Sancity of holy fire

I spent nights trying to find something that caught the "behind the scene" of Ganga aarti and luckily for me on the second evening itself I had noticed this man adjusting lamp wicks and oil. every evening he is seen doing the same task with a pure calmness on his face and sheer melody in his movement. We know that fire evaporates water but here fire and water come together to form the atmosphere that captures the heart and soul of anyone and everyone who witnesses it.
