2013 Ritual Bathers on the steps to the Ganges River in Varanasi at Dawn

India is a land of magnificent contrasts, of the very rich and the very poor, of luxurious palaces and oppressive slums, of ancient customs and modern technology.  The colors are more vibrant; the spices are more aromatic; the experience more exotic than anyplace else in the world.  Religious intensity is evident in the festivals, the temples, and rituals.  Everywhere are smiling welcoming people who are eager to engage with western tourists.  She is a country that will leave you breathless.
