A great way to see rural Rajathani life is to take one of the many trips being offered, to the villages close to Jodhpur and have lunch with a local family.
Chai with a Bishnoi family, may well involve sharing amal, an opium preparation to welcome guests.
Watching lunch being prepared and then sharing it with a local family is lovely.
There’s also an opportunity to see and buy woven rugs, dhurries in the village of Salawas.
And it’s a sad account of the tragedy involving the death of 363 Bishnoi villagers who sacrificed themselves to protect their sacred Khejri trees at the memorial at Khejadali village.
