2011 Flashback - The faces of Khajuraho


So all that one associates with Khajuraho is the kamasutra and the erotic sculptures. But if you step into the village, one of the cleanest Ive ever seen in India, the old hamlet gives you a different picture of Khajuraho.


I was a guest of Lalit Khajuraho , part of the Small Luxury hotes of the world and I watched them train some locals in hospitality and grooming.Young  girls who would have probably lived a cloistered life in their homes came out to take up this course and showed some interest in the profession.

But for the rest of their villagers, pottery is a way of life besides agriculture.

Such beautiful photos capturing the real people of Khajuraho. I loved visiting that town, and one of the best parts was wandering through the villages.

I must congratulate you on capturing these wonderful images of the real Khajuraho - of simple village folk following their simple occupation with such grit,dedication & fierce determination. Warm Regards Ram
