Remembrance & Confidence
There are people who's remembrance gives light in this world, long after they have passed away.
This light shines in our darkest nights on the road we must follow.”
There is no editing on this picture shot at dawn near Assi ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
The holy waters melted in silver and gold offering a confident sanctuary to this diya (candle) which was carried away towards the rising sun.
In the oldest living city in the world people light up those floating candles for death anniversaries known as "shraadh".
The religious environment made of many cultural influences allows people to become peaceful with death.
This serenity might be one of the greatest gift anyone could ever find in the Eternal city.
The more people remember stronger they become and they can carry on their way in peace and tranquillity...
(This week I am performing shraadh for my parents, this picture is in their memory)
