48 . DRIFTTRAVEL.COM With hundreds of temples, and countless pilgrims coming to Varanasi every day the Flower sellers from nearby cities like Gazipur, Jaunpur, Pratapgarh also come here to buy flowers to be sold in local markets.

Walking on the ghats of Ganga in Kashi is like a looking at a slice of life – where devotion and playfulness co-exist. Here a child offering evening prayer to river Ganga. Varanasi effortlessly blends the new with the old. Tourists jostle with the cows and the pilgrim crowds and most find peace in the most cacophonous environment they are likely to ever find. People in Varanasi prefers to wear white and orange outfits of cotton made. Saffron dress is preferred by religious people and Hindu saints. A thin cotton-made towel (locally called “Gamcha”) is another distinguishing feature of Varanasi people. It is a multi-utility cloth piece which is used in various ways like as handkerchief, towel, turban. Like here a cute kid witnessing the innumerable travelers and devotees gathering and passing-by.
