Held in early November in the beautiful Rajasthani town of Pushkar, this famous fair could almost be described as a Kumbh Mela of camels and cattle. Around 50,000 slobbering beasts dressed in their finest ‘coats’ come to town accompanied by thousands of pilgrims and traders, but with masses of musicians, acrobats, and mystics there’s more than just ships of the desert to this fair.
Rutavi Mehta shares the ‘katha’ behind every picture she takes during her travels. She’s taking a sabbatical from corporate life to explore cultures, places and emotions around the world. Her eagerness to travel has also nudged her to become a biker so that she can reach places others can’t. More about her on www.photokatha.in.
