  • A five minutes ambling from Assi Ghat will bring you to this modest but cozy dwelling called Ganges View Guest House, at a stone’s throw from the Ravi Daspark.

    The proprietor is an ordinary boatman (Popularly known as Nishad or Majhi) who is also an active social worker. Not only ferrying the people from ghat to ghat (River Banks) but also the habit of rescuing the drowning people as well as extracting the drowned bodies has been a patrimonial duty passed on to him as the present link from generation to generation. In Varanasi which is theoretically an area between Varuna and Assi, his boat sails from the Assi ghat. His grandfather Sambhu Majhi ws widely famous as a proficient diver in the river. People in the entire Purvanchal know him for having rescued hundreds of drowning men. They used to ferry people on boats from the time even he has no account of. Banaras is a city twice older than history and mythology put together. So is the past of Ganga and the people who lead their lives on Ganga, among whom the family of Birendra Nishad is one. Literally, he has passed the lion’s share of his life on the pious river Ganga where the ashes of elder after death, are also dissolved. Puri Sankaracharya even went to the extene of calling him Gangaputra the son of Ganga.
