Travel Varanasi to Dharamsala

by menla108

Any suggestions on travel options from Varanasi to Dharamsala. I would like to save time as i will be running from one program to the other - though i dislike rushing in India.

Some suggested i backtrack to Delhi and take the overnight bus from Majnukatilla. Is there a bus or train from V to D?

There is no bus or train from Varanasi to Dharamshala. Instead you can follow these routes:

Varanasi - Delhi - Chandigarh - Dharamshala OR

Varanasi - Amritsar (by Train) and then to Dharamshala (in bus or taxi)

I dont think You wil get any Bus from Majnu ka Tila

It would be better to get bus from ISBT (Kashmere Gate) Bus stop, or You can get from Cannought place they go Direct Dharmsala, they have nice Volvo busses

have a nice trip

Going to school

by l_joo

Picture is a school and young hopeful students are busy going home after class. The reason I upload this picture was the boat boy that morning told me his father died when he was very young, so he could not read write and had to wash plate at small age until now. Now he can speak simple English and he worked for the hotel in the restaurant for some 3000Rs a month but 1000Rs only after new boss came. So he had to take boat as side income, 200Rs for 2 hours of ride and share 50-50 with boat owner.

People cremation

by Vija_v

After the death Hindu people are getting cremated and it is a big honor to be cremated in Varanasi, as it is a holy place.

As one local told us- everyone is very proud to be born in Varanasi and to die in there.

Near the river there is few places for cremation and actually i was a bit surprised that from all that ceremony people are making kind of show. There is very loud music, a lot of local people who are just watching the burning and many boats with tourists in the river.

So the dead body are getting burned and the quantity of the wood for each person depends on his caste- as higher it is, as more wood u get. So poor ones sometimes maybe burned not proper ;)

All ashes after the fire are thrown into the river and family of the dead are going into the water to do some traditional swimming.
Yes, but there is still some people who are not getting burned, like pregnant women, they get stone around they neck and after they are thrown into the water.

Respecting life in all its forms

by lynnehamman

We were walking back to our hotel late one afternoon, and saw a dead cow, which had fallen off a ghat. Now this is not so unusual, but what stopped us in our tracks was what was happening.....there was a crowd of Hindus, with a priest, and they were having funeral prayers for the cow....and preparing it for cremation. It was bedecked in flowers. This is testament to the faith & respect that Hindus show to all living things.Particuarly cows.

Wall paintings

by illumina

The walls of the ghats and the galis are covered with paintings, many of which are obviously just advertisements for hotels, restaurants and shops, but some are of gods and goddesses, like this beautiful one of Ganga riding a crocodile.
