“Life has no meaning unless one lives it with a will, at least to the limit of one’s will.
Virtue, good, evil are nothing but words, unless one takes them apart in order to build something with them; they do not win their true meaning until one knows how to apply them.”
(Paul Gauguin – French Post-Impressionist artist, 848–1903)
Those ladies took a bath in the holy waters of the Ganges at Tulsi ghat in Varanasi (Benaras).
They were echoing those Tahitian Women painted by Gauguin.
Revealing feminine nudity is very uneasy in the oldest living city in the world where it is still strictly taboo.
As I respect the Banarasi culture I always make sure that we can’t see faces, nor anything which could be taken as a lack of dignity.
