INDIA | Sunday, 30 June 2013 | Views [282]

Benaras is one of the oldest living cities of the World. With time, the city may have changed but at the Ghats, the ethos remains intact. For most Indians, it is a city of mystique and religious fervour. Men, come here after renunciation of all worldly attachments, widows out of piety and pilgrims out of sheer devotion. Geographically too, it is unique. The legendary crescent sweep of the Ganga, is most intriguing while, the reversal of her flow (to south to north) just for Benaras adds a sense of poetic charm.
