This house is a reminder of an era when communities came together as one large family to partake in your joys & sorrows. The tree pictured centre frame was planted by mama & her fam-jam, along with a mango tree and several other fruits & vegetables in their garden. Community celebrations, mama’s wedding (right in this garden), my birth, a great many losses; this house has witnessed it all, and stood tall to tell its story, and make new ones. #benares #BHU #varanasi #benaresthroughmymumseyes

A beautiful evening spent on the Ganges with my two favourites, while Benares brought out its very best with a breathtaking sunset and a spectacular Aarti. #sunset #ganges #benares #varanasi #gangaaarti #uptourism

Sin, also called Lassi, with a generous dollop of Rabdi & Malai. (At Pehalwan’s lassi shop) #benares #varanasi #lassi #gluttony #foodcoma #benaresthroughmymumseyes

A beautiful start to the day at Benares, at the heart & soul of the city ❤️ #ghatsofvaranasi #ghats #benaras #sunrise

Mothership was beyond excite when she spotted this small shop selling all kinds of pickles. Obviously, we walked away with over 10 bottles of pickles and a lot more. #benaras #varanasi #pickles #streetshopping #benaresthroughmymumseyes

Each year, the entire city is converted into a huge stage, with different stories from the Ramayan being enacted in different areas. This particular one is on Vali’s death. #varanasi #varanasitourism #ramleela

Mum & I have finally made Benares happen (after planning for over 7 years, rather unsuccessfully). What makes this trip special is that I’m about the same age as mum was when she left this city for good. We’re back again, after all these years to rekindle old (fond) memories, and make a gazillion more. It’s going to be happy next few days. 💛 #benaresthroughmymumseyes #varanasi
