Picture of the Day - April 16

This photo was taken just south of Assi ghat towards Ravidas ghat.  The Yadav people group are in charge of water buffalo which you can see walking in the distance.  In the foreground, people hang their clothes and possessions on stacked bricks.  In the middle of the photo are neatly stacked water buffalo patties drying in the sun.  These patties are used as fuel for cooking.  All over Varanasi these patties are made and sold.  Click here to read up on cow/buffalo dung and its preparation!
