People Soaking In The Hooghly River

People soaking in river

People were washing their body

Shot in Kolkata, India.

The wide river was flowing. When I saw rivers, I often asked the name to the locals because I wanted to know. Then, the locals often give 'The Ganga River' as the answer. I thought the locals made irresponsible comments or all the rivers flowing in this countries were Ganges.

When I came to the riverbank of the Hooghly River, I saw many people soaking in the water. They were just having a bath in the river. The place was used as a water place for them. Yet I found some men fishing at the same time. The place seemed to be also a fishing place. I was hopelessly confused.
