Milosh is still publishing HD videos from his time in India. Here, he has filmed the sacred Ghats of Varanasi from a riverside view on the Ganges. Beautiful. Ancient. Intriguing. A unique spiritual and cultural slice of life for Westerners to see. Haunting flute music, to boot.

The Ghats of Varanasi, along the banks of Ganges River, from Sunrise until the night time ceremony.

Varanasi (Benares) is the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism and Jainism and spiritual capital of India. The city existed at least 3,000 years ago (and possibly much earlier) and according to legend was founded by the god Shiva. The Ganges is a sacred river to Hindus and dying in Varanasi, and being cremated there on the banks of the Ganges is considered to grant instant salvation.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
