And the wait for Social Symphony Awards is finally over – 4th September 2020

Jaipur Beat is proud to announce the “Social Symphony Awards” an initiative to honour such inspiring brands and individuals of Jaipur, who have leveraged their greatest strength of adopting digitalization, who have observed the new trends and adapted with their dynamic and creative decision making in these harsh times.

To create a symphony among different industries, brands, and creators, Jaipur Beat emerged with an idea to recognize those who were not shaken by the pandemic crisis and made a remarkable comeback through the medium of social media

This pandemic has taken a toll on everyone mentally and economically but there were some who chose to come out stronger than ever battling the odds in the uncertain times. In these exceedingly tough times for businesses, where launches were getting deferred, movie theatres, malls, restaurants & cafes were downing shutters, and travel was grinding to a halt, Social Symphony Awards decided to reward the brands and creators who took this as an extraordinary opportunity to take over social media and adapt to the new digital era.

Jaipur’s rich cultural heritage is displayed in the traditions, customs, lifestyle, art and architecture of this place. The way of life in Jaipur is a mix of legacy and modernity which unfolds the glorious past and the contemporary lifestyle in which social media plays an integral part.

It was launched on 8th August with a vision to see Social Symphony Awards as one of the most authentic and respected awards for being the pioneer and the only-cross industry award in Jaipur. An in-depth scientific analysis was conducted to choose the best out of best in each category.

We have unveiled 12 categories and 82 nominees to celebrate the most creative content on social media across the city.

Social Symphony Awards was possible because of the enormous effort of our high profile and distinguished jury members from varying backgrounds including media professionals, food connoisseurs, educationists, authors, photographers, influencers, creative directors and entrepreneurs. Real-time panel discussions were conducted with statistical data where they deliberated over the nominations and considerately selected the winner based on the criteria of the category. The discussions were high-spirited brimming with healthy discussions and valuable outputs.

Witness a grand celebration of the finest talent, fans and enthusiasts from across the city as we bring alive the experience of the Awards to you on any device of your choice.

The Social Symphony Awards is all set to go live on 4th September at 6:30pm on the official Facebook page of ‘Jaipur Beat’.

Educational Institutions of Jaipur that marked the beginning of New Era!

Heritage has been the USP of the Pink City but do you know that Jaipur is also a  world class education hub. Jaipur schools, colleges and Universities have always imparted the right educational skills to Jaipurites .

On this Teachers day, we at Jaipur Beat thought to peep into the history of cities educational centers who are marking their foot prints from old age to the modern days.

Going back to the era, Maharaja High School is probably the oldest in Jaipur city.

Maharaja High School, probably the oldest school of Jaipur
Maharaja High School, probably the oldest school of Jaipur

But the real twist in education was brought by  the former queen of Jaipur and of course the charismatic Gayatri Devi, who was very much interested in women’s education. To impart all round education on the modern lines to Indian girls so as to enable them to grow up into refined, knowledgeable and responsible citizen, the Highness Rajmata Gayatri Devi established Rajasthan’s first all- girls school Maharani Gayatri Devi Girl’s School (MGD) in 1943.

Putting quality at the heart of development, a handful of other girls’ schools like St. Angela Sophia Girls School and Maharani Convent School also rendered devoted service in the field of girl’s education.

Schools that emerged responsible in delivering value based co-education and providing ample opportunities for the development of students’ inborn abilities and talents are Maharaja Sawai Man Singh Vidyalaya, St. Xavier school and Bhartiya Vidya Ashram school to name a few, which brought  tremendous improvement in the education system making learning an  interesting, lively and enjoyable process.

Not only schools, Jaipur have as many as 22 universities, including 17 private and 5 state-owned. Even cities like London, New York are way behind Jaipur in terms of the number of universities. 

Renowned colleges having academic excellence as their hallmark such as Maharani College for Girls, Maharaja College for BoysPoddar Group of Institutions, IIS University and Seedling Group of Colleges began their journey in Jaipur to fashion the basic principles of life, mould mental attitudes and shape the character of Jaipurites. Their contribution in filling the life of Jaipur youth with vigor and zest is laudable.

Over the years we can say the education scene has blossomed in Jaipur!!

Happy Teachers Day to all!!
