Stolen Serenity Of Varanasi

What can be said about a city that is older than legend itself? Chaotic yet serene, Varanasi is one of the oldest and the most continuously populated cities in the world. A city full of people brought up amid a cacophony of ancient history, myths and religion. A city where God is a constant companion of its inhabitants. From the flower lady engrossed in making beautiful garlands, to the numerous sadhus of different hues, to pilgrims seeking redemption, to the people who find worship in work or even wrestling… everyone in this city seems to have their own version of godliness, to be on their own quest for meaning.

And while religion and worship are evident everywhere in Varanasi, it’s the little glimpses, swirls and pieces that you find in a passerby’s eyes or a stranger’s smile, a random conversation or a trader’s flowers that will leave you feeling slightly changed and slightly more serene than the person who arrived.
