Redemption at the River Ganga

Photo and caption by Scott McGavin
Mark Twain said of his visit to the Ganges river in Varanasi, "there is movement, motion, human life everywhere and brilliantly costumed, streaming in rainbows up and down the lofty stairways". I visited Varanasi in January of 2012 and what I witnessed was the same as what Mark Twain described more than 100 years ago.
