Mark Twain described Varanasi as “older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.”  That itself is fascinating.

Propagated to have the answers of the attainment of Dharm, Arth, Kaam and Moksha, this city will show you everything that is there to be seen in a lifetime and then some. Some experiences more surreal than others. None, to be missed. It conjures images of every day life, death, festivals, playtime, community, filth and fertility – all of it shrouded in spirituality.

The city will encompass all your senses. Ranging from the serenity of the river mornings to the chaotic energy of the late evening city. It is a feast. It is an epic. It is getting wet in the rain. It is getting drunk on life.

In its own way, Varanasi is magical.

The collection of photographs herein is a humble attempt at achieving the impossible. The range of emotions that the city will enthuse cannot be captured completely in any medium. My hope is to provoke you enough to take in as much as you can from it and be driven to come to this city. The only promise that the city will offer is that it will force you to look for the profound truth within yourself.

“Curry is a complex combination of spices and herbs where the precise selection of ingredients can vary by region, by religion, or personal preference. In “Varanasi – The curry for mind, body and soul” Vishnu Patro takes us on a delicious journey of exploration illustrating the diversity of colors, people, and locales of Varanasi while visually demonstrating that the best spices are those mixed with a specific  intent and effect in mind.” - Michael Brannick, President and Chief Executive Officer, Prometric

For someone who has never been to this holy city, turning the pages, I was immediately transported into a divine world of prayer, pilgrims, ceremonies and tradition.  The images are confronting and provides an honest depiction of spiritual India. Every page offers a true insight of the everyday experiences in Varanasi. Another amazing masterpiece by Vishnu Patro. - Sumita Ranjini Devadas,Kuala Lumpur

Varanasi brings along a cocktail of experiences, emotions to people who might have visited or heard about this world famous city. Capturing the soul of Varanasi in pictures is a herculean task. Vishnu Patro's artistry is evident from the pictures he has captured which together bring along the essence of Varanasi. His works reflect the eye of an inquisitive traveler seeking to surface the hidden treasures of a city with great history.Vishnu Patro combines craft and experience in the right combination to deliver what can be described as a " Treat to Varanasi". - Gurudutt Ponnathar, Business Consultant, Singapore

Varanasi! I want to go there! I found myself drawn in and captivated by Vishnu's moving photographs. I found myself wanting to go there. I found myself transported to a different world.
Vishnu has used his skill and passion to paint a vast canvass for the viewer. This book will be a fitting coffee table piece and will draw all who open its pages in. Try it for yourself... - Ramesh Nava, Senior Vice President and General Manager, International, Prometric, Kuala Lumpur
