Faces of India – 261
Faces of India,
a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here…
You may have seen a cowherd or a shepherd or may be a camel herder too but I bet you would have never seen a deerherd (oops is there a word like that at all?) Seeing the woman the only way I could describe was with this word ‘deerherd’ or ‘deer herder’. She was looking after a group (3 to 4) of deer grazing in the lawns of ashram. I was amazed at her work! The deer would wander off the limits of the lawn so the rope around its neck I was told. This was not a posed pic but an actual scene.
