  • 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. A holiday for every day! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jan 11th 2019

      The calendar is great. One concern I have is the delay in getting my order. I ordered on line on December 21. I did not expect to receive the seven calendars by Dec 24 but at least by January 1. They arrived on January 8.

      Posted by on Oct 28th 2018

      The calendars make wonderful gifts for our family. I have sent the calendars for at least 6 years and also passed these to community friends and our church. It is a great way for others to understand the good work of Peace Corps volunteers. I also purchase and use the note cards.
