5 Things That Will Change The Face Of JLN Marg If Metro Gets Constructed

Metro which has given a new life and looks to the city of Jaipur is on the go to make the life of riders more comfortable. After the successful completion of Phase 1 of the Jaipur Metro, it is ready to move on with its Phase 2. Most popular and travelled road Jawahar Lal Nehru Marg is one of the leading contenders for the Phase 2. JLN Marg is also famous among the VIPs as it serves the perfect neat, clean and well-kept route for the Presidents, Vice Presidents and other important dignitaries of the country and other nation’s dignitaries.

If we get the metro rolling on the JLN Marg, here are the 5 things that will bring change into a life of a normal Jaipurite.

  1. Jawahar Circle Ab Door Nahi

Jawahar Circle

You won’t have any reason to be lazy to get up, drive to the Jawahar Circle for a refreshing morning walk.  You simply have to catch the metro from your nearest station and move on for a morning train ride.

  1. WTP Ka Ek Naya Nazariya

WTP

WTP, a drastic development to the historic city of Jaipur gets clicked from every angle. Once the metro starts, you will get a new angle to click this giant blue building, and nothing wrong if you can capture the sight of this beauty in the backdrop to your selfie.

  1. Ae Bhai Zare Dekh Ke Chalo, Par Ab Dekhne Ki Zaroorat Nahi

Traffic is one of the growing reasons for people’s irritation. Red lights are meant to be followed but what if a right going bike or car stops in the extreme left and cuts your way to run ahead of you to go right. Blood really boils during such instance especially when you come tired after the day’s work. One problem which the metro might solve is no stopping at the red lights and jump the congested traffic during office hours. You will be saved from the most difficult Rajasthan University’s crossing.

  1. Saras Parlor – Tumko Na Bhool Payengey Hum

saras-parlour

Saras Parlour, a place which is associated with lots of Jaipurites. Most of us have spent our childhood nights at Saras Parlour standing in long queues for garam doodh and jalebi in winters and softy ice creams during summer nights. But so sad, if the metro takes its way on JLN Marg we have to cease the exit to the Saras Parlour.

  1. Babuji Dheere Chalna  

JLN

The JLN Marg has butter like smoothness because of its VIP importance. Seeing this, people usually take off like a plane and are caught red-handed by the smart yet clever police. But as the metro starts, you need not worry about the speed limit as it has its own pace.

What if it actually happens? We will definitely miss the wide view that we get while moving through this road 😦

A Night-Out in the Pink City!

If you want to pick up your car at 8:00 in the evening and want to be on the go for the night, what would your plan be? Whether friends or girlfriends, a new night-out idea always trumps the cliched clubbing plans! Charm your night through the Pink City’s modern-day and historical delights, so that when you come back home, it is an evening well spent.

Could there be a better stress-buster to start your day-end trip than a refreshing drink? Didn’t Benjamin Franklin say ‘In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom’!

Drinks at the Henry’s, Park Prime could give your evening the perfect start. While beers and draught beers are usually stocked, they serve various spirits, cocktails and mock-tails. Their snack menu to go with the drinks has sumptuous Chinese, Continental and North-Indian preparations. My recommendations would definitely be Kathi Roll, Paneer Tikka, Fish Tikka, Chicken Stick, Mojito Mocktail, and Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail.

Before heading for your car remember to hand-over the steering to the one who doesn’t drink or take a chauffeur-driven car. We insist don’t mix drink with driving. Through the drive after this appetizing drinks’ round, some romance with your partner or fun with your friends must be on your mind. Savour the emotion until your stomach groans for food. When you pass by The Forresta Kitchen & Bar at Devraj Niwas Hotel in Bani Park, stop your car as food here is the exact gourmet bliss your stomach must be craving for by now. As the name also suggests, the forest ambience, the light mist spraying and the muted lighting is the backdrop with a difference and adds further to your spirits.

Forresta

It is time for some reminiscing! Recollect the good-old times while driving through the walled city, especially the Hawa Mahal revelling in the moon light. The chaos and bustle of this city area during the day, transforms into a peaceful and quiet place by the night, where you can cherish the beauty of the earliest built part of Jaipur. One of the most beautiful and serene places of the Pink City is Jal Mahal, and we Jaipurites are crazy about it. There couldn’t be a more romantic view than the reflection of the stars and the cobalt blue sky in the unruffled water.

You could catch a cup of hot coffee while still enjoying the cool breeze at the roof-top Cafe Coffee Day in front of Jal Mahal; after all (as the CCD logo says) a lot can happen over coffee 😉

Drive back home through the Prithviraj Road to experience your car cruise. While crossing the Statue Circle, don’t miss the look of the erstwhile Maharaja (Sawai Man Singh) of Jaipur in his full glory. If the girls in your car are craving for an ice-cream, you know nothing beats Jaipur’s favourite Jal Mahal ice-cream parlour!

Coming back home, you realise there was a lot of good time spent today to relish. So the next time you want to spend some quality time through the late evening that could possibly have a calming effect on you then you know the places to be in Jaipur.

A late-nights’ drive with someone special by you is the best stress-buster ever!
