The festival of Eid is celebrated with enthusiasm and devotion all around Jaipur, but the celebration inside the walled city… ka andaaz, hai kuch khas…especially of Ramganj.

Ramganj Market at night

Ramganj is remarkably crowded during the days around Eid. It becomes a flea market during Ramadan. They are decorated like a bride, where shopkeepers entertain the enthusiast shoppers from dusk till dawn. The streets thronged with rozedaars (people who observe fasting) and the shoppers are welcomed right after Iftar and are served till Sehri (Shoor) specially prepared delicacies. The markets are full of hustle bustle throughout the nights as if Jaipur has shifted to a nocturnal schedule for a month. An experience you wouldn’t get anywhere else.

Screen Shot 2019-06-05 at 2.07.23 PM.png

 

Chaand Raat– Chaand Raat or ‘Night of Moon’ confirms that the holy month of fasting has ended. On the supposed last day of Ramadan, people right after iftar get on their roofs/terraces eagerly trying to spot the crescent moon in the deep sky. Sighting of the moon confirms Eid the next day.

The following day celebrations kick starts as the day of Eid-Ul-Fitr when all the Muslims are decked up in special Eid look adorned in best of their dresses and start their day with Eid namaz.

Eid ki Namaz
Jaipur’s Jama Masjid and Eid-Gah along with all other masjids in the pink city host the special namaz. Eid namaz is a mandate on every member of the community – man or woman. Since time immemorial, Eid-Gah hosts the Namaz and other masjids, but very few Jaipurites are aware of the fact that every year Eid, namaz is also done at Ram Niwas Bagh at a small scale, where women have also been attending the prayer for many years now. At Eid Gah where thousands of people pray together is a sight to behold.

A haven for the book worms of the city – Jaipur Book Lovers.

Someone once correctly said, “Books are man’s best friends.” Books have so much to give and never ask for anything in return from us. They are the powerhouse of knowledge and wisdom. Therefore, a person who loves reading books can never feel lonely or bored, because they have found peace in solitude from reading books. A good book can lift up our mood instantly while also leaving a deep impact on us. Jaipur has produced many good writers and also hosts various literature events round the year; which are widely attended by enthusiastic readers of Pink City. Nowadays, the book club culture is gaining popularity, and there is one such exemplary club which has been providing a manifesto to the Pink City’s bibliophiles. If you didn’t already know who we are talking about, well you are about to find out…

IMG-20190513-WA0038.jpg


Jaipur Book Lovers is a free membership club of Jaipur-based book lovers which seeks to act as a platform for all book lovers and provide them a platform for discussions on books/author-related themes. The start of Jaipur Book Lovers dates back to September 2014, as a MeetUp group.

The admirable factor about Jaipur Book Lovers is that folks of all age-groups are embraced, the youngest member is a 9 year old while the oldest is a 76 year old. For them, age is just a number. What unites all the members together is the fondness of reading books and their fervent desire to share this passion. The profile of JBL members is quite diverse from university professors to retired IAS officers as well as people serving as administrative officers to young students. Jaipur Book Lovers is a forum for all book readers and promotes long-term reading. Members of the club come regularly to the MeetUps, because these get-togethers give quality reading recommendations to help rekindle the members’ romance of reading or simply to be amongst a group of kindred spirits.

Maahi Roj: A One of its Kind Eco-Festival

Maahi Roj: Earth Day started with a Seed, imagined by Geetanjali Kasliwal to grow around World Earth Day. Her vision was to celebrate and preserve our earth not just on one particular day but it should be celebrated every day. In fact, the word Maahi Roj literally means “EARTH DAY EVERYDAY”. The 10-day celebration hosted by AnanTaya is from April 19 to 29th, 2019 with this year’s theme WATER: The energy force of Nature.
