When life gives you a cake with a cherry on top, but somehow takes the cake back and leaves you only with a cherry, be grateful anyway! Something very similar happened with me when I went to Varanasi (also known as Banaras or Kashi) off lately for 5 days, out of which 4 days were occupied with work and I was just left with 1 day to experience the holiness in the land of Gods!
The city is located on the banks of river Ganges and is widely known for its sunrises. I woke up at 4am only to witness the magical sunrise. The view blew me away. I felt I was just few blocks away from the sun yet felt a soothing warmth in the air. The sun hung large and low in the blue sky, shining brightly, casting a deep glow over the Ganges river.
