“Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever…”
(Isak Dinesen, pseudonym of Baroness Karen Blixen – Danish Writer, 1885-1962)

This picture was shot at Darbhanga ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
Whenever I walk there the words by Karen Blixen in “Out of Africa” often come to my mind, even though she wrote about a different place, her words are universal and timeless like this old man sitting next to a drawing of Gandhiji.
By chance they look alike so it was easy to see similarities.
It is also tempting to add a few words of the Mahatma to make a link to those mentioned above; “Nearly everything you do is of no importance, but it is important that you do it”…
