An amusing, dramatic and occasionally unsettling 15 minute, 3-character radio play in English (with some words of Hindi). Set in a rowing-boat on the river Ganges at night to a sound-scape of noisy Ghats on the banks of Varanasi in India, two tourists, a husband and wife, he English and she American, pay their respects to Mother Ganga; placing thias in the water, whilst being rowed by a young Hindu, Kali. Their conversation, prickly in parts, reveals their distress about their son Liam, whose last wish was for them to visit Varanasi, and their own attitudes to the Holy City. Dominic and Mandy try to come to terms with the spiritual values of life and death among the Ghats, and the reality of the river water being drunk as refreshment, used for washing and bathing, and as a depository for the dead. Kali sings a rap, frighteningly rocks the boat and loses the oars overboard. He dives in and swims away – leaving Dominic and Mandy alone, drifting downstream together in the dark, in fearful anticipation.
Running time 15 minutes, 54 seconds.
