Photographer's Note

Ram Lal told me of how in Rajasthan nomadism was much in decline with many Rabari choosing to become farmers or labourers. The reason for this shift he put down to loss of grazing land “farmers have put fields where the jungle used to be.” Ram Lal is Babudan’s son (see previous photo). Despite the harshness of their nomadic lifestyle and the problems put in the way by aggressive farmers and an indifferent government Ram Lal's lively intelligence allowed him to maintain a sharp sense of humour. “We true Rabari will always be able to find a path where others cannot… Our lives are hard but they are not finished yet.”
