India is a mystic land. In 21st century India, the new and the old, the agnostic and the spiritual, all co-exist. And no city exhibits this more succinctly than Varanasi, the seat of Lord Vishwanath of Kashi.
I was travelling in an autorickshaw. The driver stopped at a roadside shrine for a few seconds, possibly to offer some money as gift. I took out my phone and snapped a few pics, one after the other. Here’s the one that I felt had come out the best.
Different deities in the Hindu religion are offered different things – fruits, wine, even cigarettes. Ostensibly, devotees tie bells at this shrine.
I apologise to you, my dear reader, for having skipped the Mundane Monday Challenge for so long. It feels great to be doing it again.
