9 Places in Jaipur That Used To Be Everyone’s Favourite Spot

There is no denying the fact that the older days were gold and we used to love when things were exciting at those 8-9 routine places where we used to chill with our friends and family. Not that we don’t love the present hanging out spots, it’s just that some places capture your heart in a truly unforgettable way. Let’s take a look back at those places in Jaipur that were everyone’s favourite, for a classic dose of nostalgia.

  1. Archies

Buying a gift from Archies was so much fun when online brands hadn’t taken over. It was every kid’s dream place, quite literally.

  1. Planet M

The best part about the 90s? Hell yeah! The idea of buying selected CDs, based on the money we had was incomparable because it maintained that excitement level for the songs/movies we were purchasing.

  1. Fun City

Remember that time when going out with friends meant going to Fun City? And not only that, when winning a huge teddy from there was the only goal in life (no kidding!)?

  1. Scary House at Triton

Everyone visited that really scary Scary House because of the buzz it had created. Honestly, if you’ve ever been there, know that you were very cool.

  1. Saheb Sindh Sultan

Known as “that classy train-wala restaurant”, this place in CP was majorly where everyone used to take their families to for a mind-blowingly fancy Indian feast.

  1. Olives

We don’t know about you, but this was definitely the best restaurant in C-Scheme according to us. The quality and range of the food offered were fabulous and unbeatable.

  1. Chanakya Restaurant

Famous for its vegetarian food, this place was the most exciting place with its big garden and restaurant that whenever relatives visited, people used to take them here.

  1. Fresh Flavours

90s kids know how big a deal celebrating their birthday here was. Located near Hot Bread, this place was always seen lit up with so many people inside.

  1. Milky Way

Before Naturals and Molly Moo opened, craving for an ice-cream meant going to Milky Way. It was the ideal spot to binge eat creamy snacks.

 

Now who is wishing to visit these places again?

How Sambhar Lake turned into a graveyard for 18,000 birds?

India’s largest Saline water lake Sambhar lake, i.e home to both native and migrant birds and also one of the best places in the country for bird watching is facing a severe wildlife tragedy. The devastating news of the mysterious death of more than 18,000 birds at Sambhar Lake came out as a shock to everyone. It was the villagers and birdwatchers that began to notice the decomposed carcasses of the birds early this month that gradually increased the numbers in thousands. And soon it caught the world’s attention.

chandlai.jpg

After the scientists did the research it was found out that the birds were infected by avian botulism. This is caused by a neurotoxin protein produced by bacteria named Clostridium botulinum. It was all because of heavy rain in July that the lake became brimful with water leading to a reduction in its salinity. So, when the water evaporated and filtrated into dry soil, across the edges of the lake it increased the salinity. Hence, the low-levels of saline water provided an ideal location for the manifestation of botulism and that caused the death of thousands of birds.

The Chief Minister ordered to dispose of the carcasses appropriately so that it does not spread around the areas. And that precautionary step is being taken so that the migratory birds that migrate to Sambhar Lake during winters do not get infected.

Decoding the Significance of the Festival of Lights

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.

Diwali_Diya

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!
