A Village Scene in Pushkar, Rajasthan
Submitted: Jul 25, '09
Great Travel Moment
I have been chasing my dream of going to India since my university days and when I finally got there I was amazed. It was love at first sight. The amazing transformation of the Indian landscape is really a sight to behold! From the green hues of Kerala, to the beaches of Goa, to the concrete jungle of Mumbai, and now to the forbidding desert panorama of Rajasthan. Against this stark landscape, the women of the village of Pushkar look vibrant and colorful in their multi-colored sarees draped around them. As a Hindu state, cows can be seen lying around or walking about the village or even loitering around the Holy Ghats at the Pushkar Lake. This juxtaposition of religiosity and everyday life is what makes India so exotically vivid in my imagination years after my travel. Such is the magic of India.
