Grounded in the Ganges

This is a simple scene, but telling. The barefoot boatmen wade through the detritus on the river bank. A string of beads lies in the water, maybe carried downstream from the funeral ghats just up river. The decaying brickwork and the old boat showing that entropy is having its way.

A scene on the river Ganges, The Ganga, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India.
