In case you are someone who loves a long drive, strolling across the city, walled city and outskirts can be quite a nourishing experience for you.

Local brand – Ek Taara carving a niche | Jaipur Beat

We are half-way through 2020 and this year has made us all go through a lot – both negative and positive. But if we focus on the bright side of the coin as it resonates better with the spirit of Jaipur, there are a lot of good things that have happened too – one of the key being ‘realizing the importance of locally produced goods of all kinds.

Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi rightly emphasized the need of the hour – be vocal for local, which would not only help us revive the economy but will help the millions who have lost their jobs in this pandemic. And Jaipur is a city that is full of art and craft, jewellery, garments, linen, handicrafts, traditional craftsmanship and some home-grown brands.

Ek Taara’s hot pink saree!

One such brand that is newly emerging and is a perfect blend of traditional and modern sensibilities is Ek Taara – A Timeless Journey! It is a brand that is authentically made in Rajasthan and has empowered the local tailors, artists, karigars and printers; who are painstakingly creating the traditional craft in a contemporary package and are making the ethnic collection absolutely fun to wear.

Indigo saree to suit any occasion!
Ethnic prints with a contemporary freshness!

Boasting of prints that embody a touch of whimsy and traditions, Ek Taara gives due importance to upcycling and make products like dupattas, sarees and apparels, clutches, handbags, stoles, cushion covers and even toys. Their collection symbolizes a mix and match of different forms of tie-dye, block printing, screen printing and more.

Ethnic yet very modish dress!

So if we the Jaipurities put on our best foot (read as click) forward, we would help local business thrive like never before, thereby helping the artisans believe in us once again. And did you know there’s a reason why Jaipur, in Rajasthan, brings to mind rich textiles, colorful pottery, and bright bangles.

The Pink City is the handicraft capital of India, home to 4,000 sari makers, 35,000 marble workers, and 1,000 bangle makers. These industries have been alive since ancient times and, with our little push and help will still manage to exist in a fragile state today.

This weekend re-kindle the love for travel |Jaipur Beat

The past two-and-a-half months have been thought-provoking for all of us. Where the initial phase was of getting accustomed to staying home, working from home and doing all the chores. The second was more intense as we started getting used to living a home-life, introspected and revived the lost hobbies and interests and coped up with each other for 24×7. The third for sure started to make one edgy as we now know, coronavirus is here to stay and we need to plan our life’s around it.

This means, even planning our travel around it for we Jaipurities simply love to travel. So where is it that you can travel? Travelling overseas, across borders or inter-state is something we won’t recommend you to do at least for this year. But in and around Jaipur, there are ample options for you to take that much-needed rejuvenating break!

Here are the top 5 recommendations for you which are near Jaipur:

  1. Sariska National Park: Located at a distance of about 133kms from Jaipur, visiting the ‘abode of Royal Bengal Tigers’ – the Sariska National Park is your perfect weekend corona break. And what’s best is that the reserve currently thrives with wildlife as recently Tigress ST-12 gave birth to three new cubs.
    Apart from the tigers, you can also spot endangered bird species, striped hyenas, leopards, jackals, monkeys, and deer’s. Once done with the national park, you can also visit Siliserh Lake, Sariska Palace, Bhartrihari Temple and Kankwari Fort.

  2. Ranthambore National Park: Heaven for wildlife and nature enthusiasts, Ranthambore National Park is just 122kms from Jaipur and that offers some incredible photography options. You can opt for a safari ride that gives you the chance to experience the wild species that are freely roaming around in the jungle.img_6304cc-copyPushkar: This holy city of Rajasthan offers ample photo-opportunities and is an ideal mix of divinity and serenity. Situated at just 161kms from Jaipur, here at Pushkar you can soak yourself in the mesmerizing sunset and sunrise views, sit next to the tranquil lake for some solace and peace. pushkar-81Walk down the narrow streets and lanes to taste some relish the delicious Malpua’s or Ugma ji ki Kachori, dal baati, Poha Pizza, Falafel, gulukund ki lassi and so so much more. Don’t miss to seek the blessings from the worlds’ only Brahma Temple. PushkarAbhaneri: If you thought what you would do in Abhaneri, well this little hidden treasure at just about 90kms from Jaipur is home to world’s largest step-well ‘Chand Baori’. Built by King Chanda somewhere in the 9th century, it is one of the hidden secrets of India and has 3,500 narrow steps arranged in perfect symmetry, which descend 20m to the bottom of the well and makes for an amazingly beautiful sight to behold.
    abhaneriBundi: Known for its iconic forts, palaces and natural beauty, Bundi is a beautiful city located at about 218kms from the Pink City Jaipur. Art lovers must go and witness the mesmerizing and original miniature paintings of ‘Chitrashala’ at Ghar Palace. The blue houses, lakes and numerous step wells dominate this small town. The finest example being the Rani ji ki baori.Bundi paintingsbundi

Yes, we all need a break to come back and adapt to a new normalcy.

So, buckle up and drive in safe!

Reminiscing the Zeal of Eid-Ul-Fitr | Jaipur Beat

Every year in Jaipur the festival of Eid brings excitement among the people. The hearts are filled with excitement and souls with devotion. Saddly this year due to lockdown the markets are empty and everyone is celebrating in their home only. But to be honest it doesn’t matter where you celebrate until and unless you are offering your prayers from the heart. So, let’s pray to almighty for the well being of everyone and that this tough times comes to an end soon but at the moment go back to the memory lane to experience the zeal of Jaipurites during this time of the year-

DSC_3319

Every year the markets are crowded and every alley is filled with shoppers. Ramganj market during the month of Ramadan becomes a flea market like none other. The shops welcome their customer right after the Iftar, when people pour in for the entire night till sehari, the meal that is eaten before the dawn.

DSC_3341

DSC_3331The festival is one of the most joyous occasions celebrated by Muslims. On the supposed last day of Ramadan, people eagerly wait for the Chaand raat and wait to spot the little crescent moon in the vast sky.  With the sighting of the crescent moon on the last day of Ramadan, it is confirmed that the holy month of fasting has ended.

Eid 1

picsart_05-25-08-12

On Eid, the Jama Masjid of Jaipur along with all the other mosques of the city hosts a special namaz for Eid where every male member of each family come and offer their prayers and gratitude to the almighty Allah. The women of the house offer their namaz from home itself. But this year everyone will offer namaz from their home only.

DSC_3333

Sewai

Gladly even during during lockdown some rituals remain the same like the delightful aroma of various delicacies prepared during this time can still be experienced coming from every Muslim household. Women in every house put all their heart in and prepare different dishes out of which the most savoring is sewaiyan , a sweet dish made with milk and with a lot a significant amount of dry fruits, specially Chuaras  (dried dates) to give the sweet dish a colour and ghee giving it a rich texture. The sweet dish is especially associated with Eid-ul-fitr and is loved by almost everyone.

DSC_3325

Eid is a symbol of oneness for people keeping aside their grudges and differences, meet and greet each other whole heartedly.

Let’s all pray for peace and happiness during these trying times for all and rejoice the festivities at home!

Stay home , stay safe!

5 Breakfast ideas to kick start your day in a healthy way | Jaipur Beat

Fruits

Staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic is boring and challenging for everyone, and the increased anxiety can cause people to abandon their healthy eating intentions resulting in junk snacking on whatever is around.

So this is also the time when instead of gorging on comfort food, eating a balanced and varied diet will help you develop more immune power to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. With a little thought and planning, you can continue to make good food choices and maybe even boost your mood and immunity.

The most important meal of the day is eating ‘breakfast like a king’. Breakfast helps to jumpstart your metabolism. Try to eat healthy carbs which digest slowly and make you feel full for a longer time – include whole grain, beans, vegetables.
Must include fruit and vegetable intake along with traditional food like – dhokla, moong ka chilla, millets, idli or dosa, can be consumed wherein the ingredients will also be available at home.
We belive that this is the most important time to eat healthy and stay healthy, Jaipur Beat brings you some healthy options to kick start your morning a healthy way-
Nuts- Nuts are high in fat, low in carbs, and a great source of several nutrients, including vitamin E, magnesium, and selenium and are loaded with antioxidents. The best part is Nuts have been shown to promote weight loss rather than contribute to weight gain.
As long as you eat them in moderation, nuts make for a tasty addition to a healthy and balanced diet.
Nuts 1
Wheat Pasta- To have a healthy breakfast doesn’t mean to have a boring one. The die hard pasta fans can have wheat pasta instead of white pasta as the white one is made of refined carbs, meaning it has been stripped of many nutrients during its processing. Just add some bell peppers and broccoli to make it more tasty. 
After eating this, we bet you will ditch the rich cheesy pasta available in cafes’.
Pasta 1
Poha 
One of the healthiest Indian breakfast, Poha is a wholesome meal and also a good source of carbohydrates and iron, rich in fibre, and full of essential vitamins. We are missing all those Poha thelas in different parts of our city but this dish is certainly something which can be prepared easily by every one at home.
Make it more appealing by adding chopped onion, tomotoa, pomegranate and coriander leaves.

 

poha 1

 

Bread Breakfast- Start your day with ultimate bread breakfast.  There are many ways to create healthier breakfast sandwiches that still include the carbs you crave, but are piled high with veggies, and healthy fats. This delicious, easily breakfast recipe is perfect for a busy family, where you just can’t go wrong! Though White bread is good too but it simply misses out the goodness of brown or whole wheat bread.

sandwich 2

Sprouts Salad– Add these tiny balls of nutrition to your breakfast. The best part is they are easy and cheap to grow and, and thus offer additional environmental benefits by avoiding pesticides and type of food additives.

salad 1

Last but not the least is to add some portion of fruits or fruit juices with your breakfast.
Tip- Eat everything in moderate amounts. 
platter 1
Summary– A healthy breakfast is important, especially because it is supposed to keep you energised till lunch time. It also boosts your metabolism and keeps your blood sugar levels stable.
Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy!

The Stillness of Jaipur City Speaks Volume for its Beauty | Jaipur Beat

Never before our camera captured the streets of Jaipur like this. The buzzing streets of our very own Pink City with vehicles, people, tea stalls, shops and even stray animals is now still. This calmness around the Rastas (term used in Jaipur for lanes) of Jaipur is helping the earth heal. As we sit inside our homes the nature is celebrating me time with blissful sight of blue skies giving the joy of breathing clean air. No doubt, we can ever stop falling in love with the beauty, people, culture, heritage, cuisine and most importantly, Colors of the Pink city.

But somewhere we miss the nostalgia that rings in the streets of our city. The day to day actions that keeps the city going has come to a halt. The above pictures depicts the very soul of a city is missing, thus, they are all in black and white.

But if we look at the bright side all the pictures it shows how we are fighting COVID19 together by staying inside which is the need of the hour. And let’s not forget the silent heroes that are risking their lives to save others such as, doctors, police, volunteers, nurses and all those who are stepping outside of the house to serve the people. So in return of their determination we all need to stay at home and save ours and everyone’s life.

Lastly, let’s hope that Jaipur city once again comes alive with the colors and everything comes back to the way it was i.e. to normal life.
