I took this photo from the top floor of my hotel in Varanasi. When the first day arrived in Varanasi and while waiting for lunch orders, I took a few photos around the hotel. I saw a Hindu priest was sitting on the terrace overlooking the river Ganges his room and read a book in his hand. The distance is far enough so I had to wear a tele lens. With a lively atmosphere by the river Ganges boats that rely on the river and the buildings houses a dense population shows the life of the river Ganges daily.
