Photographer's Note

From the village of Ludiya, midway between Bhuj and Khavda in the northern Kutchch... a relatively prosperous Meghwal hamlet with a vivid textile tradition and the classic painted round houses.

Being closer to Bhuj than the to Pakistani border, these Meghwals or 'Harijans' (as Gandhi once called them), have availed themselves of the fiscal fruits of tourism. They ply a decent living from the selling of textile crafts to the shops in Bhuj and to those tourists who wander their way - very hospitable and endearing people. I stayed two nights here with this family - enough time for them to slowly relax around the camera.

ISO at 400 and focal length at 43.00mm.
