Ganga Aarti Performer

By Kali
Hey folks long time no upload...have been using flickr, but finding it very superficial and pretty much a ritual backslapping exercise.

Anyhow, this was taken last month in Varanasi, he is a performer in a nightly ritual called 'Ganga Aarti' which means loosely 'prayer to the river' .The Ganga River is the Holiest in India, and it is said that should you die there, you will escape the endless cycle of of death and rebirth.
