This was too fun to walk away from. We saw many others at the river’s edge. My friend and I each bought a candle and flowers. This little girl and a slightly older boy who was with her walked down to the holy river with us as our guides. We blessed each member of our family, following her instructions and sent our candle-flower petal float off with a blessing into the Ganga. We thanked her and she responded with a giggle and ran off with the boy to find their next customers.
