“Rummaging in our souls, we often dig up something that ought to have lain there unnoticed.”
(From “Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy)

Those men are ship carpenters working all day along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).

“You will see your life for what it really is: a small blip on the canvas of eternity.
And you will come to see clearly who you are and the ultimate purpose of your life.”
“Which is?”
“To serve, of course.”
(From “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” by Robin Sharma)

This is a picture of Anand’s brother who is a ship carpenter along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
Like his father his work is to fabricate, assemble, install and repair wooden boats which will never leave the shores of the Eternal city.
