8 Cool Escapes To Beat The Heat

Jaipur experience all the season in their extremes. With the temperature being 46 degrees Celsius the heat is unbearable. But we, Jaipurites know how to enjoy the best of both worlds, no matter how extreme it gets. Summers in Jaipur is the warmest times usually extending from April till July. But summer is also that time of the year when we can socialize, unwind and relax cause summertime is vacation time. Most of the schools are on break and colleges are mostly inactive. Therefore, as soon as summer approaches we all start making plans for the vacations, deciding the next spot we want to visit, relishing over all things cool or having a water gun fight with your pals. Ah, summer is fun. But we all know Jaipur can get all heated up during summers and if you staying in the city like us then Jaipur Beat will help you beat this heat with these cool escapes.

1. Pool Parties

A pool party is always a good idea in summers, the best place to chill around with your family and friends. Splashing water all over the place and dancing to your favourite beats. Pink City has quite a few options for all the party-loving Jaipurites.

2. World Trade Park a.k.a my second home

Experiencing an electricity cut, worry not. “World Trade Park hai na yarr…” you can go there chill or hang out with your squad, have food at the court and enjoy the window shopping in the air-conditioned malls for as long as you want.

3. Water Park

Water Parks are an entertaining place to enjoy your break with your family and friends, you can have fun on exciting rides and slides. Pink Pearl is one the most popular water park in Jaipur and even has India’s first water Disco, though in recent times more water parks have come up in the Pink City which means more fun, you can spend your weekends with your family and friends at a water park and relax.

4. Hawa Mahal

OK! So this is one of my favourites from my childhood. Jaipur is known for its heritage all over the world. Thousands of people visit it around the year. Hawa Mahal is the spot you cannot afford to miss be you’re a tourist or a localite. Here’s why, Hawa Mahal’s architectural feature allows cool air from the Venturi effect to pass through, thus making the whole area more pleasant during the high temperatures in summer.

5. Jal Mahal

Talking about heritage with cool escapes, you cannot skip the list without Jal Mahal. Walking past the ‘Paal’ of Jal Mahal is how you want your day to end as it not only furnishes the cool breeze but also provides a picturesque sight.

6. Staying home and lazing around

Since its summer you get a chance to stick to your lazy bed/sofa and play games on your mobiles and laptops as your parents would be scared to send you outside due to the loo. And the best part is you can stay in your pyjamas the whole day, cause no leaving home.

7. Relish over ice cream/cold drinks

Who can say no to ice cream/cold drinks in summers? What are you even talking about, I survive on ice cream/cold drinks in summer.

Ice cream parlours in Jaipur serves many inviting flavours. Jal Mahal Ice Cream Parlor has some refreshing options on their menu that will make your taste buds go gaga with joy.

8. The perfect excuse to run through sprinklers in the garden

Remember when you were a kid and use to play with water balloons, relive those moments, let the child inside you jump out and run through the water sprinklers till you are drenched. It’s one of the best things about summers.

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.

IMG-20190513-WA0060.jpg

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.

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.

From travellers to locals, we all have seen these beauties and that really makes us proud of our heritage. But many are unaware that even modern architecture are adding to the architectural beauty, one of them is Pearl Academy of Fashion and Design. The city of Jaipur has a desert climate with average temperatures ranging from 30 to 50 ̊C through most of the year, the building of Pearl is designed in response to the excessive heat. This concept is inspired by Indo-Islamic architectural elements. The students who are interested in fashion and design can visit the campus that has garnered global recognition to Jaipur.

The Pink City is famous for its heritage and Pearl Academy adds a pinch of modernity to it. Let’s check out a few facts about this modern architecture.
