If you are planning a trip to Rajasthan  between October 30 and November 6 make sure to stop in Pushkar to check out the camel fair.  Since last July, thanks to a law passed by the government of Rajasthan, the camel is the state animal of Rajasthan.  In Pushkar, the children will love the camel races and the very special Marwari horses (check out their ears).  Can you distinguish the different types of camel? See if by the end of the fair you can tell the difference between the Bikaneri and the Jaisalmeri camels.
