“We are alone, absolutely alone on this chance planet; and amid all the forms of life that surround us, not one, excepting the dog has made an alliance with us.”
(Max Depree – American businessman and writer, b.1924)
On a cold afternoon of winter, this man was walking near Manikarnika ghat in Varanasi (Benaras).
I took this picture when he came under the balcony of a Shiva mandir (temple) where I often spend some time.
He was eating something wrapped in a newspaper and a dog was following him so he stopped and shared his food with this unexpected companion.
