Summary :

Somewhere on Earth is off to discover Rajasthan. This land rich in history embodies all the magic of India. Located in the north of the country, Rajasthan is bordered by arid plains and mountains. It’s the ancestral land of the Maharajas, the last Rajput horsemen and desert tribes.

Pabu was born in the Thar Desert. He never left these steppes of his childhood. Pabu belongs to the tribe of the Bhils, the hunters. He has worked tirelessly at bettering the lives of the women and men of his community: The Untouchables of the Thar Desert.

Geraldine, on her legendary motorcycle, rides the roads of India and Rajasthan. After traveling in the US and Australia, this young Frenchwoman from Normandie landed in New Delhi. India, which she explores every day, has changed her life.

Ajeet is a horseman, a descendent of Rajasthan’s warriors, the Rajputs, literally “Sons of Kings.” At 32 years old, he’s continuing on the path of his family for 8 generations. Ajeet is an ardent defender of the Marwaris, the horses of Rajasthan that nearly became extinct.
