Traditional Rajasthan Home – Patwaon ki Haveli – Jaisalmer

A place where the walls do not need art. Because the walls ARE art. The ceilings ARE art.

Was it such a bad thing that women did not step out of their homes? Such a home? I would voluntarily never step out! For I am sure that every day as my eyes opened surrounded by such beauty I would sigh and go back into a stupor, struck by the beauty, sighing and unable to think as the visuals flood my brain. No – I would not have the capacity to move out of such a home. Would I ‘want’ the freedom? Would I have any desire to do the same things that men did? Most likely not. I would pity them that they had to leave such a house every morning. I would not covet their lives at all. I would be a happy householder.

Images of  a trader’s house in Jaisalmer, A city that does not have an airport. A city that probably has no luxuries as we know them in the modern world. Yet it has THIS!! A home that was built not for a King or an emperor – but a home built for a ‘mere’ trader!!

With a home such as this, I would glad exchange my freedom and live & die as a blissful prisoner of art!

sigh!
