Techno Fans Popping Up In Jaipur !

“I don’t like music”- said no one ever.

With all the genres of music taking hold in our city with celebrity concerts and band performances every now and then, the newest one popping up is the ‘Techno Music.’ And now, we have an exclusive techno fest for the same!

Earlier this year a techno fest called “Locals DISTRICT” celebrated its first edition of techno madness at Castle Kalwar with all kinds of laser and light show, 72 hours non-stop dancing to the techno rhythms, camping and what not!

We Jaipurites are welcoming new cultures, all kinds of traditions and choices in music and dance forms with open arms; from classical music to Electronic Dance Music, Psychedelic to Punk and romantic to metal music. One such unique genre is Techno music which is being welcomed by Jaipurites with all the love and excitement.

With an increasing craze for the frenzy all around, Techno music finds its own set of audience that loses itself to the feel and fun of this form of technological spirituality.

Engulf In The Five F’s Of Navratri

Navratri Sthapna marks the beginning of the festive season and for the next month or so, it is all about food, festivity, faith, fasting and a lot of fun! Navratri brings a new zeal with itself and there is a wave of new beginnings all around.

Jaipur Beat brings you the five F’s of this beautiful season of love, happiness, colours and light.

  1. Faith– The first and foremost thing that Navratri is about- Maa Durga’s love and blessings. The elaborate ‘puja’ and ‘havan’ during the Navratras cannot be forgotten. Moreover, it’s that time of the year when we finally start visiting the temples quite often due to Navratri. Visiting Amer’s Shila Mata temple is the most important #ThingsToDO which every Jaipurite tries to achieve ditching the tight schedule.

  1. Fasting- It’s the first question we ask – Are you on fast? That’s the most important part of Navratri. Some do it for faith, some to meet out their weight loss goals, and some do it for de-toxication but some like us are always after the best Falahaari delights. No matter the reason, we all believe in fasting and choose to instil some healthy eating habits during these nine days of Navratri.

  1. Food– Even though Navratri is about fasting, yet food is the constant love. We always find substitutes for what we cannot eat during Navratras. From fruit- chaat to Saabudana Khichdi and Kuttu Ki Puri we keep all the sweet to salty options at hand. And for those who are not fasting, festive season brings a new enthusiasm for the same old spicy food.

  1. Festivity- There is an air of festive mood in the weather with all the festive discounts, shopping spree, family functions and wedding functions lining up. You can see light and decorations wherever you turn your head.

 IMG_9658

  1. Fashion- Last but not least, fashion always makes the place for itself when it comes to the festivity. We have all tip-topped ourselves with glittery Gujarati or Rajasthani lehengas and Angrakhas some time or the other for the epic Garba and Dandiya night or even taking out our traditional Indian outfits.

The best time of the year is right here. Let’s enjoy it to the most!

Wishing you all a very Happy Navratri ! 🙂

Reviving the Lost Art of Blue Pottery

From booming Jaipuri prints to authentic leather jootis, Kathputlis, and stone carving to glittering lac bangles, Jaipur has always been a hub for handicrafts and traditional arts.

blue pottery_14.jpg

Having travelled through the generations of royal art and culture is one of the most prolific arts of our Jaipur city, the art that encapsulates the spirit of painting, carving and moulding altogether; Blue Pottery. Embellished in floral motifs and beautiful hand-drawn designs with natural colours and substances, Blue Pottery is one of a kind traditional art of Jaipur.

blue pottery.jpg

We have all heard about it, seen it, bought it and used at home for décor as well as for culinary purposes, but it is a rarely known fact that the amazing art of Blue Pottery is a handicraft and all the items are totally handmade.

blue pottery_9

Emerging from Persian Chinese roots, Blue Pottery was introduced in India by Maharaja Mansingh I and was carried on by his ascendants. This unique art of making colourful earthen wares is exclusive to our city Jaipur but is losing its identity day by day. Jaipur Beat took an initiative to talk about and try to revive such lost arts of our beloved city Jaipur.

blue pottery_7.jpg

Team Jaipur Beat visited the Blue Pottery Art Centre of Jaipur and tried to look deeper into the making of blue pottery items.

blue pottery_12

The raw material used to make blue pottery items includes quartz, glass, rock salt, and natural gum from trees. The first three ingredients are finely churned in a traditional manual ‘chakki’ to ensure that the powder is grinded finely. Then the gum is added to the powder to make a paste that is put into different moulds. The paste is then left to set in the moulds for some time and a white coating is done on the items. Later they are run through the furnace where the chances of breakage are 60%!

blue pottery_1.jpg

And now this is where the real magic happens! The brown colour on the earthenware turns to sky blue with the rising temperature and further to a darker shade of blue and we finally get the traditional blue pottery items.

blue pottery_3.jpg

Blue pottery is not just limited to the making of pots and dishes, but it’s almost like you name it and it’s possible. From chandeliers to bathroom tiles and soap dispensers, showpieces of all kinds to bottles and corks, lamps and lucky charms, everything is available in breathtaking designs in blue pottery with different flowers, animals and other designs hand-painted on them.

So in this festive season, you know what to do about re-decorating your home.

Where to find blue pottery in Jaipur?
