“The oldest living city in the world”.
Those men are walking on Manikarnika Ghat, next to the burning place in Varanasi (Benaras).

They must be villagers who came for the cremation of one of their relatives and they are walking towards Scindia ghat in order to bath in river Ganga according the tradition.

There is no expression on their face, they must be tired or in the process of grieving or bereavement…
I like their garments, those dhotis and shawls which give that timeless touch to this image.
