Possibly the best way to describe a journey to Pushkar is by imagining the emotions of a child on opening a storybook and venturing into a mystical land a land filled with a myriad of colours lining the horizon, with wonders that enthrall, and magic that sets the soul on fire. As the sacred abode of Brahma, the Lord of Creation, Pushkar seems to have captured the very essence of the Hindu God, as nowhere is creation more evident than in this small town of Rajasthan, abuzz with LIFE. The roads leading to this pilgrimage site are overflowing with a sea if people on their way to the fair, along with their families. Red, orange, yellow and other colours of the rainbow flow and ebb like waves, while the undulating forms of hundreds of camels transport you into a bygone era. The festival is alive with the sounds and smells of humanity dance, music, camel races, colourful stalls, the aroma of spices, and so much more. About the Author Raghu Rai has beautifully represented Pushkar in this charming publication, as his exquisite photographs bring forth the uniqueness that is part of India through evocative scenes and moments.
