Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak we are still travelling to Jaipur’s most iconic places. Are you? And no, we haven’t stepped out of our home also we can take you along with us. You ask how?
Now that everything has become virtual, why not travel to these places virtually!
Hop on people, cause we are about to embark on an adventurous journey to Jaipur’s 5 iconic places that would take you back to your good old memories.
Hawa Mahal, a monument, a memory, a landmark, the pride of Jaipur; a place you just cannot miss going to! Looking out of those windows of the wind palace your eyes stumble upon the shops on the busy streets and people walking by everything looked so lively.
As regal as can be, Jaipur’s magnificent Amer Fort rightly personifies the city’s Rajputana culture. This place vibrates with its legendary past and not to forget the Sound and Light show which is an exemplary saga of culture & heritage of Rajasthan.
On a beautiful day, when you think about hanging out with family/friends, the one spot that you always think of is Jal mahal palace! This Water Palace is definitely the most loved place to witness the glorious sunset with your loved ones.
Another iconic place of Jaipur and is loved by everyone even the directors of Rang De Basanti, Nahargarh. The view from Nahargarh Fort, which stands out on the hills of Aravali, is out of this world especially during night. It is definitely a rare sight that is worth visiting for!
Standing tall in the midst of Ram Niwas gardens, the front face of the Albert Hall is every spectator’s delight. In the evening the museum is covered in vividcolours which add to the charm and magic of the Albert Hall Museum. However, the most amazing sight is when a large kit of pigeons rests there and flies away giving an unforgettable picturesque view!!
Physical boundaries and lack of mental ventilation have kept us brooding and everything around appears boring. But we tend to forget that these days can be turned into exciting and fruitful by engaging ourselves in interesting stuff. Instead of dwelling on what all you’re missing out, think of this time as an opportunity to re-work on yourself and bring the best out of it. It may be stressful for many of you to stay at home the whole day, which is why Ankhee Gupta a phsychological counsellor and a stress mahangement expert has listed some interesting things for you to joyfully sustain your home quarantine.
Here are a few things to combat confinement- stress and stay mentally stable :
If the number of death rates, positive cases (about the virus) is taking a toll on your mind, practice ‘gadget distancing’. Use your phone, watch the television, check facts and statistics but maintain a gap by keeping the phone away for a few minutes at intervals- this reduces your anxiety level.
If you are used to evening walks or gym which is not possible now, resort to exercise, stretching, meditation and yoga at home. These help to secrete endorphins, the ‘happy hormones’.
There must be a hobby which you might have given up for your busy schedule, this is a wonderful time to revisit them! Engage in productive and creative activities atleast thrice in a week to nurture your mental health.
Rebuild your social circle. This is the time for verbal interaction with family members and strengthening your immediate circle. It is surely a feel good factor.
Long working hours and swift weekends! Now is the time for self-care, hair and body care, time to declutter the places you always wanted to! Pull out an old family album or a diary of memories.
This is the time for prayers, music, self-analysis and care for humanity in general. Things practiced during this time can reap benefits in the future.
Keep following these. Stay home , stay healthy but don’t panic. Just make use of the days you are spending indoors. Physical health care and mental health care will make things easier and better.
The decision of lockdown might stop the spread of coronavirus but it has brought some drawbacks with it. It got us all thinking about how will we get everyday supplies? Although the departmental stores will be open but it is not safe to step out as every other human being will be there to buy stuffs for them. Hopefully there are some people who have come forward in delivering supplies like medicines, food, groceries and many more at our door steps. Even people have teamed up to deliver food to those who can’t afford it. Kudos to these people for showing humanity at this point of time!

If you know any such home delivery, do let us know.
From the past few weeks, we have been listening to and saying the heavy-duty terms like isolation, social distancing, self-quarantine, and lockdown. Most of which are quite new to the people and not knowing what it means may result in ignorance and may not take it very seriously.
As the cases of COVID-19 are rising, it’s time that we once again awaken you and help you all understand that what these terms mean and why is it so important to practice these concepts- the only way to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
At this critical time, everyone should be practicing social-distancing, which means to avoid a physical encounter with other people to decrease the transmission risk. Refrain from forming or joining larger groups of people. Completely stop going to the movie theatre, concert, sports events, religious occasions, offices, mall and all sorts of non-essential social gatherings.
This doesn’t mean you have to sit at home all day; you could work from home, attend online classes, go to a grocery or go for a walk but with precautionary measures and must avoid interacting in groups or a sick person. So, this for the people who aren’t showing any symptoms of COVID-19 and have not been exposed to the virus.
Quarantine is for the people who have traveled from a foreign country and have been in close contact with a sick person; to put in simple term, people who have been exposed to the virus- these people should limit their time outside the home, avoid transit, and restrict all kinds of physical contact with others for 14 days to see if they are showing any symptoms of the virus. As Covid-19 symptoms take a while to appear, they need to make sure that is separated from others.
People who fall under this term should strictly stay at home and monitor the Covid-19 symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, shortness of breath or fever, daily.
Isolating oneself is advisable to those who have been tested positive for the virus. In this case, there should be no direct contact with your family members and one should isolate him/herself in a room. Their everyday necessity should be kept separately and must clean their surroundings on a regular basis. Their family members who are delivering supplies to them must take all the precautions to avoid getting the virus.
If the person of this group wants to go to a hospital, then they should inform public health and must avoid taking public transport.
A lockdown is intended when the cases of people being infected rise rapidly, to stop the movement of people. It is a government-imposed measure to slow down the flow of people. This means the Government could shut down theatres, restaurants, social event halls, railways & flight services, local and national borders. While you may find it uncomfortable with the disruption, these steps are extremely important for overall public health and following them is the only option for all of us to stay alive.
We hope the clarification must have cleared your confusion about what these terms mean and why is it very important to follow the health protocols introduced by the Government. In Jaipur there has been a complete Lockdown only essential services are open and a ban on all private vehicles on roads. We request you all to follow the rules and flatten the curve.
Let’s be responsible citizens and follow the safety measures.
The whole world is affected by Corona virus which has led the Rajasthan Government took this decision to close down schools, colleges, coaching centers, gymnasium, movie theaters and theater halls till March 30. The step has been taken to reduce the spread of corona virus. Since there are not many places to go to you’ve been stuck at your home which means you have got more time to kill and get to spend more time with your family. So why not mix it up and make the best out of it?!
Do you remember when was the last time you played a board game with your family or spend your time actually doing something that you like? Well, we bet your answer would be “long time ago”. Now that you’ve got enough time to revisit our childhood days when there was no internet. We aren’t asking you to give up social media but devote less time on it and more time doing productive things that can do wonders to you. (Just kidding, but definitely can make you happy)
So, below are some of the things that you can still enjoy at home!
The first thing you can do is go for a walk, actually admire the nature and that way you will adopt a new habit.
What could be more adventurous than going hiking with your friends? But make sure to limit the group to 4-5 people only and take safety tools along with.
Been thinking of gardening but couldn’t? Now is a good time to take care of your plants and give them the love and care that they need.
Playing in your garden in the evening were the best memories from childhood. Relive those days and make fun memories again by playing with your family or friends.
They say cleaning your wardrobe is a good stress relieving activity, so go ahead and give your wardrobe a new makeover.
It’s time that you pick up that half read book and finish it or pick a new one. Reading a book is always a good idea if you wanna stay at home.
Another activity involves eating good food but first you need to turn into a chef. Why not try out a new recipe with your mom or dad and have a good time eating it.
Family game nights were definitely the best part of childhood with lots a laughter and a little cheating.
Everyone love late night drives and eating their favourite food, so why not turn it into a driving lesson.
As you grow up and get busy in our own lives, you lose connections with your school friends. So this is the time you catch up on them by doing a group video chat.
The web series has taken over the internet by storm and as the government has closed down all the movie theaters you can binge watch some classic shows.
So, in a crucial time where social distancing is the only option to avoid the spread of corona virus, the above listed things can come in handy plus you get to relive your good old days!
