As the sun sets over the Thar Desert in Rajasthan, India a lonely local boy, trudges through the sand from a small village in the distance. After an afternoon of trying to sell tourists a beer in the desert he heads home with his leftover product. He did succeed is selling us a couple of beers, but as we looked around we could see that business was not booming. Hopefully with the few Rupees he made for us he can hold his head high as he returns home with the days earnings.

Life in the desert of India is hard and this photo captures the daily trials and tribulations that people must face every day in the great Thar Desert in Rajasthan, India.

      You are absolutely right. Life is difficult for many and there is nothing glamorous about living in poverty. Many travellers tend to talk about how they love seeing scenes like this and the simplicity in life whereas in reality, it is a very hard way of living and we need to respect that.
