Photographer's Note

Camel, the indispensable ship of the desert doing her best to look sexy perhaps while keeping her distance as if watching all those children intently. A simple 'street photography' taken at The Camel Festival, and stealing a moment can be fun as depicted here when I spotted this opportunity within the vast Thar desert, 30 km from Bikaner desert town.


Camels are important in Rajasthan's daily life and at most festivals, fairs and weddings, people pay tribute to their importance by decking out their camels in colorful ornamental harness and accutrement etc. This tradition of celebrating the camel still plays an integral role in the lives of the masses in Rajashthan. This animal is most admired among all the animal species and inseparable from Rajasthanis daily life, and is considered the pride of the place.
