    while visiting friends in Sarnath, just outside Varanasi, India, we got up before dawn to hire a rowboat and go out on the Ganges to watch the sunrise activities along the ghats. Soon the sun was up and the ghats were bustling with great crowds of people, but just for this moment there was a tranquility that I have experienced nowhere else.
