the drivers and told us we'd be sorted. As I reached to my pocket to give him something he brushed my hand away.

Our walk alongside the river took us to Dashashwamedh Ghat famous for it's Puja show where priests perform dedications to Lord Shiva.
