Observing the sea of spirituality as I floated down the Ganges in Varanasi at 5am I was amazed to see two gentlemen in their primitive rowing boat watching TV, perhaps catching up on last night’s show. On second glance the ingenuity of these particular hawkers became clear as they tried to sell DVDs to the flotilla of tourists observing ancient traditions on the river banks.

Location: Varanasi, Uttar, Pradesh, India
