Maro Ghagro Jo Ghoomyo

     The Indian state of Rajasthan is famous for its culture and history. The grandeur of the Rajput kings is still visible every where. It is a major tourist destination. The culture of this state is distinct. The highly cultivated classical music and dance is a part of its heritage. The folk music is uncomplicated and reflects daily chores. The traditional dress is colourful and eye catching. The combination of vibrating music, colourful dresses and high voltage moves makes it an unforgettable spectacle. The post title has been taken from a folk song which literally translated means 'when my skirt swirls'. Well this attempt can never do justice to the actual dance but hope it motivates you to try and make it to Rajasthan sometime. 
      Have a great weekend.
