To holmertz: Pants
No, but I later saw others that were wearing nothing at all. :-)
Thank you for your kind critique and have a nice day.

I remember seeing a few times a man going around Varanasi completely naked on a black bicycle. Once I saw him chatting with a shop keeper who didn't seem to think there was anything peculiar. Maybe he was a Jain who didn't wear clothes for fear of killing an insect that might get trapped in a pocket or somewhere.

That was probably true. You may remember the story of a Jain I met in the mountains over Pokhara? He was wearing a (short) down jacket as it was cold, but nothing below the waist...

Hi Kasia and Gert,

The followers of the sect Digambara (literally “dressed with the wind”) –practise extreme asceticism. It is a major branch of Jainism.

See here near the temple in Delhi (unsharp, but one can see)

Best regards MAlgo

Thanks Malgo.
It's sharp enough. :-) I can understand that it works when it's warm. But in cold weather??
Best wishes
