Baan – The Holy Wave
BOARDS & BIKES — 04/05/2015 — by Christian H.
A megalopolis, Kolkata. A river, the Hooghly, a tributary of the Ganges River where cross cargo ships, fishing boats and sacred funeral processions. The stage is set. Monthly full moon, the river is the scene of an extreme and exceptional phenomenon. He is known there, Sara Sari’r Baan … It is a wave several meters high that bar across the width of the river and that goes back over several tens of kilometers inland. A wave from the ocean, caused by the meeting of the tide and current down the river. A pure manifestation of nature, wild and mysterious, as yet rarely seen today.
