The Desert : Damaging an eco-sensitive zone

For decades, communities living in the Thar Desert have made a living tending to cattle and doing farming. But in recent years, the Thar Desert of Rajasthan is slowly being encroached upon. Rapid urbanisation, loss of already rare grazing land and widespread ecological changes pose as challenges that Thar and its communities deal and understand.
An attempt at understanding the people, environment, lives and the desert itself.
