In the Thar desert in Rajasthan there is the famous city of Jaisalmer. If you leave the city and wander in the surrounding desert, you will find many villages of gypsies. People used to a life almost without electricity and where water is one of the most precious assets.
People used to live under scorching temperatures and dedicated to farming and raising livestock. This was a small Muslim village where it was in progress the annual sheep shearing for future sale, or for tough nights in the desert, where temperatures drop drastically.
