This day also went by with seeing the above mentioned places and we had a great time. We relished some amazing Rajasthani cuisine with Ker-sangri, Gatte ki Sabji and Rajasthani Dum Aloo, to name a few dishes. The sun was shining brightly over us but the wind was amazing and cool. It swept my hair and touched my face like nothing I had ever experienced before. Jaisalmer experiences minimum rainfall in India and this year till the time I went there, the city had got only half an hour of proper rainfall. I just could not imagine the difficulty of life in there.
Yet the people were content with their lives. They are so helpful and generous and even selfless. I had an experience myself when during the sightseeing, thanks to google maps, we got lost and reached those windmill farms. There was no one to be seen around and there were no roads. And at that point a driver was passing by in this car and he was accompanying an engineer. They guided us to get out of that farm and went with us till we reached the highway which was apparently 8 kms away.
The guy gave us his number and asked us to call him up if we face any other problem. These things do not happen often and his generosity made a so full of happiness that these traits still exist in humans today.
One more thing that moved me was that the people are happy with their life. They wave and give you a very nice smile when you pass by and when I acknowledged them by waving back, their smile widened. There were so many children around who were just happy with our presence. There were people who did not move to the city and still stayed at extremely unfair and bad conditions with no facilities just because they were emotionally attached to their ancestral land. But still they do not have any regrets or any problem with their way of living. They have adapted to that life and do not want to change it.
I saw so many things in this trip that I felt that I am very lucky for what I have today. I learnt that small things give such happiness that it is more than any materialistic thing, like this article. The old world charm of Rajasthan is something to look forward to. This trip holds a very special place in my heart and it will remain there forever.
Now my next trip to Rajasthan would be to Pushkar for the Pushkar Mela. It is the world’s largest cattle exchange and trading fair where you can see the best of Rajasthan’s culture and tradition at one place. The fair is so beautiful and especially so vividly colourful that someone would fall in love with the colours. This has been in my bucket list since a long time and I hope to get it ticked off this year.
