Aparna Mohindra sharing Travel Photographs from enigmatic little town in Rajasthan - Pushkar

Hundreds of herders descend upon Pushkar in the state of Rajasthan for the five-day annual camel and livestock fair. The Pushkar Fair, also known as the Pushkar ka Mela, is held on the banks of Pushkar Lake every November at the time of the Kartik Purnima (full moon). Atmospheric shots of herders and their camels trekking across the desert appearing to hark back to a time before technology and industrialization – was what I had seen and expected to see when I went for the 2013 mela. But was surprised to find myself more drawn to the busy streets, the alleys, the faces and yes the colour was intriguing though I ended up exploring Pushkar beyond JUST the colour and camels..

Know the Photographer - Aparna completed her Diploma in Photography in August 2013 from Apex Academy for Photographic Excellence and has since been interning with renowned photographer Aditya Arya. She believes that life is so busy, so complicated, that we forget the little things, the most important things, and photography helps us capture those times, that we all would eventually forget. According to her photography conveys something that often words can't, or can but with more of them- pictures truly can speak a thousand words, and are as skilled in eliciting feelings and emotions in people as any great song or novel.
