                         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
Welcome to the Palace of dreams and romance
Watching from the veranda
Watching from the veranda early morning
fetching water
fetching water for the days chores
The famous Amer Fort
visiting the princess’ quarters
Hanging out the Udaipur villages with the locals
Singing with the locals
local rajasthani dancer before her performance
before the big performance
dance dance dance
dance dance dance
taking a mid day break with dadi
taking a mid day break with dadi
hand woven scarves
dada working away
the locals acting out a drama
trouble strewing in the villages..
...always beautiful
…getting lost in the sunset
encounters with strangers
…encounters with strangers in the night
