This is a journey through various people in and around Varanasi ghats.

We can start our journey visiting an old lady who runs a shop in one of the narrow streets of Varanasi.

There are more shops and shopkeepers in whichever turn you take in that narrow labyrinth. Some of the people from that labyrinth are showing their faces now.

But what is the use of shops if there are no one to buy things. Customers are needed! The customers come in all sizes, shapes, colours and ages.

All of these people are walking through the street where the local people are living and make a living.

Some of them has amazingly narrow parking spaces

And they also have houses at the end of such narrow lanes

These locals or vendors are not the people who mainly run the economy here. That would be the Devotees. Those devotees also come in all sizes and shapes like the other group of people.

But then there is one another set of people to whom Varanasi is really home. The Sadhus! Without Sadhus, Varanasi is nothing. Many different kinds of sadhus are there, walking around in Banaras.

Most of them would be walking around

Most of them would be simply walking around

Walking like this through ghats

Walking like this, through the ghats

Some might just walk around

Some might just walk around looking for answers

But some might ask for alms

But some might ask for alms as well

Some might eat their own food

Some might cook and eat their own food

The some might sleep their way off

Then some might just sleep almost all day long

This last picture would give you an overall idea about the place that Varanasi is, minus the Sadhus. You can see the street vendors, tourists, cows, locals, kids and maybe a sadhu just around the corner.
