Travelogue –Benaras

Have you ever been to a place where death is respected more than birth? A place where people go to die? A place where people go to ask for a painless, spiritual death?

Benaras is just that place. On the banks of river Ganges, it has over a million visitors every year, who come to experience the spiritual, pious place. Ganges is considered a goddess’; a mother who feeds all those who go to her. Offering oblations (respects) to a family’s ancestors is considered as the highest religious act, in Benaras.

We had been there last week for offer oblations to our ancestors.
