Reminiscing the Zeal of Eid-Ul-Fitr | Jaipur Beat

Every year in Jaipur the festival of Eid brings excitement among the people. The hearts are filled with excitement and souls with devotion. Saddly this year due to lockdown the markets are empty and everyone is celebrating in their home only. But to be honest it doesn’t matter where you celebrate until and unless you are offering your prayers from the heart. So, let’s pray to almighty for the well being of everyone and that this tough times comes to an end soon but at the moment go back to the memory lane to experience the zeal of Jaipurites during this time of the year-

Every year the markets are crowded and every alley is filled with shoppers. Ramganj market during the month of Ramadan becomes a flea market like none other. The shops welcome their customer right after the Iftar, when people pour in for the entire night till sehari, the meal that is eaten before the dawn.

On Eid, the Jama Masjid of Jaipur along with all the other mosques of the city hosts a special namaz for Eid where every male member of each family come and offer their prayers and gratitude to the almighty Allah. The women of the house offer their namaz from home itself. But this year everyone will offer namaz from their home only.

Sewai

Gladly even during during lockdown some rituals remain the same like the delightful aroma of various delicacies prepared during this time can still be experienced coming from every Muslim household. Women in every house put all their heart in and prepare different dishes out of which the most savoring is sewaiyan , a sweet dish made with milk and with a lot a significant amount of dry fruits, specially Chuaras  (dried dates) to give the sweet dish a colour and ghee giving it a rich texture. The sweet dish is especially associated with Eid-ul-fitr and is loved by almost everyone.

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.

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.

Jaipur soaked in the celebration of the holy month of Ramadan!

The blessed month of Ramadan is right upon us. As per the Islamic calendar, the Holy month of Ramadan begins on the sighting of the new crescent moon.

The month-long observance — which starts from today will see Muslims fasting from dawn to sunset, reciting verses from the Quran and attending prayer sessions.

Ramadan

Those in Jaipur can smell festivity in the air and devotion on faces because it’s just the beginning of the month of Ramadan! Observed annually by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (sawm), Ramadan is followed by the entire Muslim community to get closer to God and live the life of the less fortunate ones. It is also a time of joy and for spending time with one’s family, and also shopping.

Ramadan 5

Did you know that the word Ramadan comes from the Arabic root ramida or ar-ramad, which means scorching heat or dryness? Because the time right now is of peak summer and that makes this fasting even more difficult and challenging to follow. Though Ramadan is followed and celebrated in all the areas of Jaipur, the festival’s real sheen is seen in the walled city, especially Ramganj Bazaar. The market was named Ramganj after Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II who was the one to bring modernization in the architecture of Jaipur. The name Ramganj, Ram + Ganj (meaning area) reaffirms that this area is the soul of the city as it houses the oldest mosques that smoothly blend in the wise architecture of the walled city of Jaipur. Along with a plethora of mosques, the city’s most authentic Mughal cuisines are found in Ramganj Bazaar and the nearby lanes (galiyan). Ramganj Bazaar is equivalent to the Char Minar of Hyderabad & Jama Masjid of Delhi.

But how exactly do they go about fasting?

Every Muslim, mostly after he/she turns 12, considers it their farz (duty) to fast during Ramadan but are excused in case of exceptional circumstances like illness, pregnancy, travel etc. Ramadan is the fourth pillar of Islam and is practised in reverence of Allah. The month generally consists of 29-30 days depending on the visual sightings of the crescent moon and all the followers follow the timetable of Mecca. They eat before 3 a.m. and post that, they don’t eat or drink anything throughout the day, including water. The meal that they have in the morning is called Sehri. As the day proceeds, they recite namaaz at mosque (masjid) in the evening and at around 7:15 pm i.e. after sunset, they open their fast with something natural like fruits, dates (khajur), milk, water – basically anything which isn’t cooked over fire. Dates are popularly eaten to open the roza for their different quality of providing instant energy after a day full of fasting. The meal served in the evening is called Iftaar.

Ramadan 2

It was in the holy month of Ramadan on the memorable night of Laylat al-Qadr that the Holy Quran was first revealed to humankind. Five daily prayers are observed every day from dawn to night. They are called: Fajr (dawn), Dhuhr (noon), Asr (afternoon), Maghrib (evening), and Isha (night).

Ramadan 3

After Iftaar, the devotees visit Masjid at around 9 p.m. where Quran is recited for about 1.5 hours, and all the people sit there listening to it. After 29 or 30 days, the Eid-Al-Fitr celebrations start in full swing where mosques are decorated, the lanes are dazzling in lights, and folks visit each other to wish and exchange sweets especially Sevayian Kheer as it’s also known as Meethi Eid. The night of spotting the moon and ending the fasts is known as ‘Chaand Raat’ or the night of the moon

eid.jpg

The end of Ramadan is also marked with the sighting of the crescent moon, denoting Eid-al-Fitr, which should be in the first week of June.

Ramadan 7

 

Ramzan Mubarak to you and your family! May Allah’s blessings be with you!

7 Things We Find During Diwali Cleanliness Drive At Home!

They say Diwali is all about lights, festivity, and celebration. But is it just about that?

Diwali is also about cleaning the whole house like never before; it is also about nostalgia on finding out old stuff, and about remembering the old Diwali days. Jaipur Beat takes you on a trip to find the lost treasures that we only find out and remember about in “Diwali ki Safai”. Here follows a list of things that we find during our Safai Mania!

  • The Memories!

There are always some pictures from childhood that our parents took of us having made the mess. There are also the pictures from family trips to hill stations or simply to Amber Fort in Daddu’s lap or papa’s shoulders. Good times!

elephant-ride-1

  • The Money

We all have that secret place for keeping extra cash that we never told anyone about. Moreover, we ourselves forgot about having kept it there! And Tada! It pops out of nowhere during Diwali Safai.

  • Toys

Those childhood treasures, miniature cars, teddy bears, dolls, planes and whatnot. Those toys are just there to stay and be admired year after year, and you smile thinking about the tantrums you used to throw at losing them for the shortest span of time.

  • Clothes

The long forgotten dress that used to be your favourite but you grew out and eventually forgot about it. It’s about time you donate them at the Mother Teresa Home or Neki ki Deewar in Jaipur

neki ki deewar

 

 

  • Home Décor Items

Year after year we buy new stuff to decorate our house on Diwali, and the old stuff just gets dumped in the storeroom, only to be noticed on next Diwali safai!

  • Cards

Birthday cards, wedding cards, written letters and messages that you kept under the mattress and forgot about.

  • Trivial things

That lost jewellery piece that you kept safely in your drawer only to take it out now, or the coins and pennies in nooks and corners.

Diwali is the biggest festival of the year and the most exciting one too, but the “Diwali Safai” also has its own advantages, that bring along a lot of things that we loved and lost, or forgot about during the year!

Did you start your Diwali Safai yet? What did you find? Let us know in comments!

Let’s Celebrate Teej With Great Zeal In Jaipur

The hues of love, culture and beauty mingled with the tints of heritage, handicrafts and a grand legacy brought down the generations. You are pink, I am pink; for pink is the color that this city leaves in our hearts forever. Jaipur, also known as the ‘Pink City’ was founded by Maharaja Jai Singh II in November, 1727. Known worldwide for its rich culture and architectural beauty, Jaipur is the largest city of Rajasthan, and its capital too. What makes it different from all other cities is its deeply rooted heritage that houses in itself not just the beauty of traditions and different art forms but also paves way for technological and architectural advancements. Whether it is about festivals or food, travel and tourism or corporal sector, Jaipur has a niche for every possible genre.

Teej festival.jpg

The months of July and August are the most prismatic ones in Jaipur. The city looks dipped into and drunk on rainbows. With the petrichor mixing in with the amazing fragrance of our favourite ‘chai and pakode’ comes again the most voraciously celebrated festival of ‘Teej’. Teej is one of the most colourfully celebrated festivals in Jaipur. It’s all about women dressed in jazzy leheriya, patricoloured lehengas, ‘Mehendi ki khushbu’ and ‘Saawan ke jhule’. And when it comes to Teej, how could we forget our favourite Malai Ghewar!

sawan ke jhoole.jpg

Teej falls on the third day after new moon. Teej as a festival is celebrated three times during the Indian month of Shravan, namely Hariyali teej, Kajli Teej, and Hartalika Teej. Badi Teej is celebrated with great zeal and pomp in our Jaipur city. Married women fast for the day and pray to Goddess Parvati for the long lives of their husbands and children. Young girls put on vibrant lehangas and leheriya sarees and enjoy the swings under lush green trees. As magnificent as this festival is, it keeps an immensely important place in the hearts of Jaipurites. We celebrate it with all kinds of food and festive preparations. Jaipur’s Teej celebration is not only famous across the nation, but also known across the globe for its enlivening and pulsing rituals, and traditions.

Teej.jpg

The very famous Rajasthani dessert ‘Ghewar’ is the authentic food associated with Teej. Other savoury dishes associated with Teej are ‘Malpua,’ ‘Kesar Jalebi,’ and ‘Mirchi Pakode.’ The mere thought of a kesar jalebi or a delicious malpua melting in our mouths is enough to get us high on love for this festival!

ghevar.jpg

Besides the amazing excitement among common people for Teej, every year the Rajasthan Tourism carries out a pageant procession that passes from various areas of the old city of Jaipur including Tripolia Bazar, Chaugan Stadium  and Talkatora. Rajasthani folk dances, palanquins, tableaux, vividly ornamented elephants and drama are different parts of this vibrant pageant that takes place on the day of Haryali Teej. Scores of Jaipurites along with national as well as international tourists turn up to enjoy the festivities of this grand pageant. Apart from the common spectators, it also attracts hundreds of photographers and videographers for the extravaganza. Teej Procession is one of the biggest pageant held in Jaipur, over the year.

Teej, for Jaipurites is not a mere monsoon festival, it is also a feeling of being tied to our colourful roots of Rajasthani tradition, that keep the beauty and avidity for culture alive year after year.

4.      Lesser Honking horns

One fine day getting on the streets of Jaipur you might feel that there is no space to walk but we are far better than the hustle-bustle of the metropolitan cities even though we are surrounded by highly developed metropolis cities.

5.      Jaipurites wear their culture on the sleeves

People think living in Rajasthan is living in an isolated barren desert which has nothing – no water, no liveliness. But we can prove you absolutely wrong. Jaipurites live a tradition, wear its clothes, eat its food, and speak its language. Being in Jaipur gives you an exotic taste of its Rajasthani culture. We bring color to lives by wearing bright, soothing, eye-appealing clothes.

6.      Elephants in place of cars (is it still there?)

Awestruck! Yes, elephants seen on the streets of Jaipur are no new thing for us. The road is to them like it is to us. You feel like an ant when near it but you equally can be on top of the world when you are in Jaipur!

7.      Be on the top of the world

We breathe fresh! We love to spend our weekends not lazing around in bed but getting up and climbing a mountain for a site worth seeing – Nahargarh or even sunrise at Jal Mahal.

8.      A sight to behold

Get up! Open your windows and what do you see – shout out loud ‘Aravallis’!

Don’t we all agree with this notion? Jaipur has been witnessing a vogue of festivals and carnivals since past ten years. However, this excitement is doubled when there’s a Food Festival in town. Mr Dushyant Singh who is the proud owner of the Cafe’ On The House, and the brain behind the unique culinary affair The Gourmet Getaway,  following the successful inaugural edition of The Gourmet Getaway Food Festival held in March 2017, is all set with a spanking new season which is to be held in January 2018. IMG_9316On 17th August 2017, Mr. Dushyant founder Gourmet Getaway, organized a pre-event brunch at On The House for city bloggers and food connoisseurs. Professional chefs with an experience of more than 15 years from Rambagh Palace and Leela group of hotels were responsible for making the meals a proper delight. In the upcoming Gala Food Festival, there’ll be a wide range of cuisines and emphasis will be paid on those dishes that are not easily available in town- Mr. Dushyant added.IMG_9298IMG_9317What a sheer bliss! We were truly delighted to experience food where the creativity and ingenuity was at its best. There were some spectacularly baked marcoons and the pesto parmesan cheese rolls were over the moon! They simply added to the ecstasy. The happiness after sinking teeth into these dishes was similar to what you feel when you realise the coconut from which you just drank water has malai in it or when you chug coke after eating dominos. Now you surely have understood how heavenly the food was. No doubt we are excitingly waiting for the next season just announced 🙂IMG_9306IMG_9327In a conversation with Jaipur Beat, Mr. Dushyant mentioned that the event will be organized in the first week on January. He further announced that this’ll be a never seen before feast where international chefs would also be invited.

There will be gala event at Nand Mahal and other events based on unique themes which will be scheduled at different times. The venue for these places will be separate and decided accordingly. Moreover, the event will focus on an open market concept. The target would be to promote small entrepreneurs to bring their ideas and specialities forward.
