“I put a spell on you.
Lord! Lord! Lord!
….’Cause you’re mine, yeah.
I can’t stand the things that you do
When you’re foolin’ around…”

“Looking back on my life, I sigh.
The caprice of youth goes with the wind, I’ve no regrets.”
(“Rooftop Soliloquy” by Roman Payne)

Sometimes in summer this young man comes to rest for a moment on the stairs of a Vishnu temple which stands under Nepali ghat.
This location allows him to keep on eye on the herd of water buffalos which he is taking care of.
Most of the time he has to jump in the holy waters of the Ganges when the cattle refuses to leave.
I often take some pictures of him and his animals and once in a while he also comes to the akhara nearby where he is training for a short while.
