Jewelry in the Indian desert


no release

"At the time of the Pushkar Mela, during the full moon in November up in Rajasthan there is a big market. Everything is on sale there, equipment the farmers need, gear for the horses, camels, buffaloes, cows, etc. Apart from the huge camel market there, on which some thousands of camels are said to change owners, goods for everyday life is on sale, that's being needed in the dessert Thar.

This young lady got herself some jewelry. From the expression on her face we can tell that she is very happy. "


When Hindus bathe in the Pushkar lake at the time of the full moon, they are said to get rid of their karma. Not only the bad karma but also the good. This means they have the chance to begin at zero and according to their deeds in this life they have the chance to get out of this cycle of rebirths which is their aim. Therefore millions of Indians go on a "mela", a pilgrimage each year.
