The ladies of the house will light their hearths with cow dung and leaves to cook food. The villager farmers plough their fields with bullocks.

Rajasthan has received hospitality as a God's gift and in the villages it remains supreme. It resides in the soul of rural folks. Reach a home in the middle of the night, the ladies will happily get up and cook fresh food for you. You can't pass by certain villages without enjoying hospitality.

Like all other human traits of the people of Rajasthan and their hospitality is also guileless, rare and intense. It is an ubiquitous theme of Rajasthani folk lore. When the crow, sitting atop the roof, crows, or dough when it is being kneaded bubbles, folk songs tell us that these are auspicious omens which convey that a guest is on his way. There are several other sayings which speak of the pleasures that are derived by looking after visitors. Good habitat, laughter, playfulness and love form the environment in which hospitality grows in Rajasthan.
