13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
The Girl From the West

Thousands of devotees and tourists gathered from every corner of the city in the banks of Dashawamedh Ghat to watch the famous Ganga Aarti.. Some people like me love see the Aarti by sitting in a boat. While watching the Aarti my eyes got caught at a European girl, sitting on the edge of a boat. Her forehead was resplendent with a small mark of vermilion between her eye brows. Her eyes sparkled with a sharp gleam. The power of her eyes mesmerized and I couldn't remove her face from my brain .
