Video of the Week – Gateway to the Ganges

Gateway to the Ganges from Brandon Li on Vimeo.

Today’s Video of the Week has absolutely nothing to do with the Eastern Suburbs, but it is breathtakingly beautiful and given that I just been watching the Indians take on Australia in a one-dayer, I thought I’d stick with the sub-continental feel.

The video takes a look at daily life in the Indian holy cities of Rishikesh, Haridwar, and Devprayag.

This region lies in the foothills of the Himalayas where the Ganges River descends from the mountains.

The creator of this video, Brandon Li, visited not knowing what to expect, and he was both awed and saddened by the experience. The beauty of nature and the Hindu ceremonies contrasted with the poverty and suffering on the streets.

The people he met had a high-spirited resilience that seemed to stem from surviving and maintaining their devotion through a challenging life.
