Rajasthan is the largest state in India. It comprises 10% of the total land and is located in northern India where it almost entirely overlaps with the Thar Desert. Because of its location in the Thar desert much of Rajasthan is uninhabitable, however, it still remains the most culturally stimulated state in India. This includes their creative meals as a result of a lack of water, buoyant religious festivals, extraordinary wildlife including three national tigers, shopping, exuberant festivals and most notably the jubilant colors the Rajasthani people use in their daily lives. Because of their prevalent culture Rajasthan’s main export is art including handicraft items and varied prints. The home captured in this post represents the type of ebullient culture found throughout the state. Two out of the three most common colors -- blue and orange -- are seen in this image (yellow is the third color). Rajasthan is home to such spirited people and culture because of its 5000 year old history combined with its location in northern India and its diverse population of people from all castes. The Rajasthani people thrive on these circumstances. They are an open armed, welcoming community which creates a wonderful environment for people, especially women, to travel alone!
