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.

Screen Shot 2019-06-05 at 2.07.23 PM.png

 

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.

Jaipur Hotels Spreading The Warmth Of The Festive Season With Traditional Cake Mixing Ceremonies!

Just as the Sawan is the month for devouring into Rajasthani delicacy Ghewar, the start of harvest season in the month of November is the time for the preparation for traditional cakes. The festival of engulfing into mouthwatering Christmas cakes is just a month away and Jaipurites live by all the traditions and cultures with great zeal. The preparation for traditional cakes has already begun in the city. Every hotel is catching on with the trend of Cake Mixing Ceremony enthusiastically.

christmad fever_i love jaipur.jpg

History- Cake mixing ceremony is a part of age-old traditions. During the harvest month, lots of fruits and nuts were harvested and the same were used in the making of traditional plum cakes.  The ingredients of the cake are mixed in advance so that at the time of Christmas they can develop aroma and taste. When the soaking period is over then these fruits are sent for the final mixing and cake baking procedure.

The Christmas cake mixing ceremony is a great way to celebrate happiness and spirit associated with the great event of Christmas. Let’s see where in Jaipur the Cake Mixing ceremony was held or about to happen so that you can get a chance to be a part of the social fare.

  • Rambagh Palace- The traditional Christmas cake mixing recently took place at the iconic Steam restaurant of Rambagh Palace. The in-house guests, as well as the socialites of Jaipur, participated in the ceremony with verve and gusto. Clad in aprons, Santa caps and gloves – the guests had a field day mixing ‘spirits’ with fruits and nuts. Then the mixture was tossed and turned till they were drenched in the spirit. Christmas décor, psychedelic music as well as sumptuous drinks and snacks added immensely to the gaiety of the event.

  • Café Samsara- Situate in the Royal Heritage Haveli, Cafe Samara had a funfilled Christmas cake mixing ceremony.

  • Four Points By Sheraton- All set to for mixing a melange of exquisite flavours for the finger licking and lip smacking cake. Join them on 19th November.

This Diwali, Let’s Keep Our Culture Alive!

Preserved and passed on for generations, the elixir of living the life and the footprints of our ancestors, the culture, the traditions and the zeal of life. Diwali is not just about a festival in our country. It is more about heritage, and its preservation.

On Diwali we celebrate the return of Ram from 14 years of exile, and growing up, Diwali was all about lighting up diyas, cooking sweet Indian delicacies, sparking fire crackers, and worshipping Lord Ganesha and goddess Laxmi. With the change in time and tradition, we are losing the grip on soul of this festival. Here are a few things we all need to turn back to this Diwali!

  1. The Elaborate Diwali Pooja- The elaborate Diwali pooja always used to be a family affair but now it is also losing its value to us. The conventional ways of celebrating Diwali started by pooja are changing with most of the youngsters migrating to different cities for education and job. We should learn to pray on our own if we cannot reach home on Diwali. 🙂

puja2

  1. Sweets– Where there is celebration, there has to be sweets, but nowadays we are turning towards chocolates and other dessert options that are known to be #gluttonfree #cholesterolfree #fatfree and whatnot. We are forgetting that the delicious recipes of homemade sweets like laddus, gulabjamun, barfi, halwa, mathri, etc. that have been handed down to us by our nani and dadi are much healthier and delightful in every sense.

doodh-ka-ladu.jpg

  1. New Clothes- The zeal of the festival Diwali needs to be kept alive with new clothes, because Diwali also marks a new beginning, the end of evil and the victory of the good. We promise you that you are going to have a worthy stock of pictures for Instagram with a new ethnic attire.

ethnic wear_1.jpg

  1. Cleaning our homes- Scientifically, it is a good idea to clean your house around mid-October and mid-November because after the monsoon, cleaning makes sure all the germs and infectants are eradicated from the house.

diwal decorations

Although, religiously it is believed that goddess Laxmi visits the homes of devotees on the night of Diwali to bless them with happiness, luck and prosperity for the rest of the year. Therefore, we illuminate and decorate our houses with diyas, lights and rangoli.

diwali-decorations.jpg

  1. Firecrackers- Burning of firecrackers also carries a scientific logic behind itself apart from the celebration. The heat produced in the environment due to burning of the crackers makes sure that all the disease causing microbes are removed from the environment after the end of monsoon. But the perpetually increasing pollution restricts us from doing so, and we can opt for lighting mustard oil diyas for the same effect.

jb-crackers-2.jpg

So this Diwali, let’s make a promise that we are not going to feel guilty about having an extra gulab jamun, or bursting the fire crackers, that we are not going to wear that old comfortable jeans, rather try a slightly uncomfortable but new dress; that we are going to make sure our houses are spick and span before Diwali. Let’s make a promise to preserve the enriched culture handed down to us by our ancestors.

Happy Diwali!

5 ‘Little Things’ will make you fall In Love with JAIPUR’s Winter!

The most pleasant time of the year is right here when not just the Jaipurites but the tourists from all over the world throng to Pink city.

Let us take you to those little things that make winter one of the favourite seasons for the locals as well as for those who travel to Jaipur.

mornings

The feeling of winter mornings that start with a warm sunlight to afternoon sunbathing with family whilst devouring our favorite moongfali and santara, sipping tea from the corner wala thela, marching out in the most fashionable leather jacket during pleasant evenings and finally getting cozy in the warm blanket as the night falls are few most cherished things that we all enjoy.

Wait. That’s not it. The thought of festivals and vacations at this time of the year makes this period even more special.

Here are the Five little things that make this season more joyful.

  1. Change is all around us

The mundane summers and the long sunny sweltering afternoons no longer deprive us of going outside for a long spell. The weather is just perfect; offering a perfect mix of sun and clouds. The soft morning mist mingling with the early morning light and the little dew drops falling on the leaves give us the most dramatic scape to be witnessed as soon as we leave our beds. Feel it while taking a morning walk at Rambagh Golf club, Central Park, Smriti van or to any other park.

2. The Festival Season

The Pink city has always been synonymous with festivals and colours. The festivals make it worth to experience this season in all its glory. The aura of festivity starts from Diwali celebration in Jaipur when the city is dressed in its beautiful best.

Then comes the fascinating World famous Pushkar Fair carrying along the true essence of Rajasthani culture and vibrant colours of dessert exuding absolute delight.

As you are back from delightful desert land, the glittering Jaipur Jewellery Show-JJS welcomes you, followed by an unparalleled melting pot of amazing thoughts, great thinkers and minds, and the JLF music stage at the Jaipur Literature Festival giving us some serious fashion ticks. How could you miss our passion for kite flying making the sky a colourful canvas?

We bet no other city has this much to offer in just one season.

3. Time to Gorge on Season’s Treats 

Winter and winter delicacies walk hand in hand. When you’re in Jaipur, nothing compares to the pleasures of indulging in winter delicacies that offer a variety of veg and non-veg choices. From warming yourself on a wintry day with some Garma Garam Doodh Jalebi at Saras Parlour or the piping hot samosas at Shankar, winter months are much awaited to savour Gajak, Ladoos, Bajre ki khichdi, kadhai Ka doodh, Malpue, Dal ke Pakore, Moong Dal Ka halwa and variety of irresistible egg joints. Streets full of amazing winter delicacies make us forget about all our weight loss resolutions.

4. It’s time for Band Baja Baraat

wedding in jaipur.jpg

The beautiful backdrop of forts and palaces become more pretty when decked up under the open sky in winters. Thus, the wedding planners and pandits are set for the winter wedding packages. Not just those coming for destination weddings, there is always some or the other member of the family who is getting married in winter months allowing us to do a lot of winter shopping and dressing later 😉

5. Atithi Devo Bhava

Last but not least, we love it to have guests at home this season. As this is the best time to take them on a city tour, from climbing up to Amber or Nahargarh to walking on the streets- everything seems so much of fun when compared to doing the same activities in the sweltry and humid harsh summers. So, if you want to visit your family and friends who are in Jaipur, kindly make a note that this is the season when they will happily welcome you.

Aren’t we so fortunate to be able to live in a place where we have this liberty to enjoy all the seasons and can actually see it happen how weather changes slowly and beautifully each day?
