Below, the moon was already dancing across the waters of the Ganges. Ahead, a smattering of isolated villages– split apart by long stretches of nature– was illuminated only by our car lights. Suddenly, something moved, so quickly, from the bushes. It was a human form. Then appeared another one, just thirty seconds later. I asked the driver to stop the car. As my eyes adjusted, I...
