A local laundry has a busy day at Varanasi. The river does not look too clean to wash the sheets and so many pairs of trousers.
Just another day in India's holiest city.

Excellent capture from the river boat.......I have even seen boatmen drinking from the Ganges without any filtration. Just to think that there are 2 cremation ghats along the western banks of the River Ganges, namely the Manikarnika (larger one downstream) and Harishchandra (smaller one upstream) Ghats & it was estimated that at least 80 dead bodies were cremated daily on these 2 ghats & their ashes & wood piles were pushed into the river for the purification of the dead.
