Women of Rajasthan

Women of Rajasthan wear exquisitely contrasting and colorful clothes. The yellow wearings of women of Rajasthan are called Peeli Lugdi, literally meaning yellow clothing of females. Most of the times, women of Rajasthan are found in peeli lugdi only.

As you will note in the below photographs, the women of Rajasthan are very shy. But they have equal hardship to face in life. Still, they are always seen smiling and cheering!

I have tried to photograph the real women of Rajasthan. Do you like the photographs? :)

  6. Your photos are beautiful - so full of color and smiles. And the women do indeed seem to be hard working and industrious ... yet still are so beautiful and seem so happy!

  8. The pictures show us so much of life in Rajasthan. The women seem very industrious and I like their yellow garb. It is lovely brightened with the floral embroidery. Clearly, they must work hard - but that is the way of life for them and I am sure they shoulder it, probably with little complaint!
    I've seen photos of the brillantly colored turban of the men. I would so love to visit there.
