Riding with the Locals

The Shekhawati region of India is in the northeast portion of Rajastan, not far from Jaipur. Once ruled by the Shekhawat Rajputs, the area is renowned for its exquisitely painted havelis, or private mansions, many of which contain some of the most beautiful frescoes in the world.

The Rajputs have long since disappeared and life has become much more simple. In fact, Shekhawati's small "villages" are a sharp contrast to the large cities that are so typical in India.

Travel from village to village is generally by bus, as it is throughout India, but somehow the rural aspect of the region exudes a special kind of peacefulness, as witnessed by the faces of these locals.
