DUCKS AT KASHI

The mind wanders and has no boundaries and the posts seem to be moving with my thoughts from one place to another, in free abandon.

Yet I am not crazy as Enchanting memories link the posts  which I share with you.

Spotted this group of Ducks at the Oldest Ghat of Ancient Kashi on the banks of the Holy Ganges.

Harishchandra Ghat is one of the two auspicious locations at Varanasi where cremations take place to date in the quest for freedom from the Life cycle of Birth & Death.

Obviously the Ducks in the picture below are unaware of this as they saunter along the banks of the Ganges River at Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India. ( reading earlier blogs titled BLISS IN KASHI , INVOLUNTARY DIP in KASHI etc would help you pick up the threads and coonect to the location)

HOW ABOUT A DIP IN THE GANGES TODAY?

This Group Reflects on what step to take next as the river seems Vast and the other Shore is Miles away.

“Clean & Pure Ganga” is inscribed in Hindi on the boat below.

I took these pictures while I walked back from Assi Ghat to Dharbhanga Ghat after my INVOLUNTARY DIP ( do read this blog so titled ) in the Ganges.

REFLECTIONS

This Group decides to SunBathe instead of Swim even while the fifth member of the Group is testing the waters down below.

You can see the Duck on the extreme right turn his head and look at the fifth duck of this group who is down below and not visible in the picture.

SUNBATHING TOGETHER

The Featured Image reflects the anxiety of two of the Ducks as they look below at their companion who has parted ways.

Were it not for the INVOLUNTARY DIP and my clothes which were drenched I would perhaps not have walked back and thus missed this Enchanting Group of Ducks at the Harishchandra Ghat in Kashi.
