The primitive village picture was taken somewhere in the Thar Desert, in the state of Rajasthan, India. The nearest large city is Jaipur. The desert's total area is over 200,000 square kilometers, lying mostly in Rajasthan, with a portion in Pakistan.

The area is extremely arid. Its proud people live by tending some grazing animals, though the vegetation is sparse and the land will support very few. There were no signs of human habitation for several (bumpy) miles before and after we reached this extremely isolated village. We wondered what they thought of our modernity, our large air-conditioned bus,
our cameras, and us.
