Kaleidoscope City: A Year in Varanasi

Kaleidoscope City: A Year in Varanasi

Author(s): Piers Moore Ede

Location(s): Varanasi

Genre(s): Travelogue, Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): early 2000s

Piers Moore Ede first fell in love with Varanasi when he passed through it on his way to Nepal. In the decade that followed, it continued to exert its pull on him and so he returned there to live – to discover
what it is that makes the spiritual capital of India so unique.

In this intoxicating city, where funeral pyres smoulder beside the river in which thousands of pilgrims bathe, and holiness and corruption walk side by side, Piers discovers a remarkable interplay between death and life, light and dark.
