Diwali, as we all know, is the grand festival that is celebrated all over the country with new full zeal every year. It is also one of the most important festivals for Jaipur and Jaipurites, as here it is observed for a full 5 days. During this time entire Pink city is decked up, and all monuments and buildings are lit up which makes the city truly beautiful and full of splendour. The preparations start almost a month ago when Jaipurites starts cleaning the house, and decorating it because Diwali is not just a day-long affair for us but it is a complete five-day long event. And we believe to celebrate each and every day of Diwali with full passion. But did you know the significance of all these five days?

Let’s get a bit of knowledge about our favourite 5 Diwali days-

Dhanteras

Dhanteras which is also known as “Dhanvantari Trayodashi” is the first day of the five days of Diwali celebration. The legend behind celebrating Dhanteras is that the ocean was churned by Gods and demons to get Amrita or nectar. Dhanvantari (known as physician of Gods) had emerged out with a jar of elixir from the ocean. That is why this day is celebrated as Dhanteras.

It is believed that buying things such as gold or silver coins, jewellery, new utensils or other new things is the sign of Lakshmi coming home whole year. On this day Jaipur markets like Tripolia Bazaar, Johari Bazaar gets all bustled up with the people as everyone is busy buying the things.

Roop Chaturdashi

The second day is Roop Chaturdashi which is also known as Naraka Chaturdashi, Kali Chaudas or Choti Diwali. After a month-long cleaning of the home, it is time to deck up ourselves. It is believed that on this day it is very important to take care of one’s body and also improving one’s appearance through external means. In the old days, women used to apply ubtan to get that natural glow and now they go to parlours to get the festive look.

Whatever you opt for, this day signifies that you need to glow & shine like Diwali lights.

This is the main day and marks the return of Lord Rama along with wife Sita to their kingdom from 14 year-long exile after defeating Ravana. When Rama, Sita and Lakshaman were back, the people of Ayodhya celebrated the return of their king by illuminating the earthen diyas and bursting firecrackers. Hence, Diwali is the celebration of Homecoming. We light up homes, wear new clothes, prepare lots of delicacies and offer prayers to Goddess Lakshmi. No matter where you are Jaipurites love to come back home to be with their family, and this is the true essence of this festival of Diwali.

Govardhan Pooja

The fourth day is Govardhan Pooja or Annakoota, people show their gratitude towards Lord Krishna by offering various types of food. The story behind this day is that, once Lord Indra got angry for the villagers had stopped offering him lavish meals which in return he promised good rains for their crops. So he flooded the village and soon it was underwater. Lord Krishna then came to their rescue by lifting the huge Govardhan Mountain on his little finger.

Bhai Dooj

Last day is called Bhai Dooj which celebrates the love of brother and sister. On this day, women pray to God for the long and prosperous lives of their brother and apply ‘tilak’ on their foreheads. According to mythology, on this day Yamraj visited his sister Yami, where she welcomed him with an aarti, applied tilak and offered sweets. Moved by his sister’s love he declared that any brother who received ‘tilak’ from his sister shouldn’t be afraid of death.

Now, that you know the significance of the five days of Diwali, go ahead and take part in the rituals and celebrations this Diwali with great enthusiasm. But remember to play eco-friendly Diwali and avoid bursting crackers for the sake of our environment.

Wishing you all a Joyful & Safe Diwali!

Find Your New Home Which Is In Harmony With Beauty And Vastu!

Green open space, flowers-bordered walkways, patches of green tucked away, beautifully maintained parks, stepping out onto the dew-covered grass and invigorating environment.  Seems like a dream for most of us.
We all look for the places where we can find ultimate relaxation, comfort, and soul-satisfying atmosphere. No, we are not talking about some Ashrams or temples of Jaipur today. We are talking about our Home.
In the historical Jaipur city at one time the residents were only staying in the walled city but with the growing population, the city extended its wings to the open spaces.
Aananda_site_pics-2
Our home is a place that truly enhances the overall living experience. Along with premium housing, today’s millennial generation is focused on having a space that offers peace of mind and energetic vibes. We no more look for housing spaces but to a home that contributes to good health and wellbeing of the members living there and thus arises the need for Vastu compliant house. Because Vastu Shastra guides us on how to have a home with good vibes.
Do you know, every single room in your home evokes a particular feel?
A modern, minimalist and inviting décor and a little Vastu ensure all natural energies to bless us, be it- Drawing room, Bedrooms, Kitchen, living room, and Dining room?
1377242_208980359281022_531848852_n
The first impression is always the best impression. We all know that when we have a guest, it is our Drawing Room- that they see. We put emphasis on the perfect layout of our drawing room and designed it the way that will reflect our own style and bring comfort at the same time. The ideal location of the living room is to be directly linked to the main entrance without any obstruction.
For ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation- Bedroom-in our house is one place where we feel relaxed and at ease. Use of aesthetic colours, flooring, and furnishing creates a serene ambiance. It has to be plush and luxurious with built in wardrobes giving you ample space, so as to keep your bits and pieces out of sight, along with proper ventilation to soothe your senses. Ideally, the Bedroom in a south-west direction brings good health and prosperity. Avoid a bedroom in the north-east or south-east zone of the house as the former may cause health issues.
aananda-sample-flat-3
The Hub of Your Home- Kitchen is a place where the health of the entire family depends. The right food is prepared with access to the right amenities. More space equals less hustle! Your kitchen needs to have all the right kind of cabinets, racks, and shelves that should be neatly and carefully fitted. The most important essential is that it should be well-ventilated or natural ventilation is also a good idea.
kitcheb.jpg
Every corner of your house needs careful planning but Living Space to have natural light entering your home as it creates positive energy and gives joy to all. Nothing is quite as welcoming and relaxing as a well furnished and spacious classic living room. The reason we keep planters for our well being. The living room should face east, north or north-east. Alternatively, a north-west facing living room is also favourable.

For many it’s a dream to have space which is in perfect harmony with nature, the tranquil environs bring forth a fresh breath of air in early mornings and evenings.
A Garden has all the benefits to keep you healthy in many ways possible. Devoting some time in growing your own garden helps you remain stress-free, boosts your self-esteem, lowers your heart-related diseases, and most effective of all, it cures depression and mental illness.
garden.jpg
Post our long day at work it is very important to get some sort of relaxation. A swim or a gym or a movie is not a bad idea but who has the energy to go out. Consider having a miniplex or a clubhouse under your house, where you can go and indulge yourself to give your mind some relaxation and make your evenings merrier with facilities like a Spa, Gymnasium, Mini Theater, Swimming Pool, cafeteria and many fun indoor games all at one place.
