On the move. Pushkar

The women are all in the camel chariot, ready to move, just waiting for the evening and his coolness. They have a three days way to go back in their village.

Finally, she became the star of the shooting...

After the puja and bath in the holy lake, women like to spend time in the fair and buy some little things to enhance their beauty; universal occupation, I guess.
