Engulf In The Five F’s Of Navratri

Navratri Sthapna marks the beginning of the festive season and for the next month or so, it is all about food, festivity, faith, fasting and a lot of fun! Navratri brings a new zeal with itself and there is a wave of new beginnings all around.

Jaipur Beat brings you the five F’s of this beautiful season of love, happiness, colours and light.

  1. Faith– The first and foremost thing that Navratri is about- Maa Durga’s love and blessings. The elaborate ‘puja’ and ‘havan’ during the Navratras cannot be forgotten. Moreover, it’s that time of the year when we finally start visiting the temples quite often due to Navratri. Visiting Amer’s Shila Mata temple is the most important #ThingsToDO which every Jaipurite tries to achieve ditching the tight schedule.

  1. Fasting- It’s the first question we ask – Are you on fast? That’s the most important part of Navratri. Some do it for faith, some to meet out their weight loss goals, and some do it for de-toxication but some like us are always after the best Falahaari delights. No matter the reason, we all believe in fasting and choose to instil some healthy eating habits during these nine days of Navratri.

  1. Food– Even though Navratri is about fasting, yet food is the constant love. We always find substitutes for what we cannot eat during Navratras. From fruit- chaat to Saabudana Khichdi and Kuttu Ki Puri we keep all the sweet to salty options at hand. And for those who are not fasting, festive season brings a new enthusiasm for the same old spicy food.

  1. Festivity- There is an air of festive mood in the weather with all the festive discounts, shopping spree, family functions and wedding functions lining up. You can see light and decorations wherever you turn your head.

 IMG_9658

  1. Fashion- Last but not least, fashion always makes the place for itself when it comes to the festivity. We have all tip-topped ourselves with glittery Gujarati or Rajasthani lehengas and Angrakhas some time or the other for the epic Garba and Dandiya night or even taking out our traditional Indian outfits.

The best time of the year is right here. Let’s enjoy it to the most!

Wishing you all a very Happy Navratri ! 🙂

The Zeal of Eid-Ul-Fitr In Jaipur

With the Ramadan heading to an end, you can smell the festivities in the air marking the arrival of the festival of Eid. Jaipur is all set to host yet another festival, this time its  Eid-ul-Fitr commonly known as the Meethi Eid, it is celebrated worldwide by the Muslim community.

With Eid just a few hours away, the surge of excitement can be seen among the Jaipurites. The hearts are filled with excitement and souls with devotion. Though people all around the city are more than excited, the real zeal of the festival is observed in the walled city, specially in the area of Ramganj.

The market these days are remarkably crowded. Every alley is filled with shoppers and every mosque in the city by devotees. Ramganj during the month of Ramadan becomes a flea market like none other. The shops welcome their customer right after the Iftar, the meal eaten after the sunrise ending the day-long fast and the alleys then witness people coming in for the entire night till sehari, the meal that is eaten before the dawn. The markets of Ramganj just before Eid are flooded with people like none other. Clothes, accessories, food just think of anything and you will find it at Ramganj during the night. The entire locality seems to shift to a nocturnal schedule for a month.

Chaand Rat

The festival is one of the most joyous occasions celebrated by Muslims. On the supposed last day of Ramadan, people are seen eagerly trying 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. The night of sighting of the moon is known as the Chaand Rat.

Eid ki Namaz

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.

Sewai

At the very day of Eid, when you enter a muslim household, a delightfully sweet aroma hits your nose, women in every house put all their heart in and prepare different dishes out of which the most astonishing is sewaiyan , a sweet dish made with milk. The milk is cooked for hours to give it an extremely thick texture and noodle like sewayian are added to it 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.

For children, Eid is even more joyous for they get their Eidi, gifts given to almost everyone in the family by anyone who is older than them. It is mostly some amount of money and other forms of gifts.

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

Eid Mubarak!
