Rooftop Dreams, Varanasi | Head On Photo Festival

Rooftop Dreams, Varanasi

Photographer's Name: 
Yasmin Mund

It was 5:30am and I had just arrived at my guesthouse in Varanasi and instinctively climbed the 7 flights of stairs to see the sunrise over the famous river Ganga. As I looked over the side of the rooftop terrace my jaw dropped in disbelief. Below were mothers, fathers, children, cats, dogs, monkeys all sleeping on the roofs. It was mid-summer in Varanasi and sleeping without AC was difficult. Can you spot the curry?
