  • 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.

  1. I MUST have this every year and give it as gifts - ESSENTIAL 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 12th 2018

    This calendar is the only one I have ever seen which provides at least one holiday for EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR! The photos are stunning and the array of countries featured from year to year makes for a well rounded product. I have been getting multiple copies of the calendar for about the last 20 years. Thank you.

    the calendars were stuck to one another after having been wet so long, they had begun to grow mold.

    I look forward to the arrival of each year's calendar and enjoy it each month throughout the year. The pictures are engaging. The country facts are interesting and educational. The holiday and festival information is both interesting and helpful as I see people throughout the year who celebrate them.

  5. Gorgeous & useful but bruised in mail. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 2nd 2018

    The calendar is well formated & planned , big enough day boxes for me to write in. Gorgeous thoughtful photos. Mailing envelope was too flimsy - One side had a crunch all the way thru both calendars..
