Title:

Meghwal people, Barjarsar, Rajasthan Desert, India.

Caption:

For Megwal people, smoking is a social event. They pass around a single shilum pipe that their lips never touch.
They smoke the shilum by closing their hands around it, inhale some tobacco and hand it off to the next person.
The Meghwal people are among some of the poorest people in India. They live in small villages scattered throughout the Rajasthan desert.
