Jaipur’s Bond With Monsoon

With monsoon knocking the doors, heaven has been opened up on Jaipur with those droplets of joy. A rainy season is in every way so amazing, so pleasing and so upbeat! Those washed up plants with magnificently beautiful appearance, that amazing fragrance of wet soil never fails to blow our minds. To make the most out of this beautiful phenomenon of nature we at Jaipur Beat have a list of things to do while it’s pouring outside.

Long Drive

Even if you avoid travelling in a car, it’s the time to change that. Get that car of yours out of the garage, and get geared up for a long drive in rain.  Get an experience, which is beyond imagination and pleasing as well.

P.S.: Be careful of the potholes while driving.

Rain shower

It’s time to relive our childhood, remember how much you loved dancing in the rain? After all who doesn’t love a rain shower? Frankly, we are fonder of rain showers than our regular indoor shower. And who said we’ve grown up? So go ahead, and soak yourselves up and re-cherish your lives.

P.S.: Don’t forget to take a regular indoor shower afterwards.

Chai and Pakode

The forever perfect baarish partners. As soon as the droplets of rain touch the soil, the petrichor hits our noses; we immediately start craving a kadak chai along with garm-garm pakode with hari chutney. Yum!

Get Set On A Date

How amazing would it be to enjoy a nice supper or maybe just a plain simple coffee with the person you love with the rain pouring in the background?  Rain and romance go hand in hand after all.

P.S.: Don’t forget to put a bunch of some old romantic melodies on your playlist for the occasion.

Forresta

Chase the artist within.

We have often seen artists bringing out their best work while it rains in movies. Well, it’s not just the movies; people actually find peace in rain and hence are more creative. So go ahead, scribble, draw, paint, play or sing whatever it is just let the artist within show their magic!

5 Things That Jaipur Roads Say After Monsoon Showers

A six lane golden quadrilateral which covers around 47 metropolitan cities, Jaipur is among one of them, is not easy to maintain. Jaipur itself has a well connected road system connecting almost all small districts, but with the onset of monsoon the roads speak for themselves.

  1. Daag Ache Hai

Just in case you fall in one of those pits, or someone splashes some keechad on your clothes, just close your eyes and say ‘daag acche hai’ 😀road

  1. Ae Bhai Zara Dekh Ke Chalo!

Stagnant water on the roads with people stuck in the middle is definitely a joy to see. It’s difficult to locate even the gaddhas on the road and you tend to fall, listen carefully to the road singing to you ‘ae bhai zara dekh ke chalo’!road

  1. Once upon a time I was a pakka road, or that’s what you thought.

It was so smooth to drive and enjoy, but all good things come to an end 😉 road

  1. Aise na mujhe tum dekho, seene se laga lunga 😉

Don’t even try to stare at the bumpy roads, you never know when they are in a mood to hug you tight 😀JB road

  1. Ruk jana nahi, tu kabhi haar ke.

The water filled road, definitely makes you stop and think twice. But don’t stop stepping out as walking/riding/driving on these roads is an experience in itself !road

Let’s Play Safe during Monsoon!

The rains are here to stay for a while and so is the mood for hot, spicy snacks. Street food like pani-puri, bhel-puri and sandwiches may tempt you, but these are foods that you simply must stay away from in the monsoons.

 

This is because monsoon is the time for germs and bacteria which thrive in the unhygienic roadside eateries. As a rule you should avoid eating raw foods during the rains, refrigerate leftovers immediately, wash the vegetables used to make salads thoroughly and clean leafy vegetables with care. Above all, try to keep eating out during the monsoons at an absolute minimal.

Instead enjoy roasted corn, homemade Pakoras or drink hot soups.

Roasted Corn is especially delicious when you add spices to the ear of corn after roasting it. The  spices liven up the flavors and add an interesting spin on basic roasted corn. Nothing can beat hot cup of soup with crispy pakoras during rainy days :)

 

Let’s play yourself safe with following tips:

  • Keep yourself hydrated
  • Have a balanced diet
  • Eat clean, fresh food
  • Keep monsoon ailments at bay
  • Avoid puddles
  • Exercise and rest during monsoon
  • Loose, cotton clothes are the best during monsoon.
  • It is advisable to avoid jeans as they do not dry quickly.
  • Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly, particularly leafy vegetables and cauliflower
