India 2016 "Royal Rajasthan"│Bishnoi Village Safari: encounter with sheep

March 9th, 2016
Rajasthan, India

Suddenly, I saw a flock of sheep in the middle of nowhere. Some were in the field looking hopelessly for food in the dry soil, others crossing the street. I asked the driver to stop the vehicle, and run to caress them. They seemed so sweet to me. I could kiss them all, but the closer I was approaching, the further they were going away from me.What a pity! Anyway, this is one of my sweetest memories from India.


"Bishnoi area comes under the city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Bishnoi area is a wonderland where wild animals walk past village huts; where the villagers prefer to sleep without food so that the animals are fed and are ready to die to save the trees and nature. Bishnoi carpenters never cut trees. They wait for trees to die on their own or fall down during storms. The varied species in Bishnoi villages include black bucks, antelopes, chinkaras, peacocks and even cranes. The black buck is also a much-worshipped animal among the Bishnoi tribes who inhabit the area. Bishnois follow world's only environmental religion."
