Road to Pushkar


My trip last year to India revolved around November.

Each November, at the time of the Kartik Purnima full moon, the Pushkar Camel Fair is held.

It is without doubt one of India’s most highly-rated travel experiences, a spectacle on an epic scale, attracting 300,000 people and up to 20,000 camels, cattle and horses.

The roads along the way are lined with people, camels, horses, donkeys and of course Brahma.

The animals are lively and often bring a smile to your face but it was the faces of the people who touched me profoundly.

It is not atypical to see women carrying food or goods on their heads while managing to keep their young ones close to them.

The women are always immacuately dressed in splendidly colorful saris with matching adorning veils.

I loved this image for the juxtaposition of the woman and child, and their surrounds
