An Uncommon Beauty

That day was a beautiful winter afternoon, I was sitting at Ahilyabai ghat along the holy waters of the Ganges in Vanarasi (Benaras) and there was a perfect light.

I shot so many pictures then, I felt so lucky to be surounded by amazing people and by innumerable shades of colour.

All this was a source of delights for any photographer.


Everyone was so easy with me and allowed that I took pictures of their intimacy.

Like this lady who was among a group of elder pilgrims.

She was washing a green sari, maybe because she came from far and had to travel with few clothes.

This was before the other picture I took of her where she is praying.

I was under the charm of her ageless and uncommon beauty with the contrast of those natural blond hair and the hue of the face complexion.
