The annual Mahindra Kabira festival paid a magnificent ode to Kabir as the historic ghats of the Ganga lit up with floating candles and the Banaras air was filled with mysticism and music

Amid all the chaos of political activity in election-bound Uttar Pradesh, calm descended on the world's oldest city of Varanasi.

The historic ghats of the Ganga were immersed in soulful music and nostalgia as Kashi celebrated its true Fakir this past weekend.

The annual Mahindra Kabira festival paid a magnificent ode to Kabir as the historic ghats of the Ganga lit up with floating candles and the Banaras air was filled with music.

In difficult times of pandemic, a Khyal performance by Pandit Anoop Mishra, classical sets by the Anirudh Varma Collective and folks songs by Jumma Khan, among a host of other artists, ignited hope amid distress.
