A clip from the half-hour documentary 'Monumental Vision-India'. The Rhythms of Life site is located in an arid semi-desert area in Rajasthan near the town of Jobner. The site is near a 400-year-old fortress and a 1200-year-old temple. The 'Rhythms of Life' geoglyph was created with the assistance of 1000 workers, many of whom were brightly clad women wearing traditional saris. In keeping with local beliefs the site was blessed with water from the Ganges and milk curd. The stone structure 'Ratio' is constructed from the local red stone for which the region is famous. It is situated on a steep hill, close to a temple devoted to the Hindu goddess of fire and next to an ancient fort.
