Anywhere, anytime! There are flurries of activities in every nook and by-lane of Varanasi. Fabled as the oldest city of India, throngs of devotees, backpackers, visitors are milling through the city every minute of every hour. The city never sleeps, even the dead is ritually sent to the afterlife. Men and beasts often end up in shaded alleyways to nap away their past and wake up to a new hour.
