Indian adventure for Madonna

Superstar Madonna has taken a break from her hectic schedule to take her family on holiday in India.

The star, her director husband Guy Ritchie and their children Lourdes, 11, seven-year-old Rocco and two-year-old David, have visited Udaipur – also known as City of Lakes – in northwest Rajasthan and are expected to take their tour to Mumbai.

The singer has been enjoying a low-key family holiday since arriving in India from the Maldives on a chartered Kingfisher jet on December 31.

She celebrated the new year being entertained in the desert by traditional dancers and folk singers.

“Madonna spent New Year's Eve with her family at a wilderness camp in the desert,” said Siddarth Singh, whose family owns the nearby Rohetgarh Fort where they have been staying and helped organise the entertainment.

“Madonna was comfortably dressed in Western clothes for the evening and enjoyed the dance performances along with her family.”

The evening included traditional Rajasthani folk music, with performances by Langa, Manganiar and Kalbelia dancers.

“There was a dancing horse show too,” added Mr Singh. “Traditional food was served at the party. Madonna had vegetable curries and fish, while her son and husband stuck to vegetables only.

“Later all of them danced with folk artistes into the wee hours. In the morning a special horse show was organised at Khandi, a village near Rohetgarh.

“Madonna and her son enjoyed the horse ride and seemed very comfortable interacting with the local people. No one even realised she was an A-list celebrity.”
