the bikaner diaries – part 1

Last winter we went to Bikaner and Jaisalmer. Here are some of the sketches from the trip.

bikaner - station road
This is the Station Road, Bikaner. Our hotel was right across the street – can you see the windows of our room on the first floor? We were sitting in a restaurant opposite and eating bhajias and chai.

Here’s Vivek sitting and drawing away. We had many cups of chai and some friendly local people for company. On the wall at the back is a big mural of Krishna.

Here’s an old man with his afternoon tea and bhajias. You can see Chhotu-Motu Joshi, Bikaner’s famous halwai behind the old man.

This is the bhajiawala outside the hotel.

In the Gajner palace courtyard. Gajner was the Maharaja of Bikaner’s shooting lodge, a few kms from the main city, on the banks of Gajner lake.
