Posting his Sentinels

“The man who says his evening prayer is a captain posting his sentinels.

He can sleep.”

(Charles Baudelaire - French poet, 1821–1867)


Was this man posting his sentinels while I was taking a few pictures of this intimate moment where he was praying in front of the holy waters of the Ganges...?

It was at dusk before sunset at a ghat where few people come, not far from Assi.

It seemed that Varanasi (Benaras) was already sleeping, I could only listen to the mantras he was whispering, everything was still, a rare and precious moment in the oldest living city in the world...
