Photographer's Note

Pendant la quinzaine de la foire aux chameaux de Pushkar, sursature de touristes, on fait feu de tout bois pour glaner quelque argent. Mendiants, bateleurs, petits mtiers... arpentent la ville en qute de quelques roupies. Ainsi, certains enfants se dguisent l'effigie des dieux pour attirer l'attention et l'obole des photographes. Le bleu de Shiva, particulirement photognique, est le plus frquent. On voit aussi Hanuman, le dieu singe
Cet enfant ici ( laide mes amis indiens pour me dire en quel Dieu il est dguis !) mobservait avec intrt, en se disant qu dfaut de quelques roupies, un samosa ferait, aprs tout, aussi bien laffaire. Il a eu gain de cause, bien entendu !

During the Pushkar camel fair, oversaturated with tourists, poor people try to earn some little money. Beggars, acrobats, snake charmers ... tramp the streets in search of a few rupies. Thus, some kids are dressed up as gods to draw the attention. The blue Shiva, quite appealing for photographers, is most frequently met and also often Hanuman.
This kid (I need help from my indian friends to tell me at the effigy of which god hes dressed up !?), was watching me with much interest, thinking that if not for a few rupies, after all a good samosa could do as well. Of course, he finally got right !!
