Mesmerizing Boatman

Varanasi - life on the ghats

He floats you up and down the Ganga ...
Let's mesmerize with him :

What wonders me most in India,
certainly here in Varanasi
that respires a withered glory,
is the aphaty of the rich
towards 80% of the poor,
hiding himself in his fortress
or fleeing away from it
denying his responsibilty
not aware that
he will have to pay the bill,
hoping that the poor
will maintain their traditions
of believing in their fate,
lucky still having their richness in their heart.

The level of a culture
should be mesured by the way
it takes care of the deprived,
not really by
worldwonders produced by savagism.
The killings by economical wars
still goes on, that's humanity .....

Happy Easter !
