“The oldest living city in the world”.
This is a picture that I shot last Sunday as I was living the Tibetan Temple in Sarnath near Varanasi (Benaras).
The car was along the wall of a house which is just in front of the Temple and I saw this young boy who was doing his homeworks outside in the garden.

The remembrance of my schoolyears came back and I wanted to give to this image a vintage look.
I like the sun coming from the back which gives space between the boy and the background, I think this is what brings that timeless touch to this image.

Education here is different to the one we get in Europe, it would be too long to explain here with a few words but I think that teachers try to allow their pupils to find the real significance of life…

“India is not Just a Place” by Sri Chinmoy:
India is not just a people.
India is the celestial music,
And inside that music
Anybody from any corner of the globe
Can find the real significance of life.
