Photographer's Note

On the Ganges, in the morning, in Varanasi...Ganges gives water to more than third part of indian population. Ganges River has been considered one of the dirtiest rivers in the world. 400 million people live close to the river. The commercial exploitation of the river has risen in proportion to the rise of population.

As it flows through highly populous areas the Ganges collects large amounts of human pollutants such as d faecal coliforms. Drinking and bathing in its waters therefore carries a high risk of infection. "Our captain" you can see on this pic regularly desaltered himself with water from Ganges during our trip...
