Ganga (Gangeas) Day

... burning a body. The bodies are rubbed in butter, and dare I say it, but it didn't smell bad at all. Not a hint of human hair or any other horrible smell. About 20 meters down, they were preparing to wash a body in the Ganga before taking it up for cremation. The body was laid flat on a wooden structure and covered in bright orange cloth with various beads and flowers on it. A cooling but dangerous tuc-tuc ride across town and we found ourselves in a western ...

... to do the passage. This place really makes it clear that it doesn't matter how rich or poor you are, the end is fatal and we all end up in the same place. Women traditionally have not been allowed at the cremation ceremonies because they are viewed as weaker hearted or emotional. When someone cries over a dead body, the crying holds the soul to the earth making it harder to pass over to heaven or hell. In order to help with this transition, women typically ...

The lonely planet didn't fill us in on that one or advise a nose peg!
We then stopped at one of two 'burning ghats'. This is ...

... this time not only from the sun, but from the fires burning. We had made it to Manikarnika Ghat (the large burning ghat) and were uneasy in our steps to get close to this place of gathering for the final moments of a loved ones life. We were lucky to have a young man softly tell us to follow him as he would guide us safely through this experience.

... a really nice meal for us. We were all craving some non indian food so they surprised us with pasta and fresh cut chips. It was so so good! You can't eat any meat or drink alcohol on the Ganges so we couldn't have any drinks. We lit a fire with some cow dung!! It worked our well. Surprising enough I slept all night. We woke up to a nice breakie of toast ,porridge and of course Chai! We set off for Varanassi for another 4 ...
