Living with Art – A Home in rural Rajasthan

On a highway outside Jaisalmer, driving at 80kmph, I spot an artistically decorated walled enclave.

The driver is instructed to stop.

He is first confused about my request to visit the enclave that looks like a home. But after a few hurried explanations – he understands.

He alights from the car and walks to the gate.

He knocks.

And enters.

It turns out to be the home of an extended family belonging to a particular Bhil tribe.

A life that is bare & free from material entrapments. Yet overflowing with art!

    Each little time I think I’ve had enough of you my India, there’s a new page : a new little lane back of someplace beyond this eye : a coir cot sunbathed, a man’s earring, a patch of cowdung baked earth, antenna beeping at my very soul – oh how you’ve woven us India. How you so have. We are root and soil blood, one bone. One peninsula shaped poem
