Manages a homestay, which her family owns
Priyanka lives in Gurugram where she’s studying French to fulfil her dream of living in France some day. She comes to Alsisar during the festival to help her family manage their homestay. A room here costs ₹4,000 per night, and their special home-cooked Rajasthani thali costs ₹300.

“We end up earning more in these three days than we do in an entire year.”
