India's most extreme City
Varanasi and the Circle of Life is a story about India's most extreme, chaotic, colourful and intense city. A place where Death is as important as Life. Yes, Varanasi (or Banaras, as the locals call it) is known amongst Hindus as the City of Death and Rebirth in the same manner as Rishikesh is the city of birth. These two cities are connected by the river Ganges, the so called mother of all Indians. The astonishing detail is that, although the city of Rishikesh was built at the start of the Ganges (as the river takes its shape from the streams coming downhill from the Himalayas in north India ) Varanasi was built right in the middle of the path that the Ganges, not at its end in Ganges Delta in Bangladesh.
