All the very latest in camel fashion

Every year, the usually sleepy lakeside town of Pushkar in Rajasthan turns into a riot of colour, noise and spectacle as the camel fair comes to town. Originally intended to attract camel and cattle traders to the town to do business during the Hindu Katrik Purnima full moon festival, the Pushkar Camel Fair has grown into a major mela with camel races, camel beauty parades and colourful markets selling the latest in camel fashion.
