Description:

Photography (scan from a slide). The picture shows a group of shepherds kachchi rabari participating in a ceremony in honor of pir from the tomb of the Muslim saint (pir) located a short distance from the village. In the foreground you can see three women with children. Dressed in traditional costumes - black skirts, colorful blouses and long black wool veils (ludi) patterned in red dots. On the back you will see men and children sitting around a tomb. The elders are dressed in white, some of them wearing turbans in purple-black color and others in white. This is a sign that the holiday attracts shepherds kachchi and dheberiya rabari. These types of sites with buried bodies is many in Rajasthan, and buried there "saints" are given different terms (pir, miyan). They are the places marked by the divine power flowing from the body of the saint, and thus visited by Muslims, but also by the followers of Hinduism
