On piety in Kachla

It is a pretty pious place, I have to admit.

I might be too cynical (and too aware of pollution issues) to actually bathe like the woman above, but I have to admit to great beauty.

And when I look across the plains and reflect that people have been praying here for centuries, I also am moved to reflection.

and it is not just humans, apparently this impulse moves monkeys too.

But not mynahs, who seek no more than to lurk in the shade and look for food. And yes, have a rollickin' social time when at it.

and certain surveyors are moved more to Art than contemplation..
