Photo and caption by Aravindan Rajaram

A 'naga sadhu' (a Hindu 'holy man' ) at Dr. Rajendra Prasad Ghat (steps leading to river Ganges), Varanasi, India. I noticed a lady convincing this 'naga sadhu' to get a picture with her friend. Giving in to the curiosity of getting the picture taken by the tablet, he obliged. I waited for around 45 minutes for her to show the picture - to capture the interesting emotions of the technology savvy guy and a Hindu renouncer!

Location: Varanasi, India - one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities.
