Its still quite vivid in memory, where most
of these photos were taken. 
The Pushkar mela in Rajasthan was the most amazing 
event I'd seen till then. (about '71 or '72)

have always wondered about the story here

its a yearly fair/mela, fabulously colourful 

its possible to know where they come from 
by their clothes

possibly a lot more sophisticated now,
