Beads, colourful, they come in all the shapes – 
and they make an assorted catalogue in the tiny shops at the ghat-steps of Ganga at Varanasi – 
looking for those appreciating eyes – 
reminiscent of the vibrant ‘Banaras’ culture nurtured by the eternal Ganga – 
the Beads, playing along with the joyful multicoloured reflections of the illuminating Sun rays falling on the waves of the captivating Ganga - 
Have you lived it?

For the call that spiritual flow and cultural tradition of Banaras is - the mystical enigma, a city of paradoxes and a city of salvation – the questions that it answers – the questions that it asks – Banaras fascinates by its carefree lifestyle yet being the seat of eternal spiritual heritage – Banaras confuses by its lyrical spirituality yet practical reality of being a city of ancient wisdom in transition to assimilate the changes the time calls for – a transition that looks lost somewhere.
