... boat ride along the river and this is where life along the ghats is spread out for the world to see. We had the same rower as last time, 70 years old and as fit as a fiddle but his cataracts were worse bless him. It's not quite right watching people bathing in the morning but they are happy for others to see their devotion to the river and don't care who photographs them. We got up to the burning ghats and a couple of bodies were arriving on bamboo stretchers for cremation. ...

... law here. As my hotel manager said later, “Westerners aren’t used to officials yelling at them, pushing them, or beating them with sticks. Indians are. This is the only temple that has such problems because it is the most sensitive one. The official probably just had a bad day.”

... masses started flocking in.

During the tour there was a lot of discussion about religion, mainly Hinduism. I never knew that Hinduism, or some form of it, is the oldest religion supposedly going back 5000 years and with the oldest religious texts dating back to 1700BC. It was also interesting to hear about how big a part of politics and society religion is, particularly where differences lie and friction occurs.

... swallowed up by smoke from the fires. Somehow, it was beautiful to watch the flames dance against the darkness. The silhouettes of loved ones stood out as they stoked the fire and mourned their loss.

We next watched the daily thanksgiving ceremony that has been taking place for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. People gather on the ghats to watch the priests go through the ceremony. They dance with fire and smoke and make beautiful music. I could have stayed there ...
