Photography (scan from a slide). Photo taken on the 'street' (homestead and farm) (vad, phaliya), with a population of extended family (members of one lineage). On the left side you will see the entrance to the three houses, on the right the entrance to another house. On the left side you can see the couch where people sleep in front of the house - there sits a woman from a group of dheberiya rabari. Not used couches are moved to avoid clutter. Roofs are slope made with tiles, because the rain of monsoon rainfall - every five years - can be very large. Here can also stay cows - visible in the photo. Women dress in black - a skirt, jacket, long woolen veil over her head without patterns - determines its involvement in a dheberiya rabari
