With Wing Commander Abhinandan’s return, Jaipur relives the memories of our Hero from the pages of history

Famous for majestic forts and palaces, Jaipur has its own significance in terms of its brave warrior stories. The stories when Kings of Rajasthan were fighting with bravery at the battleground. Not to forget that the ultimate charm of Pink city lies in its brave stories of the bygone era.

People travel through this city and explore the heritage while hearing the legends of the brave heart of the city. The one such story is of HH Brigadier Sawai Bhawani Singh MVC of Jaipur’s royal family.

Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh was the last Maharaja of Jaipur, as the princely states dissolved at the time, he took the throne. The legacy of Jaipur royal family has been widely acclaimed around the world, but is in no way limited to palaces, Bhawani Singh Ji proved his mettle in the war against Pakistan in 1971. Bhawani Singh Ji commanded the 10th Parachute Regiment and captured Chacharo, Sindh, he pulled a crucial plug from Pakistan’s regime which ultimately led to India winning the war.

This was the biggest territorial conquest in terms of territory. The Chachro Raid of 1971 was Indian Army’s biggest Surgical strike in Pakistan for four days, the battalion infiltrated deep inside enemy territory and carried out raids on enemy positions. For his bravery and courage, the Maharaja was awarded the Mahavir Chakra.

Then were the times of newspapers, an article was published a day before his arrival to Jaipur after the war, about Bhawani Singh Ji arriving the next day. As Bhawani Singh Ji arrived at the Sanganer Airport, the people of Jaipur were overjoyed and welcomed him wholeheartedly, it took Bhawani Singh Ji the whole day as people all over Jaipur went out to congratulate him.

The people of Jaipur have always embraced bravery and patriotism, be it 1971 when Maharaja Bhawani Singh Ji came back to his home town Jaipur after capturing Chachro, or Abhinandan Varthaman’s homecoming in 2019. The blood of citizens of Jaipur will never run dry when it comes to celebrating the soldiers of India, every Jaipurite salutes the bravery of Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh Ji then and Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman now.  We have wholeheartedly celebrated the homecoming of our heroes.

Things No One Tells You About – Albert Hall Museum, Jaipur

Jaipur ! The name itself has a feeling attached to it. The vibrant colours, the rich culture, the famous monuments, and what not. The city is filled with anything and everything. Since Jaipur has a history attached to it and with history we always get reminded of our very favourite Albert Hall Museum. So today, we’re here to give you some quick facts about Albert Hall, that recently completed 133 years of its existence.

albert-dreamy

–          Did you know that Albert Hall’s fate was decided after laying down its foundation stone in 1876? Yes ! When the Prince of Wales, Albert Edward visited Jaipur back in 1876 it was supposed to act as a Government Building as Madho Singh I had planned. But it had something else in its destiny. Finally after a decade, Albert Hall was built and declared to be used as the State Museum that you see standing tall near Ram Niwas Garden.

albert-hall

–          The style that you see and admire every day and night while passing through the beauteous Albert Hall, is Indo- Saracenic form of architecture that has now become a source of reference for varied classical Indian styles of design.

albert-hall-night.jpg

albert-blue-sky

–          While you take a look at the corridors of the Museum, you will be surprised to see that they are decorated with murals that portray Chinese, European, Egyptian, Greek and Babylonian civilizations. If you want to get the essence of the rich architectural heritage, this is the place to be at!

albert hall_1

–          There are not many that knows about this, but Albert Hall Museum in the past year’s Durga Pooja was replicated at Jharpada Pandal in Odisha ! Bewildered to hear this, but it is true.

–          One of the greatest authors since time immemorial, Rudyard Kipling after seeing the magnetizing beauty of Albert Hall Museum said, “It is now a rebuke to all other museums in India from Calcutta downwards”.

We’re sure once you visit this splendor, you will be spellbound with the kit of pigeons flying around and the sight of horse cart standing right in front of the Museum that forms a perfect frame for your next Instagram post.

When in Jaipur, Eat like Jaipurites do!

Most travelers heading to Jaipur, are aware of the fact that Rajasthani dishes are awesome, but most, don’t have a local friend or relative to tell them exactly what to try. We have made a guide just for you folks who are traveling to Jaipur, in a hope that you get to try everything we locals’ love, and why Rajasthan, is called a foodie’s paradise.
With so many upbeat cafes and restaurants, it is confusing for travelers what to eat in Jaipur. Here’s a quick guide by Jaipur Beat.

Laal Maas

lal-maas
Laal Maas

Laal maas is a delectable dish originated from Rajasthan itself, you may find it some places outside of Rajasthan too, but the authentic taste of Rajasthan is hard to copy. The dish is eaten with Indian Breads (Bajra roti, Bejad Roti, Jungli roti, Roomali roti, and whatnot).

Ghewar

ghevar
Ghewar

This delectable dessert, also available topped with malai, is something we could die for. Ghewar is the epitome of all desserts, and remain the number one dessert of choice for everyone in Rajasthan.

Mirch ke Tapore, Besan Mirch

mirchi-ke-tapore.jpg
Mirch Tapore

These savory pickles are a feat in their own. Served as something like a side and achar, these are sure to take your breath away. Mirch Tapore and Besan Mirch resembles a lot in the green chili part but tastes worlds apart. Best thing undeniably is you will probably get both in every Rajasthani thali you order.

Dal, Bati and Churma

dal baati churma
Dal, Bati and Churma

The famous trio of Rajasthani cuisine, the humblest of them all, the most eaten too we guess. There are various Bati’s in the scene, there’s a Plain Bati, a Masala Bati, a Keema bati and many more. The Churma comes in 4 or 5 varieties as well, there’s simply nothing like Churma when it comes to Rajasthani desserts.

Bajra roti, Bejad roti.

screen-shot-2018-12-03-at-1-15.jpg
Bejad Roti

These Indian Breads add up on a different level to taste when combined with the famous flavorful Rajasthani dishes. For records, Bejad roti tastes heavenly with Aloo Pyaaz sabzi and Lasaan ki chutney and is a must try.

Aloo Pyaaz ki sabji and Lasaan ki Chutney

download.jpg
Lasaan Chutney

Aloo Pyaaz ki Sabji is the real-life manifestation of heaven. Even though Lasaan ki chutney is something you can probably associate with any dish, it just adds a level of sophistication to Aloo Pyaaz’s taste. The magic of this chutney is undeniable, that’s quite the reason you’ll pretty much find it in every Rajasthani thali and being sold loose in the shops too. It may seem easy to make at home, but the authentic Rajasthani Lasaan ki chutney is just too difficult to recreate.

Kachoris, Mirch vada, Samosas

jai-1.jpg
Samosa
mirchi-bada (1).jpg
Mirchi Vada

shree-ram-namkeen-bhandar.jpg
Kachori

We believe these three should be announced as the national breakfast and evening snack of India. The Rajasthani’s love for these is very very strong. The world-famous Kota kachori is something you’ll only find in Rajasthan, while authentic Samosas and Mirchi Vadas are hard to find outside Rajasthan. We bet you have all grown up eating these three on every Sunday morning, because we, definitely did.

Bajre ki khichdi

jb-bajra.jpg
Bajre ki khichdi

Bajre is khichdi is khichdi reinvented by Rajasthanis to taste a million times better, it’s served with jaggery, white butter and loads of ghee. Bajre ki khichdi is basically a winter dish and will keep you warm all winters long, all while making your taste buds dance.

This is only half the list and the next part is coming very soon. Till then, keep exploring and keep eating. 😉
