ONCE UPON A TIME an unmarried 20 something year old girl ventured off to Jaipur for a weekend of literary bliss with some girlfriends. After spending three days sipping too many sweet masala chai’s and being entrenched in controversial discussions by the likes of Pico Iyer, Shabana and so on, the girl trailed off on her own to go Riding through Romantic Rajasthan for 10 days solo….
Welcome to the Palace of dreams and romance
Watching from the veranda early morning
fetching water for the days chores
visiting the princess’ quarters
Singing with the locals
before the big performance
dance dance dance
taking a mid day break with dadi
dada working away
trouble strewing in the villages..
…getting lost in the sunset
…encounters with strangers in the night
