THAR DESERT

The desert tells a story of men living in perfect harmony with a hostile nature. These simple people have evolved a culture which is simple, refreshing and at ease with their surroundings. The manner in which Thar Desert people have survived with dignity on natural resources without any outside aid, serves as a contrast to many a materialistic modern society.

The Thar Desert located in the western India, is a fast emerging tourist attraction. Many may not consider largely untouched desert landscapes with thin and scattered vegetation as ideal for tourists. Its inhabitants, however, make this place different. Unlike the Sahara and Kalahari Deserts, Thar Desert teems with life, with color and with contrast. This unique desert cannot be explained. Only by coming and seeing for oneself can the stranger absorb its rare beauty.

Jaisalmer

It boasts a people, fiercely proud of their cultural heritage and traditions; they have their own pace of life, their own philosophy. The human population is scattered over endless miles. Here and there one can see small villages and beside them clusters of houses called DHANIS. Occasionally the village has a single Dhani (small hut) located miles away. An agricultural society it continually struggles for its crops and cattle against difficult weather conditions, and for water, and for their very survival

Their houses have become things of beauty. Dhanis (small huts) are very well planned for summer, winter and monsoon seasons as well. Natives use neither cement nor bricks. The walls, instead, are built of wood and mud, the roofs of thatch. Interior and exterior have thoughtful and elaborate features. The women of the families try their best to decorate them with a skill that cannot be matched elsewhere. In every season of the year their houses always appear neat and clean.
