The hunter's regret
There have been a lot of stories in the papers recently about people who go hunting, often for animals that are protected. A few months ago it was the Nawab of Pataudi, former captain of India's cricket team and father of Saif Ali Khan.
Every now and then, in the newspapers, we read that young women are “kidnapped,” usually when they are about to get married. The reasons for the kidnapping and the kidnappers vary, but the victims are always young women.

When we think of Rajasthan, the things that come to mind are the majesty of the Thar desert , camels, forts, valiant warriors and beautiful princesses, men in colourful turbans with big moustaches and smiling women that peep out from behind their veils.
