Faces of India – 291

Faces of India

a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. I bring back memories of places I visit and things I see and also the souvenirs. So why not the conversations and memories of people I meet! I started this series in March 2011. See more here


He is the village headman of a village in Jaisalmer. Village headmen are powerful and most respected person in their villages. He hosted us in his house, which was one of the unique dining destination set by Suryagarh Resort, with high tea. When it comes to hospitality Rajasthan people are unbeatable. This headman gave us company through out our stay in his little abode with a kind of supervising look. I wasn’t able to decide his moustache was more impressive or his kind supervision. May be both!

  4. When it comes to hospitality, Rajasthani people are unbeatable. Said right Indrani Ji. Myself too being a Rajasthani, would like to become the host for yourself and your family some day in my life.
