Deserts

Come November, the eighth century town of Pushkar turns into an unusual combination of the spiritual and temporal. Even as its narrow lanes bustles with groups of pilgrims heading for sacred waters, not far away preparations begin for the world's largest camel fair.

Pushkar lies seven miles from Ajmer in Rajasthan, on the outskirts of the Great Indian Desert, a harsh, hostile and merciless land of creeping sands shifting dunes, erratic weather and hot winds. Its people are in complete contrast to the land they live in, with Pushkar in November forming a showcase for their spirit, their battle for survival against terrible odds.
