Who am I? Kumaoni or Nepali! 🤔 . Many of you do not know this, but I come from the mountains and belong to a rather small hill community called ‘Kumaoni’. . In Nepal after extensive discussions with experts, it was eventually decided that I am actually a Nepali as #Kumaon once used to be a part of #Nepal! . Excited to belong to two countries at the same time 😉
Regranned from @thrumyeye.s - This white marbled architecture is a memorial site of a Rajput clan. This cenotaph was built in the 19th century by Maharaja Sardar Singh in the memory of his father, Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, the 33rd Rathore ruler of Jodhpur.
We all are storyteller here, some prefer to pen it down, others show it visually.
I met this man, a real storyteller.
Under burning sun of Jaisalmer, he recites with love and perfection the story of Kuldhara.
Lazing around here in Kuldhara I wanted to hear the drama. Locals here suggested to wait for half an hour as this man who recites the sacrifice of Kuldhara was taking a bath.
It was noon time, I've got plenty of time. Nothing to hurry for, decided to sit under the entry point of the village.
Dimmed white kurta, safa and long white beard, to sum up his look. After a little request he agreed to recite the whole story. Occasionally taking pause and reminding 'अपने भाषा में बोलता हूँ, आप समझाणा'. I put the phone recorder on, recorded the whole story. Even today sometime I listen patiently to his voice, birds and cars.
I learned the joy of story telling from him!
And that's what I'm trying to do these days here on Instagram!
