A 20x30 oil painting, done on linen. A Sadhu seen at the holy Manikarnika Burning Ghat in Varanasi where bodies are cremated at all hours of day and night. In Hinduism, death is considered as a gateway to another life marked by the results of one's karma. It is believed that a dead human's soul attains moksha, and hence breaks the cycle of rebirth when cremated here. Thus, scores of the elderly across the whole country seek to walk up to its edges, and spend their last days absorbing the charisma of the ghat making death painless and insignificant to be pondered upon.Original painting available.
