“In order to live a fully human life we require not only control of our bodies (though control is a prerequisite); we must touch the unity and resonance of our physicality, our bond with the natural order, the corporeal grounds of our intelligence.” (Adrienne Rich) This was shot from a little terrace which is at the corner of Nepali ghat from where several priests do a daily ritual. This young man is one of them, every evening he fills a big metallic vase with the holy waters of the Ganges and climbs a staircase which leads at the top of the ghat in order to perform a water- pouring ritual in a sacred well surrounded by five temples.
