“And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplication, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes.”
(The Holy Bible – Daniel 9:3)

“The oldest living city in the world”.
Those women were sitting on the ghats along river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras).
There are eating “singhara” which is a root found in small seasonal pounds in Uttar Pradesh.
Ladies eat it when they are fasting.
I think that the elder ones took a deep in the holy waters just before I came and this is why her hair are still wet.
They seemed to be happy to be there, looking at them was ticking away the moments that make up a dull day.
