Varanasi, a magnificent city lies on the banks of river Ganga in Uttar Pradesh. Among the seven holy cities i.e. Sapta puri (Varanasi, Haridwar, Mathura, Ayodhya, Kanchipuram, Ujjain and Dwarka) Varanasi is the holiest one. I will not go into its history and geography as google is there for it.
Let me twitch into the story. When I was young, I watched "Joy Baba Felunath" directed by the famous director Satyajit Ray. But that time I was too young to grasp the concept of the movie. Last winter, during the vacation, I watched the movie again. There is no doubt that the movie is an incredible piece of the 70's. The beauty of the city portrayed so nicely by the director left me mesmerized. At that moment I decided to visit the place and make an archive. And I did so.
On 26th December I woke up with the first ray of the sun and stepped out with my backpack and camera. The destination was 'Varanasi' - the city of Ghats. On my way I googled the places to visit and read about the city just to get a brief knowledge. The next day as soon as I reached my exploration began and my first destination was 'Dashashwamedh Ghat'. I managed to find a room near Viswanathan temple, and I spent most of my time exploring the ghats and capturing them in my camera. I was mesmerized. It seemed to be the place from where I can collect innumerable snaps. I started with a sleeping saint. He had ashes on his faces and had matted hair, just like Lord Shiva.
