In life we sometimes meet great people doing marvellous things. Mr Sharma is one of those. Single handled he has created a folk museum, with items, as he says, ‘other people discard, I preserve”.
His career as a teacher forged his passion for protecting the rich culture of Rajesthan, supporting artists and housing his collection in a purpose built museum.
In the following videos you ll witness puppets and music, showcasing this expertise. And the shaky camera? That was my friend Colette, dancing in her seat.
It’s uncanny how the puppeteer using only slight hand control can capture the dancers movements. And can you see the influence of Punch and Judy?
Trio Restaurant was our destination for the trio of friends to share supper. And what else do you do while waiting? Learn to count in Hindi
After a very long, prolonged unexpected early arrival in Jaisalmer we found out way to Fort View Restaurant. It was time to meet Ali.
A desert man, now running a restaurant in town, with one of the most beautiful views of the fort, we met with smiles, hugs and heartfelt love for friends.
We met Rebecca, Ali s wife, Salem his nephew, Kamal his brother. Another home from home. We truly had arrived in Jaisalmer.
Over the last few months I’ve been suffering. Feeling itchy and hot, scratching and creating scars. Thankfully with my Weleda products I have not suffered so much however now in the heat of India I wonder, is it menopausal or just the heat of the location.
After blood tests the Doctor thinks I am post and menopausal, and I am rejecting the topical creams given as a preventative measure without justification. There is no clear cause of my itchy symptoms yet they want to prescribe as the advice for an allopathic solution. Instead I watch my diet, keeping hydrated and support myself with herbal remedies and beautiful body oils and creams.
Just now I thought, here we go again, another hot flush. No. The power has gone to save energy for the Diwali festivities in the next few days and the fan has stopped cooling us.
It’s good to identify the possible causes and acknowledge the solution may be other than that which we are being asked to believe will be a cure.
