Above Manikarnika.

Above Manikarnika. From Bashkar's room, you can smell the human flesh and hair burning from the cremation ghat right down below. Time never stops, always running ahead. He told me: "The only constant is change, impermanence, Anitya in sanskrit! Unless you stop moving, within your body and within your thoughts". And this, Bashkar can't forget of course, the bodies arriving down there every ten minutes, days and nights, are his life and death, constant, reminders.
