Bhopa and Bhopi

Wandering minstrels.

The Bhopas are itinerant folk musicians of Rajasthan. I came across this couple in the ancient town of Mandore. These are not staged shots.

    INDIA i.e. BHARAT, is full of costumes, colours and musical instruments right from ‘Kashmir to Kanyakumari’ and from ‘Kokrasar to Kachha’. It’s so immense and worth, that there is no need of looking to western ways of living.
    But ‘Alas’ the very cultural language of this great Nation, namely, “SANSKRIT” was suppressed from the PEOPLE, so that they could never unite.
    If “SANSKRIT” language could be ‘revived, promoted and propagated’ by way of “NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM”, PEOPLE would surely be united NATIONALLY.ReplyCancel
