In the Thar desert, in the northwest India, in a place where the exotism and color of the Indian cities meet the calm and hilly shape of the desert sands, the camels are moving. They do so for centuries. Their bosses have carried the goods along the Silk Road, have fed teeming populations, have walked over sands that bind cities, leaving behind the marks of the deep steps into a world of mystery and fantasy.
The Indian epic texts gave the desert a name that linked it to religion and spices: Lavanasagara, the Salt Ocean, that was born on a distance from the River Sarasvati, one of the main rivers mentioned in the Rig Veda ancient Hindu texts.
