“… joy and sorrow are inseparable. . . together they come and when one sits alone with you . . . remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.”
( Kahlil Gibran – Lebanese born American philosophical essayist, novelist and poet. 1883-1931)

Early in the morning I went to Nepali ghat in Varanasi (Benaras) where stand two huge water tanks painted in pink which became a great background in order to take a series of portraits.
Since a few days the Eternal city has to bear unusual cold temperatures and there is a heavy fogg which is covering everything adding a mysterous light to the atmosphere. Any colour is turning into muted shades.
This lady came from far away with a group of pilgrims in order to worship the holy waters of the Ganges.
She was waiting for a boat, she was happy to be there but she wasn’t used to such a weather.
I could see joy and sorrow in her eyes…
