Jaipur Celebrates Eid-Ul-Fitr!

The moon has already been sighted and the auspicious occasion of Eid that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan is right here. The festivity of Eid-Ul-Fitr in Jaipur is in full swing, and we can smell it in the air. Jaipur is prepped up for Eid with clean houses and already shopped accessories. Eid-Ul-Fitr, also known as ‘Meethi Eid’ is celebrated all around the world by the Muslim community.

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.

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. Kids receive Eidi. These are gifts given to younger members of a family by their elders, in cash and kinds.

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 first meeting for JBL was held among four members at Chaisa Tea Café, and that was the start of an odyssey, from where the club has greatly evolved.

IMG-20190512-WA0043.jpg

Jaipur Book Lovers is now a club with 1,911 active members on its MeetUp page. JBL also has a vibrant community on Facebook as well as a lively social media presence. Twice every month, JBL organizes a MeetUp in a preferred café of the readers. JBL has also hosted author interactions at the prestigious Jaipur Literature Forum in Diggi Palace. JBL has also participated and hosted interactions during Jaipur Sufi Festival.

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.

Jaipur Book Lovers has organized various MeetUps on various topics from talking about books that have been converted to movies or books written on sports as well as books that are based on human psychology. JBL has also organized the interaction on many authors such as Ayn Rand. At Jawahar Kala Kendra, JBL hosted their 50th celebratory MeetUp which consisted of many book-related games and activities. Overall, JBL has organized 99 MeetUps and is now looking forward to organizing their 100thMeetUp, which is ready to roll on June 2nd at 05:00 P.M. in the Jawahar Kala Kendra.

Jewellery Trend that will rule for Spring Summer Brides

Jaipur, as we all know, is a city where big fat weddings take place. From the venue, food, decorations to bridal jewellery, everything has to be extravagant. Considering the harsh humid weather, Jaipur jewellers have come up with new jewellery trends for the brides to be in this season. So, get ready as Jaipur Beat reveals the Spring Summer Wedding Jewellery Trend for this year.

The recently concluded Jewellers Association Show left us floored with the stunning colours and hues available in the jewellery and gemstones section. Especially, for the hot Jaipur summer, light tones are making a lot of sense.

No doubt, the charm of timeless and traditional Kundan Meena will never fade away but the subtle and pastels are going to rule the world of gemstones in the upcoming Spring Summer wedding season of 2019. They will make for a delightful adornment that will give any Spring Summer Bride a refreshing look when paired with her bright coloured ensemble.

To all the brides who have been wondering how to look gorgeous on their wedding day- the Spring Summer trends are simple to follow-

1. Jaipur summers are hot, so remember if it’s a day ceremony, pair your ensemble with delicate petals & flowers motifs embellished with light-coloured gemstones. This will give a bright and breezy look. Isn’t this a classy way of showing off a bride’s beauty and youth.

2. Ditch heavy neckpieces instead choose a multi-strand necklace with pastel colour gemstones that are also Jaipurites’ favourite pick. This will look stunning for sure!

3. Your hand adornments shouldn’t just limit up to the bangles. Choose state of the art bracelets infused with light-coloured sapphire gemstones or the trendy haathphool

5. Red and Pink colours will always remain the brides’ favourite. Go with traditional colors but with a modern twist. Skip the traditional bangles and choose a bright and peppy watch for your wrist. The flowers add freshness to the looks of the bride.
