Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ganga, as the Indians call it, Mother Ganges, the Goddess Ganges is India's holy river.

The Ganges is a gift of Shiva, the god of regeneration, a heavenly river flowing on earth. Bathing in the sacred waters of the Ganges can cleanse one of sin - so devout Hindus believe.

When Jamana Lal's mother died unexpectedly, he and his brother decided to make a 6.000-kilometre pilgrimage from one end of the Ganges to the other for their mother's soul and to cast her ashes into the holy river.

This pilgrimage breathes life into the world of the Hindu faith, the observer is plunged into the fascinating atmosphere of India.
