Things to do with your dad, this Father’s Day!

No day could ever be enough to cherish the relation of affection and care with our fathers and reciprocate to what he does for us.  But we can indeed celebrate this heartfelt relationship to admire the superhero in our lives and enjoy it to the fullest with some warm and ingenious gestures.

Hence with Father’s Day around the corner, most of you have already started scratching your heads into thinking of such creative and yet unscripted ideas to make the day a memorable one for our greatest dads.

Here is a list of the things you can do with your papa that will make his day in a little different manner.

  1. Road trip with dad

The ride is about to get bumpy but not the one that will hurt your back but the one you can enjoy with your dad this father’s day. So, fasten your seat belts and get ready for an adventurous trip to maybe Neemrana fort for a spectacular sunset or Pushkar to gusto camel safari or you may visit Sambhar Lake, Ranthambore, and Bhangarh Fort for a thrill experience with your dad.

  1. Binge watching, old classics with your old man

From Do Bigha ZaminAmar Prem to Amar Akbar Anthony and Dewar, these are the golden classic hits of the 40s and 60s. You can make your dad’s day by watching these classics or listening to the music with him, with popcorn and coke you can enjoy this father’s day binge watching with your old man.

  1. Cook with your dad and serve him

We all like to eat but there are few who love to cook. If your papa’s choice is the latter then why not cook with him. You can help him with lunch or while cooking supper. It will really make his day and this aid is worth a lot than any gift to him.

  1. A little surprise for him

We all appreciate surprises, and few surprises are sabse hatke. If your dad’s been longing for a pet for a long time, father’s day is apt for introducing a new little member to the family. Your dad will absolutely love it.

  1. Nostalgic times with papa

Father’s don’t tell us but they like spending time together and talking about the times of their old days. The tales they tell us always give a lesson and also we get to know how notorious they were when they were kids. So, those who are still not sure about the gift for father’s day can give one of the most valuable presents that is their time.

  1. Spa trip with him

Why should moms have all the fun at the spa? Our dads also love to relax and pamper themselves. This Father’s Day you can overwhelm your papa by taking a trip together that will not tire him instead relieves him.

  1. Phone de-tox for the whole day

The addiction of mobile is not limited to just youngsters anymore but to our moms and dads as well! Let’s get ourselves phone de-toxed this Father’s Day and keep all the mobile phones aside. Rather sit together and do the things your father and you love doing together.
phone detox

  1. Watch Cricket World Cup 2019 with dad

The cricket fever is on and the most awaited match of India vs. Pakistan is on 16th June 2019 same day as Father’s Day. What’s the best thing to do together with him than watching the Cricket World Cup match?

  1. A techno-savvy father

If you and your dad are those techno-savvy and video games freaks then what’s better than a video game battle with your dad. And you can spend your Sunday with your dad the whole day playing games and spending time together.

Reliving The Amazing Memories At Kanak Ghati, Jaipur.

Kanak Ghati is one place where we all, at one point of our lives has been to. In retrospect, Kanak Ghati was the no. 1 picnic spot for the school picnics as well as family picnics. The maintenance of the historical garden has been kept up to date by the government and the café in the park’s premises still serves good food. The feel of Kanak Ghati still remains the same but, the people are so caught up in their own lives’, they hardly get any time to revisit this beautiful garden.

IMG_9194.JPG

Kanak Ghati is also famously called Kanak Vrindavan, it is named so as it was constructed based on the Lord Krishna’s Vrindavan. The picturesque idols of Lord Krishna and the Gopis, surrounded by the beautiful flowers at Kanak Ghati brings alive the spirit of the playful God in the truest form.

IMG_9209.JPG

There are various scenes recreated around Kanak Ghati with idols of Lord Krishna. The construction of the garden dates back to more than 300 years when the idol of Lord Govind Dev Ji had to be shifted from Vrindavan. The temples in Kanak Ghati area were constructed to house the idol of Govind Dev Ji, but in 1716, the idol was shifted to the now called Govind Dev Ji Temple in City Palace area in Jaipur.

IMG_9178.JPG

The particular spot that Kanak Ghati is at, the valley below Nahargarh was specially chosen for its construction as it adds special grace to the majestic Nahargarh Fort, Jaigarh Fort, and the Jal Mahal Palace. If you are looking to explore the heritage of Jaipur, there’s no better place than the trio of palaces, Nahargarh, Jaigarh and Amer Palace.

IMG_9215.JPG

With very close proximity to the great palaces, Kanak Ghati is definitely a place to visit for a serene experience and the feel of Jaipur. The pools and fountains at the Ghati make sure the beauty of the Ghati remains extraordinary, and everyone in the family enjoys the getaway as much. As Jaipur is widely called, the Chotti Kashi, for the number of temples that it houses, Kanak Ghati adds another exciting layer of holiness and fun to the city of Jaipur.

IMG_9230.JPG

Kanak Ghati is a perfect full day escape from the hustle and bustle of daily lives we are so caught up in, the surrounding of Kanak Ghati make it the absolute serene garden in the city of Jaipur. The Ghati has a picturesque view of the great Aravalis and lies just below the valley of Nahargarh, there is certainly no other place with a view and location like this, in the entire world.

Jaipur Mountaineers Make It To The Far North!

When passion becomes purpose, miracles happen. This has been proved by three young mountaineers from Pink City who followed their passion and made it truly evident that there is no peak of the world higher than willpower.

43333392_174455060111325_5302598294730440704_n

Having started their journey of bravery from Tongul village at Kargil on August 27, Rahul Bairwa, Sandeep Saini and Nipun Shashtri climbed for 24 days and achieved the rare feat of scaling 7135 meters of Mount Nun, the highest peak of Himalayan Range lying on the Indian side of LoC.

 

43266586_2278349845731215_6019524268822364160_n43270241_549386385502618_8025828111260057600_n

Having survived the extreme climatic conditions, heavy snowfall for more than 72 hours, lack of oxygen due to the altitude and having lost a friend to hypothermia on the way, did not let their will to conquer the mountain die and they started to climb again on 19th September after having been stranded for almost 9 days due to thunderstorm and snow.

43195422_1078551075602995_4385992986035486720_n

Although most of their team members had climbed down due to extremely bad weather, this trio did not back down and made way for success through their constant struggle and undying motivation.

43190282_261469961239923_7982561237785378816_n

The motto of these inspiring heroes was to create awareness about waste management and to promote adventure sports in Jaipur.

Team Jaipur Beat congratulates these heroes for their courageous achievement and for having made Jaipur proud.
