'Varanasi' is an intimate portrait of a city that defies all definition. The only way to experience it is to immerse in it. At first, it shocks you with its mind boggling congestion and chaos and then it captivates you with its colour and faith. Replete with dogs, goats, and cows who share the stage with priests, holy men, and pilgrims- it makes you want to laugh and cry, stare in awe and look away in dismay all in the same breath.
This book captures a brief glimpse of the soul of Varanasi- a place so surreal that it is like no other on earth.
