But this is not my story for PUSHKAR, my story lies around a small boy named SANGEET.
I visited Pushkar last year as well during the Mela. While I was roaming around the families of the Camel herds, I came across this family of 4- A father, A son, An Aunt, and a wife.

Finally I got that photograph and it was...
