Object description:

The photo shows the departure of dheberiya rabari shepherds to distant pastures. The men went with the herds beforehand, and the women join the camels with their children and belongings. Mattresses, blankets, metal dishes and containers were placed on the animal, and sometimes wooden beds were transported. The youngest children are riding. Usually they march in small groups. Often, small groups of women with camels also include dogs. In the photo, an elderly woman is leading the camel. The lack of jewelry indicates that she is a widow. They leave their home village of Haruri. The stay away from home sometimes lasted up to 4 months. The sight of female rabari driving camels loaded with their belongings was typical of those times.
