POSTCARDS FROM RAJASTHAN



From the hassles and tassels of the urbanized caricatures of Bangalore, I packed my bags to get some cultural shocks and heat waves into my head. The occasion was a cousin’s wedding in Rajasthan. The region of religions, colours, turbans, Rajputas and palaces and many other unique things.

The emcee of my trip was the displeasing temperature of 49 degrees that toasted my nose and put a bright red zit right in the centre of my face (:S). Yeah, that’s the only bad! Nevertheless, it was an exotic experience with a lot of déjà vu, colourful spying and buying couple of more shoes! ;)

Meeting cousins after almost a decade is the reason for the limited glimpses. ^_^

Katputlis and door hangings of birds in color bandhej
Musicians playing Shehnai and tabla in colorful turbans.
Ladies showing off their bright cholis
Rajasthani women adorned with jewels and colorful ghaghra choli in bandhej
The drape blows your sight off
Marigold and roses to make garlands
Typical arches in wooden gates
Decorated Elephant rides
A region of religions.
Milk being boiled in a large Kadaai. 
One of the old buildings- the curvy window- Khidki
Can never get enough of shoes. Beautiful Mojdis and Chappals from Rajasthan

Cheers
