    This is Trevor Tank, a local wildlife sanctuary that was established in the 1960's. Its purpose was preserve the local flora and fauna, which is still a goal today.
    This picture was taken on a tractor with the villagers. We had to travel by tractor because the roads were not conducive to regular automobiles and it enabled us to take a closer look at shepherd life in villages surrounding Mt Abu.
    This picture is of the Katchhi people from Gujarat (south-west of Rajasthan) migrating to the villages for food for their camels.
    During our tour of the local village, we experienced women making purified butter from buffalo and cow. Locals call this "ghee." Our group had the opportunity to churn the butter with the villagers and were welcomed to participate in the daily chores.
