“Whenever the mind unsteady and restless strays away from the spirit, let him ever and for ever lead it again to the spirit”.
(from the Bhagavad Gita)

This is one more picture shot at the flower market which is located in the chowk of Varanasi (Benaras).
I always enjoy the light there which enhance the colours of any fabric and magnifies the skin shades of the people who come in this courtyard.
This place is magical with all the scents of mixed fragrances coming from the flowers.
That afternoon was very hot, people looked tired.
This boy came from the house and stood under the sunlight for a short while, then he was sweating.
His mind seemed to be somewhere else, I took a few closed-up until I realized that his arm against the wall was making a nice composition.
I had the time to step back and to take this picture.
