“When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that, in truth, you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
(Khalil Gibran – Lebanese American artist, poet, and writer, 1883–1931)

This was shot recently on a Sunday evening when a few people came to find some freshness along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
I don’t know this young man, I could feel a kind of melancholy around him.
I did several pictures, he smiled at me but his smile was expressing sorrow, maybe it was just the heat which had an influence on the emotions.
