The Famous “Pushkar Lady”

Papu is a woman from a tribe in Rajasthan, India. She has become a local celebrity, having been photographed countless times over the past decade. She owns a small business selling jewelry with her husband Chotu and sister Manori. She has also been able to support her family earning money from the photographs taken of her. A website has been dedicated to her, called The Papu Photo Project, which helps women who have been attacked due to insufficient dowry.
