  • Leading his camels to the annual Pushkar Mela, or fair, that draws vendors, visitors, and religious participants from all over India’s desert state of Rajasthan, this herder is headed for the fair’s camel shows and livestock market. Several thousand camels and other animals are bought, sold, and traded during this five-day event, which takes place during the full moon of late October or early November. Camel herders, musicians and dancers, and other visitors are joined by Hindu pilgrims who come to take a holy dip in Pushkar Lake under the full moon to wash away sins and seek salvation.
