The Modernity and Ethnicity of the Pushkar Fair in Rajasthan

Pushkar Fair 2011

Pushkar Fair 2011

I have so wanted to travel to Rajasthan, as I have never been there. Technically, I have been there, if one counts it. I mean I just had a halt in a town or rather in a village called Dhaulpur that is quite famous for its red stone basically used in the floorings of the houses. It also so, became one of our halts because of the fact that I was travelling by road to Madhya Pradesh. This comes in the route to Gwalior, Jhansi et al. But, I do not count on this as a visit to this Rajputana state. Imagine living in Delhi also, I have never crossed the borders to even travel upto the pink city. How shameful is that? I mean I have that self opinion because I am very fond of travelling and still I have never been to this colorful state. That is why I consider it as an insult. I do not think I am planning a trip there, any time soon.  But, still if I am able to convince the others in my friend circle, I can still aim for booking a trip to the Pushkar fair at least later this year in the month of November. The list for the programmes for the Pushkar fair is already out and as such according to those dates a trip can be planned.

I am very much lured by the heritage and the culture of the state on the whole. It is like a living dream.  It really enchants you and takes you back into the royal reality of the past and yet you are face to face with the modernity of today’s times. How can such a blend be formed, first of all and still be reached to? The answer to this probably is that there are places to visit and see that they are old and ancient. Thus, there is the bonding with the heritage and then one has all the adventure activities like an air balloon flight, desert safari and so on. The activities relating to an air balloon flight nature are all very safe and sound, as all the safety measures are taken into account.

Well, this is what we have available in this place and in our country. This is why; India is India, a great combination of modernity with ethnicity.
