Photographer's Note

A sadhu trying to make a few bucks by amusing the crowd at the 'Tarnetar Fair'.

The most famous fair in Gujarat is undoubtedly the Tarnetar Fair. The Tarnetar fair is visited by more than 50,000 people from all over the State, country and abroad.

The Tarnetar Fair is a "Lokmela" (people's fair)in its true sense. The principal attraction of this fair is the spontaneous folk music and folk dances of the Saurashtra region. There are many tattoo(chhundana) artists and barbers, magicians and madaris. Merry-go-round, circus, photography studios are some of the modern attractions. More than two hundred women perform Garba in a sing circule on the thrillng beats of four drums at a time and to the heart filling tunes of the jodiya pavas (the double flutes).
