Study of Varanasi city has its own image, historicity and cultural identity. Varanasi: the city that is a prayer. On the banks of the river that is almost a faith, the flowing Ganga, stands Hindus' greatest city: Varanasi. For several thousand years, pilgrims have cleansed themselves of their sins here and sought release from the cycle of rebirth. Hinduism, deep and mystical, is perceptible everywhere here: in a decorated doorway, in a glimpse of glittering temple, in the sound of a sacred bell, in the chant of the priests and in the fragrance of flower oblations. The sense and spirit of holiness embedded in Varanasi has attracted mass of population from various sects and religions. For many of the adherents, this is a special place of pilgrimage. In the course of time, people from all parts of India came and settled here to have the experience of that spirit.
The present book is a travel de vivre on the path of population changes and development strategies of the city of Varanasi, a city of contrasts and complexity and self-organised system that converges into a cosmic frame of mosaicness where continuity of traditions and superimpositions of modernity blend in a manner that justifies its name "Banaras" "where juice of life ways always ready to serve". superimposed deeply as mosaic, that is how the city is called "microcosmic India".
