The beginning. I have started my Indian Nona Hora project in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. I stayed two days / one night in Thar Desert with a wonderful Rajasthani family. I cannot thank enough Gemar and Mewa for the memories I captured during my stay in their hut. The rides in Gemar’s 1957 Jeep in desert sands, meetings with Bishnoi people, Camel safari in the sunset, sleepless night under deep-black desert sky full of countless falling stars, screeches of wild peacocks before sunrise… will live in my memories forever. Mewa, I would trade any breakfast for a naan you cooked over an open fire that morning! [smile]
Rajasthan (“the land of kings” or “the land of colours”), is the largest state of the Republic of India by area. It encompasses most of the area of the large, inhospitable Great Indian Desert (Thar Desert), which has an edge paralleling the Sutlej-Indus river valley along its border with Pakistan.
