Having accumulated accolades and experience over his last two decades at the prestigious Taj group of hotels, he delights patrons at the Taj hotel in Agra, with his mouthwatering recipes.

The Desert Festival is an annual event organized in the beautiful city of Jaisalmer. This three day festival is held in the month of February and is organized in association with the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation. The Desert Festival represents the rich and colorful Rajasthani folk culture.

During the festival, villagers sing and dance eloquently to the triumphs and the tragedies of the land.

Attractions include traditional gymnasts, mystical snake charmers, entertaining puppet shows and captivating folk music recitals. Along with this, a number of competitions are held during the festival, including the turban tying competition and longest moustaches competition. It's a fantastic showcase of all things Rajasthani, and is justifiably popular with tourists, both Indian and foreign. Besides the food, the music and the cultural performances, there are camel rides, processions, camel polo, and even a camel tug-of-war. All of it is held against the backdrop of the awesome Jaisalmer Fort. Firework displays at night light up the area, and the fort is illuminated too.
