I found myself sitting opposit this couple, who were returning from a pilgrimage. As per custom they walked for days, to visit their temple. I watched as they lay exhausted, on the bench of the train. I was amazed to see the wife balance the earthen pitcher on her hip. It contained the precious holy water from the temple. My station came and I disembarked. I wondered which small village was their home.
