Sunday Post: Design

All over India women paint the threshold of their homes with traditional decorative patterns. We were fasciated by the beauty of the designs we saw in the Thar desert, halfway between Jaisalmer and Bikaner. The desert people lived simply in round huts made from natural materials, yet they were radiantly happy hospitable families. Here the art of the local women is displayed on the courtyard and around the walls of the grain store and dwelling.
