Mor thho Tilley (The Peacock is Dancing)

When it comes to peas, these beautiful birds are craze of South Asia.
In this drawing, I've depicted a scene of Thar Village, a stretching desert which is known for its abundance in Peacocks. You can see the traditional dressing of Thar ladies. They face hardships of hot weather, and go far and wide to bring water for their daily activities in earthen pots (Urdu: Matka)
Surely, a knock of Monsoon is indeed a festival for them. As the thundering clouds gather to announce the upcoming rain, Peacocks from far and wide gather in the desert and dance and enjoy!
The native ladies also cheer up by singing folk song (The title is a line from one of them).
