Title:

Bopa Gypsy, Nomadic People of the Rajasthan Desert, Pushkar, India.

Caption:

In Rajasthan it is not uncommon to see people with green eyes. Among the lowest castes are the Bopa and Kalbeliya Gypsies. In spite of their low status, these beautiful people are proud of their roots. Both the Kalbeliya and Bopa people make their living by performing songs and dances. In recent decades, the Maharajahs have gone and Indian and foreign tourists have replaced the royal audiences.
