Maa Saraswati

IMG_0534-1b

This crowd was slowly making its way forward through the streets of Varanasi, towards the Ganges, following a statue of Maa Saraswati (the goddess of Knowledge & Wisdom), that would be deposited in the holy river. But they were making slow process because there was so much celebrating going on with dancing, fireworks, huge fire poppers and yellow powder being thrown about. At one point the carriage carrying the statue even burst into flames (which was deliberate I’m told!)
