This old man, coming back from his daily routine of washing into the Ganges river, is bringing back home a bucket full of the holy water.
On the journey back home from the Ganges, devotees carry small quantities of river water with them for use in rituals. This water is also considered very pure (hummm not...). Don't even think about drinking any.
Varanasi is the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism.It is certainly one of the most uncommon and amazing places on earth to witness devotion and experience a complete clash of culture.
