Photographer's Note

Looks like one camel asking the other... "Is that rain coming?" And the other one replying... "I don't know. I have never seen one."

During my recent visit to Jaisalmer - The Desert City of Rajasthan, I witnessed a very rare phenomenon... RAINS in the desert. Yes... it rained very heavily, and being in middle of the dunes, there was no cover. It was a lifetime experience for me... riding a camel running in rain.

However, it has been almost a month since then, and the rains that I witnessed, were beginning of a very strange change. The entire desert region has been flooded by numerous flash floods caused by heavy rains.... resulting in loss of many lives, and even complete destruction of many villages. It has threatened the ecology balance of the region.
