The oldest existing, and proudly Indian calendar, Vikram Samvat entered its 2068th year today. In honouring the Indian culture, all the main streets of the city saw children from Alok Sansthan offering Tilak, Gud, Coriander seeds and Neem leaves, as a souvenir of good luck and health throughout the year. In the evening, there was a great celebration at Doodh Talai. This was not only a celebration, but also a tradition in Udaipur which is kept alive since past 30 years.
The entire Doodh Talai was crowded with enthusiastic Udaipies as well as many honourable dignitaries which included Ex MLA Gulab Chand Katariya, Municipal Corporation Chairman Mrs. Rajni Dangi, founder of Alok Sansthan Mr. Shyam Lal Kumawat, and many more.
Mrs Rani Dangi emphasized on keeping the city and our lakes clean, and appeal for disposal of minimal waste into lakes was made. The programme was then followed by the Deep Pravah, and huge rounds of fireworks.
Here we present a few glimpses of the celebration for those who missed being on the spot.
Team UdaipurBlog wishes everyone a very happy and prosperous new year.
