THE NAHARGARH WEDDING – I often visit Rajasthan and I love the people for their warmth, exuberance and the heritage style. The culture is deeply entrenched and there is a strong sense of dressing amongst the men and women. One fine evening I was traveling around the city where a beautifully lit haveli caught my eye. I walked towards the courtyard only to realize a wedding was taking place in this small village where I had gone to meet my craftsmen. Seeing an unknown guest, the father of the bride welcomed me with open arms like I was one of their own. Their warmth was deeply infectious. The wedding was a typical rajput ceremony – men in beautifully tied safas and girls in vibrant hues of red and rani stood out against the old jaisalmeri stone arches. The bride was in a strong sindoori red lehenga with minimal jewelry and strong kohl eyes. She was striking. Fixing her nath, she walked out of her aangan holding her fathers hand to start a new life of love, trust and friendship. The Nahargarh Wedding is dedicated to this simple bond of trust, my untold story . .
