The Rajasthani Turban has a special place in the ritualistic life of the people. Called Safa, Paaga or pagri, it is a piece of cloth averagely nine metres
long. You could often get to know the region, caste and religion of the man, through the style of the turban worn.
Kuldhara, near Jaisalmer, is a village, which has been abandoned since early 1800s and is believed to carry a curse of the residents who migrated
elsewhere. Salim Singh, the minister of the state, once visiting this village, fell for a young beautiful girl and wanted to get married to her.
The minister threatened the villagers that if they did not marry the girl to him, he would levy huge taxes. The chief of the village decided to abandon
Kuldhara and migrate elsewhere as against marrying the girl to Salim Singh.
