This again is a stolen moment. She was making her little son pose for a photographer. The little one wouldn’t just stand still and his mom was continuously cajoling the child to look at the camera. I was in fact more interested in her jewelry. The beaded neck piece and head gear were stunning. They were complimenting her multi colored dress so well. She is a part of Rajasthani dance troupe who are here in Bangalore to perform at an exhibition.
