“The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects.
We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.”
(Charles Baudelaire – French Poet, 1821-1867)

Walking on the ghats along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras) might certainly be the easiest way to be connected to an atmosphere of the marvelous.
No other place in the world compares to this.
I wish Baudelaire came there, his poetry would have been such a masterpiece…
Those buildings standing at Lal ghat are remains of the rich culture of the eternal city and inside each door must open to wonderful dreams…
