A boy and a cow near the holy Ganga river in Rishikesh, India.

I was walking near the bank of the holy Ganga river in Rishikesh when I saw a boy holding what appears to be a pitcher of water. It made for a symbolically important picture as the water of the Ganga is considered to be holy by devout Hindus. The cow (in the foreground) is also worshiped by Hindus.
