July 4: Blessings for You – Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India

17 Jul

It was taken early one morning in Varanasi. The boy seemed so “above” all the other children – he told me he’s Brahman (the highest caste) and that he would be able to bless me. The 2 other young children I was wandering around with were quite quiet and respectful of him. It was interesting.

Women – Delhi, India

18 Jun

Sometimes it is true that a picture can paint a thousand words. This week’s photo challenge: A Split-Second Story, inspired me to dig deep throughout my vast archive of photographs, each one telling a story of a certain place and time. In my opinion, there is no place on earth that a simple photo can tell so much about a place than India.

India, one of the most populous countries on the earth, is full of color, contradiction, glory and pain. It is a place of wonder, sorrow, fear and hope. India bursts with humanity on every street or corner you pass. You can see it all there – poverty, wealth, good, bad, happy, sad, beauty and tragedy.

Behind the beautiful, lavish parts of India always lies the most abject poverty imaginable. Nothing can prepare you for the stark reality of desperation, misery and despair of walking through a real live slum in the heart of India’s capital. Sometimes the most severe poverty is hidden behind the walls and within the confines of a slum. Other times, it stares right back at you like a hard slap across your face. You try to look away, and ignore the creeping, uncomfortable nagging guilt. But you can’t.

I took the metro, and then an auto-rickshaw home (in Gurgaon, India), and we were stuck in a jam (as usual). This lady’s bright, red toenail caught my eye… It did stand out, you know..

Varanasi, Utter Pradesh, India

27 Mar

Arriving to Varanasi:-

I have heard this place was magical, I have heard this place change people’s minds and shakes preconceptions on human behaviors and customs. Once while talking with Glisia, we were planning to visit this place together but unfortunately it couldn’t be possible for different reasons.

Mark visited me a couple weeks ago. An English guy which plan is to travel all india, including Varanasi. Meeting Mark made me understand that being a Solo traveller sometimes is better than traveling with a big pain-in-the-ass group. He taught me the importance of being alone and to enjoy moments and experiences on your own, dealing yourself in different places and situations allows you to grow up and solve problems by your own, going to an unknown place without the help from anyone, getting to manage the uncontrollable things that might happen while traveling is something I have discover in India and something I feel proud myself about: I am still learning but I can say: “I can do it, and it feels great, there’s a little bit of scared on it but stills it feels good”. I am glad I met this guy. He gave me some good lessons that I think I will use for the rest of my life.

With the plan in my mind to go to another country and realizing this place could be a stop during my journey I decided to make it a reality. I would stop in Varanasi for two days on my way to Nepal (A story that I will tell you about in future posts). The whole planning took me a week, where I would go, where I would sleep, which sights I was interested in, how much history these places have, etc.
