    Your blog was so much fun to read! And very helpful in the eve of our trip to Varanasi! I found your descriptions and point of views very refreshing, probably similar to what we will live there as tourists and not navigated ascetics like most of bloggers seems be :))))))

    • Thanks so much for such a lovely comment. How exciting that you’re heading to Varanasi. how long are you staying for? Ha yes I think I peaked when I stood in the ‘landmine’ and ruined my shoe, that’s definitely not influencer behaviour! I’m super jealous that you’ll get to try Blue Lassi, it’s such a great place 🙂

    I enjoyed reading your blog. Each and every nuance is so beautiful described. I also loved how you have mentioned about the Dos and Don’t s so aesthetically, clearly calling out the sentiments and the beauty of the place.. I found that so thoughtful.. Will soon be going to Varnasi and will definitely want to try the Blue Lassi place..

    • Thanks so much for such a kind comment. It is a beautiful place and it’s hard to do it justice, we can all buy try.

      I hope you enjoy your trip and visit to Blue Lassi, the biggest decision you will make will be what to order 🙂

    Very well written, this really helps especially when one is visiting for the first time.

    Well written article.! Usually the pilgrims who are aware of the pollution in Ganges cross the river by boat and take the dip in clear water away from river banks. It can be life threatening at times if the polluted water allowed to enter our breathing or digestive tract.

    Probably the ‘orange top’ variety in Blue Lassi shop you don’t recollect, is Saffron..an expensive food flavour.

    Yes, I do plan to visit Varanasi in July 2023. Not sure how the weather will be but I’ll have only 3-4 days and wondering what to cover in terms of sight seeing and food and shopping there?

    • We were only there for three nights, two days, if I recall correctly. It’s not that big so that should be plenty of time. I would definitely try and do a boat trip along the river – sunrise and sunset are great for different reasons.

    Very well written. I visited it last week. I didn’t see any floating dead bodies, thankfully! But even as a Hindu I felt Manikarnika was very intense.
