Well, it might be a debatable topic to some, but writing from the perspective of someone who has spent an incessant amount of time in Jaipur is surely bound to fall in love with the mesmerizing Pink City.
The amazingness about Jaipur lies in its unique old world charm along with a twist of modernity. Jaipur is a city where both Moti Doongri Ganesh Temple and Gaurav Tower are equally lively in the evenings. It is the city, where the youth is reaching new heights every day and at the same time the older generation still wakes up before the sunrise to have a glimpse of the Mangla Aarti of Govind DevJi.
Today, on ‘World Happiness Day’, we are listing down 10 top reasons that make every Jaipurite happy and proud of!
1. Never Ending Festivities
Be it Diwali or Eid, Christmas or Mahavir Jayanti, Lohri or Chetichand, Sankranti or Gangaur we, Jaipurites always take time to enjoy all the festivals with our near and dear like it’s our own!
2. Street Shopping at Bapu Bazar and Johari Bazar
Flooded with fashionable Kolhapuris, colorful Lehariya, beautiful semi-precious jewellery and artifacts, Jaipur’s Bapu Bazar and Johari Bazar are rightly called shopper’s paradise. Unlike the shopping experience in metros, buying clothes and handicrafts in Pink City is quite an affordable and a great shopping experience.
3. Foodies’ Paradise
You’ll never feel starved when you are in Jaipur. From breakfast to dinner or even late night snacking, Jaipur offers you an array of food items like Rawat’s pyaaz ki kachori, Dal Bati Churma, spicy Lal Maas, and mouthwatering chaats. But to end everything on a sweet note we also have LMB’s famous rabri ghewar and even Pandit’s Matka kulfi.
4. Lesser Honking horns
One fine day getting on the streets of Jaipur you might feel that there is no space to walk but we are far better than the hustle-bustle of the metropolitan cities even though we are surrounded by highly developed metropolis cities.
5. Jaipurites wear their culture on the sleeves
People think living in Rajasthan is living in an isolated barren desert which has nothing – no water, no liveliness. But we can prove you absolutely wrong. Jaipurites live a tradition, wear its clothes, eat its food, and speak its language. Being in Jaipur gives you an exotic taste of its Rajasthani culture. We bring color to lives by wearing bright, soothing, eye-appealing clothes.
6. Elephants in place of cars (is it still there?)
Awestruck! Yes, elephants seen on the streets of Jaipur are no new thing for us. The road is to them like it is to us. You feel like an ant when near it but you equally can be on top of the world when you are in Jaipur!
7. Be on the top of the world
We breathe fresh! We love to spend our weekends not lazing around in bed but getting up and climbing a mountain for a site worth seeing – Nahargarh or even sunrise at Jal Mahal.
8. A sight to behold
Get up! Open your windows and what do you see – shout out loud ‘Aravallis’!
9. Strong Social Connections
Jaipurites are well known for their social and hospitable nature. We have an innate quality to help others in time of need and maintain a strong sense of connection. So, wherever you go if you find a Jaipurite, I assure you can blindly rely on him.
10. Better work-life balance
We value everything that comes our way. We enjoy our work equally as we enjoy being with our friends and families. Who would want more than this?
In short, Jaipur feels like home! And home is always the happiest place on the earth!
Happy International Happiness Day!
