overcrowded boat on the ganges river - hindu pilgrims (varanasi)

Overcrowded river boat on the Ganges river (Varanasi).­

Hindu pilgrims take small boats like this one to cross the Ganges river and reach the beach on the other bank, to do the holy bath (also called holy dip).­

Most of them cannot swim and there are no life jackets on those small boats, so if the boat were to capsize, many would die.­
