Wesley Clay, Antlers Class of 1975, took this stunning shot of an 11th Century Temple while in Osan, Rauasthan, India. The Temple has many visitors that pilgrim there to be blessed with prosperity by the gods (33,000 different ones in India), especially for wedding couples.

Clay is in India finishing up the first Solar Reflection Plant in the country. It is a 50 Mw plant that will provide much needed power to a very remote region in Rauasthan, the Thar desert. The people here live very much like they have since the beginning of time with thatch roof huts and sheep herding. Only in the larger villages do they have schools.

Most of the old forts are still standing and in amazing shape. They had beautiful palaces in them that each Maharajah would build that were lavishly decorated with gold and silver. The walls went for miles around the city and most of the population still resides within. Some of the temples are B.C. This location is on the border of Pakistan.

“I try to visit a different area every couple of weeks,” said Clay.

Clay continued on to say that most of his family still live in the Antlers area, including: Kevin Clay, Debbie Rosenthal, Billy Clay, Joel and Lucretia Taylor, and Zack Rosenthal.
