Hindu family taking the Holy Dip in the Ganges river, at the Triveni Ghat in Rishikesh (India), as a floating offering, burning, is drifting drown between them.

Floating offerings are made of a leaf, marigold flowers and other small gifts to the Gods, and have a little candle wick that is lit-up and burns while the offering is floating away on the river.
