Abstract:

The scene was straight out of a different century. We lounged around a campfire among the moonlit dunes of the Rajasthan desert while graceful Kalbeliya dancers swirled around in their black mirror-worked skirts. The Manganiyars, the traditional singers of Rajasthan sang of the rain of tears that poured from eyes of a lovelorn beloved.
