On our travels around India we spent a few days in the town of Varanasi, said to be of particular importance to the Hindu people because the holy river Ganges flows right past it. Stone steps lead down to the river and at any time of the day you will find people bathing and working on the river.
Ganges Clothesline – To many people living on the banks of the river Ganges, and probably all the other rivers too, the river is everything. They drink it, bathe in it, use it for transport and, all day long, they wash clothes in it. Leading down to the edge of the river are ancient stone steps called ghats, and some of them, like the one in this photograph, are used primarily for doing the laundry.
