Bagmati Dreams

by Tom

Bagmati River

Bagmati River

He’d met me in a dream the night before. I couldn’t remember. I must have been asleep. He recognized the long plait down my back and the dragon tattoo up my leg. His long orange robe, wispy beard and waist-length dreadlocks piled up high on his head, all seemed strangely familiar – like we’d met once before, a long time ago.


We wandered all day, through the streets, mud and temples of enchanted Kathmandu. While meandering along the banks of the Bagmati, young boys pushed the smouldering remains of their immolated relatives, from the crumbling stone burial pyres, into the filthy slow brown river. The remains now departed, they dived in, head first, submerging themselves in the effluent and ashes. Seconds later, their glistening heads emerged, alive and still laughing, defiant of the death and disease that was slowly swirling around their small brown bodies.

They fed him on bananas as they thought him to be holy. He’d surrendered this world, for the spirit, so street sellers seemed willing for this small sacrifice. It wasn’t that much but it would keep him alive.

I’m sure that we spoke of so much and so many but it all seems so long ago now. Once vivid, it flows slowly away like a dream.
