Colours. Warm, throbbing, soothing and unadulterated. Unapologetic. That is Rajasthan for me. Unapologetic in their love for colour, in their love for their heritage and in their pride in the past. From the senior most octogenarian to the youngest dude from gen next, what is all pervading is a very definite eagerness to explain the glorious heritage and where they come from. Affectionate greetings from street corners, spontaneous conversations, palaces, forts, art on every conceivable surface and the omnipresent Jharokha is what will remain synonymous with this trip. My camera hardly remained idle & in the coming many posts I will share with you the many places we went, interesting restaurants, hotels & shopping information.
But for now here is a quick glimpse of the colour that is Rajasthan.
I just LOVED this red phone that I've seen a million times in my city but which suddenly looked so retro & romantic in Rajasthan
