“It doesn’t matter if the water is cold or warm if you’re going to have to wade through it anyway.”
(Teilhard de Chardin – French Geologist, Priest, Philosopher and Mystic, 1881-1955)

This picture was shot a few hours ago at Ram ghat in Varanasi (Benaras) where the city has to bear the lowest temperature of the year since a few days.
This young man is braving the cold in order to take his ritual bath in the holy waters of the Ganges.
Nights couldn’t be colder and it seems difficult for the city to wake up every morning.
In a few days everyone here will forget this unusual weather when the heat comes again in the city of all excess…
