An Indian woman cleaning up rice in front of her house as her husband sits behind her on the traditional "Charpoi". It's shot in a slum of Moti Bagh, in New Dehli.
I was disturbed after shooting this image because of the sadness, almost distress shown in the eyes of her husband.
Praying inside the temple alongside the sacred Yamuna River in Mathura.
Mathura is reputed to be the birthplace of Krishna, Krishnajanmabhoomi. The Keshav Dev temple was built in ancient times on the site of Krishna's supposed birthplace (an underground prison). As per epic Mahabharata, Mathura was the capital of the Surasena Kingdom, ruled by Kansa the maternal uncle of Krishna.

Bishnoi women working in a field near their home in a village south of Jodhpur.
It's very common to see Deers around their houses. The Bishnois are a community of nature worshippers in the state of Rajasthan. Bishnois are strong lovers of wild animals. It is because of their protection that in Bishnoi dominated areas, deer and antelope(such as blue bulls, black bucks, chinkaras and chowsinghas) are seen grazing peacefully in their fields despite the fact that the State of Rajasthan where the Bishnois mainly live, face severe shortages of water.The sect was founded by Guru Jambheshwar (b. 1451) after a drought in marwar region of India. He had laid down 29 principles to be followed by the sect. Bish means 20 and noi means 9. Thus, Bishnoi translates as Twenty-niners. Further the Guru told to worship lord Vishnu (Bishnu). Thus the sect called vishnoi or Bishnoi. Killing animals and felling trees were banned.
During the Summer months Rajasthan can be very hot. You can find everywhere holes in the walls where a woman or a man stay there to give water to passers by. Here next to a movie poster.
Alwar is a very quiet city of Rajasthan, not really on the tourist trail, this makes the people being friendly to the few tourists visiting this wonderrful place.
