Rishikesh: Lights on the Water

At dusk people go down to the banks of the Ganges to make offerings. We buy little woven baskets of flowers, incense and a candle. In the darkness all you can see is the offerings floating down the fast-moving river. With the evening wind, some of the candles are blown out as they touch the water, or even before. But the ones that last make a magical journey downstream...
