Home Sweet Home - Rishikesh, originally uploaded by Sanatan.

Unfortunately nobody was home when I took this photograph, but this makeshift home belonged to a local Sadhu or Holy Man living the renounced life. He is obviously like a lot of Sadhus in Rishikesh a devotee of Lord Shiva. There is a photograph left on display in the top right depicting Lord Shiva and his eternal Consort Parvati. I particularly like his Patio (Crazy Pavin').

What you can't tell from this photograph is that this shelter is overlooking the River Ganges at the foothill of the Himalayas. I was standing on the rocky and sandy riverbank taking this photo.
