Photographer's Note

I took this picture of a decorated earthen pot (called "Kalash") at an engagement ceremony in a small town in Rajasthan. The vibrant colors of the pot were contrasting beautifully against the subtle white surroundings.

It is very common in this region to use decorated pots in ceremonies. As you might have noticed, the pot is placed on wheat grains, Rice grains are also visible near bottom of the picture. Grains are regarded very auspecious on such occasions.
