Udaipur 2020: New Year – New Hopes

Udaipur recently welcomed the year 2020 in high-spirits with parties, celebrations, gatherings and fun hovering all over the city. While we are moving into another decade, our lake city is also taking ‘baby-steps’ in getting ahead in the race of ‘smart city’.

With the beginning of the new year, Udaipurites are hoping for some smarter moves in terms of Urban Development. Let’s find out what we can expect from 2020!

Engineering Marvels

The tourist city these days is experiencing a lot of congestion in road traffic movement. With the number of vehicles increasing day by day, the Municipal Corporation and UIT together need to concentrate development of engineering designs for flyovers, underpasses etc. As per the latest news, Pratap Nagar flyover work is going on in full-swing and under-pass work at Delhi gate may begin soon.

Public Transport

Lack of proper public transport facility and non-availability is one of the reasons for increased traffic congestion. People are bound to take their vehicles due to non-availability of public transport thereby increasing the number of vehicles on the road. The Smart City Company is working on a project to run around 35 city buses in the city.

Clean City

The Cleanliness Survey team will be visiting Udaipur in the month of January. The results for the Clean City Survey for India will then be declared in a few months. Udaipurites are hoping to get the top position in the clean city survey. Besides the efforts made by the government bodies for keeping the city clean, it is also the responsibility of the citizens to support the efforts and keep Udaipur clean and green. Let’s see how do we go ahead in this mission in 2020!

Ayad Beautification

The long due Ayad project has been the topic of discussion for a long time now. The project involves keeping the river that goes through the city, clean and full. This project has been recently taken over by the Smart City company. Udaipurites can now expect some quick work on this project which will add to the beauty of the city and will further increase the tourism of Udaipur.

Lake Pichola Cruise

Soon the beautiful lake of Udaipur, Pichola Lake, will have a 150-seater cruise floating over it. The 3-storey ship-like cruise will give tourist more reasons to visit the city. Udaipurites got this news sometime back. Now, they are waiting to see it happen in 2020.

White City

The Municipal Corporation of Udaipur along with the Smart City Company has started the work of painting the walled-city white, giving Udaipur its erstwhile glow. We may expect to see the buildings of the old city in white or off-white colour. It is noteworthy that Udaipur is also called The White City of India. Painting the old town white will also add to the beauty of the city and the tourists will get to see the heritage-look of the city.

Six Lane Projects

The Debari-Kaya six-lane project is in its progressive mode. If completed in time, 2020 will see better management of highway traffic especially for vehicles travelling from Chittor, Pindwara and Ahmedabad side. The Debari Greater Crossing will give a beautiful look of Udaipur before entering the city.

Rail Connectivity

The broad gauge work on Udaipur-Ahmedabad railway track is in full swing and is expected to get completed by the end of 2020. The broad gauge work will connect Udaipur to Ahmedabad and Mumbai and will also open more rail route facility for Madhya Pradesh.

With these, there are many other hopes and expectations that Udaipurites have from their city. We would love to hear what type of development would you like to see in Udaipur in 2020!

क्या उदयपुर की इमारतें सूरत जैसे अग्निकांड का इंतज़ार कर रही हैं?

पिछले दिनों सूरत में लापरवाही और गैर ज़िम्मेदारी के चलते महाभयंकर अग्नि काण्ड हुआ जिसके चलते 22 बच्चो कि जान चली गयी। “पर ये तो सूरत में हुआ न! उदयपुर में क्या हुआ? कुछ नहीं! तो ध्यान देने की क्या ज़रूरत! नहीं?”

फिर अभी पिछले हफ्ते शहर में एम बी हॉस्पिटल रोड स्थित अलंकार प्लाज़ा बिल्डिंग में किराए पर संचालित मेडिसेंटर लैब के प्रथम तल पर गुरूवार तड़के 6 बजे आग लग गयी। आग का कारण शार्ट- सर्किट बताया गया है। करीब एक घंटे का समय और 7 दमकल गाड़ियां लगीं  आग पर पूरी तरह काबू पाने में। सुबह लैब बंद होने की वजह से जनहानी की कोई खबर नहीं है। पास ही पेट्रोल पंप होने के कारण दमकल विभाग ने एहतियात के तौर पर चार अतिरिक्त गाड़ियों का इंतज़ाम करवाया। शायद अकल्पनीय है कि अगर आग का पेट्रोल पंप की तरफ बढ़ना होता तो कितना बड़ा हादसा हो सकता था!

सूरत के भीषण अग्निकांड के बाद प्रशासन द्वारा सुध संभालते- संभालते भी शहर में हादसा हो ही गया। इस हादसे से पर तो बिना किसी हताहतों के काबू पा लिया गया पर क्या हर बार ऐसा होगा? उसकी ज़िम्मेदारी कौन लेगा? जब इस आग कि गर्मी प्रशासन तक पहुंची तब प्रशासन कि नींद खुली और पिछले दिनों इसी सुध के चलते शहर में शुक्रवार को शास्त्री सर्किल स्थित  विशाल मेगा मार्ट और शनिवार को सुखाड़िया सर्किल स्तिथ बिग बाज़ार को फायर फाइटिंग सिस्टम न होने और कुछ और भी सुरक्षा कारणों के चलते सीज़ कर लिया गया। अग्निशमन अधिकारी जलज घसिया का कहना है कि दोनों इमारतों के संचालकों को तीन बार नोटिस जारी किया गया था जिनके चलते उचित कदम उठाना तो दूर, उनका जवाब तक नहीं दिया गया। और वही हुआ 338 में से उन 282 नोटिस का भी ,जो नगर निगम ने शहर भर में भवनों का निरीक्षण  करके भेजे थे। शोध करके यह भी सामने आया कि 155 इमारतें हैं, जो नगर विकास प्रन्यास के अधीन आती हैं और जिनमें फायर फाइटिंग सिस्टम का अभाव है। इनकी सूची यूआईटी को भेज दी गयी थी परन्तु उनके द्वारा किसी भी प्रकार कि कार्यवाही नहीं की गयी है।

प्रशासन कि काबिलियत पर किसी को शक नहीं पर 2019 में जहाँ तकनीक आसमान छू रही है, क्या हम सिर्फ सेफ्टी सिस्टम जैसी आवश्यकताओं की वजह से सैकड़ो जानें दाव पर लगा सकते हैं ? हम जानते हैं  कि बिग बाज़ार और विशाल मेगा मार्ट जैसे नामचीन ब्रांड और इनकी ईमारतों में इतना सामान और भीड़ होती है एक बार अगर अग्निकांड जैसा कभी कुछ हो भी जाए तो जनहानि आग से ज़्यादा भगदड़ से होगी। और अगर नामचीन इमारतों का यह हाल है तो बाकी ईमारतों से हम क्या उम्मीद रखें? अब देखना यह है कि अब जो यह नींद खुली है, जो कार्यवाही चली है, जो फाइल बनी है, यह कितने दिन तक चलता है और इसके फलस्वरूप उदयपुर कितना “स्मार्ट” बनता है।

पिपलिया जी – वह गाँव जहाँ कभी फूल खिला करते थे, अब चारो-ओर काँच के टुकड़े मिला करते हैं।

एक इंसान अपनी ज़रूरतें/इच्छाएं पूरी करने के लिए जब दायरा बढ़ाता है, तब-तब इस धरती पर कांड होता है. कभी बहुत ही साफ़-सुथरा जन्नत सा एहसास दिलाने वाला ‘पिपलिया जी’ गाँव आज वहाँ तरह-तरह की ब्रांडेड पीकर फैंकी गयी बोतलों के काँच से अटा पड़ा है. हालत ये है कि वहाँ बैठो तो मुमकिन है वहाँ फैला काँच उसके वहाँ होने का सबूत ज़रूर देगा. चुभकर.

यह सबकुछ शुरू होता है शहर से ही. खुद ही के बनाए शहरी जंगल से ऊब जाने की स्थिति में लोग आसपास की जगहों में मदर नेचर/ प्रकृति की गोद, जो भी कहना चाहो, ढूढ़ने निकल पड़ते है. इसमें कोई बुराई नहीं है. लेकिन हम इंसानों की फ़ितरत है कि जिसे सबसे ज़्यादा चाहते है उसे ही सबसे ज़्यादा जाने-अनजाने में नुकसान पहुँचा देते है.

किसी भी नए पर्यटन स्थल/टूरिस्ट पॉइंट के उभरने से स्थानीय लोगों को फ़ायदा पहुँचता है, बेशक. लेकिन उससे होने वाले नुकसान भी उन्हें ही उठाने पड़ते हैं. क्योंकि हम तो ‘मनोरंजन कर’, ‘फील कर’, ‘सेल्फी लेकर’, ‘खा-पी कर’ निकल लेते हैं, पर इन सब की निशानी छोड़ जाते हैं.

मानाकि ये उमंगो भरी उम्र है पर इसका मतलब ये तो क़तई नहीं निकलता की इस उम्र को बेफिक्री और नाशुक्री के साथ जिया जाए. हमें इतना ख़याल तो रखना ही चाहिए कि कम से कम वहाँ रहने वाले लोगों को हमारी वजह से कोई परेशानी न उठानी पड़े.

ऐसा नहीं है कि उन्हें हमारी मौजूदगी से कोई परेशानी है. वो बाक़ायदा खुश है की उन्हें अब कमाने के लिए शहर/मंडी नहीं आना पड़ता. यहीं बैठे-बैठे दिहाड़ी का जुगाड़ हो जाता है.

वो मासूम है, हमारी तरह चालाक नहीं है (आप मानो या न मानो लेकिन सच है), वो सन् 2025-50 की नहीं सोचते. ये गाँव वाले आज में जीते हैं. और हम इन्हें भविष्य के धुंधले, बादलों के समान सपने दिखा रहे हैं. हम इन गाँवों को शहर बना रहे हैं और गाँव-वालों को शहरी.

Terrific Traffic: उदयपुर में लोग कम ट्रैफिक ज़्यादा है!

उदयपुर में लोग कम ट्रैफिक ज़्यादा है! क्या आप भी इसी problem के शिकार हैं? रेड लाइट क्या होती है चौराहों पर, क्या ये लोग जानते भी है? Probably not! Because हर चौराहे पर चारो तरफ से गाड़ियाँ आ रही हैं जिन्हें कोई supervise नहीं करता है।

traffic in udaipur

आज हम अपनी सिटी को Smart City और Tourists Hub बुलाते हैं। लेकिन क्या वाकई उदयपुर tourist friendly है? एक जगह से दूसरी जगह पहुँचने के लिए आधे-आधे घंटे तक गाड़ियों के बीच में खड़े रहना पड़ता है। उदयपुर को हमारी gormint एक टूरिस्ट स्पॉट की तरह डेवेलप करना चाह रही है, पर क्या प्रशासन को फसती हुई गाड़िया और unmanaged चौराहे दिखाई नहीं दे रहें?

Tourists के अलावा भी लोग रहते हैं यहाँ भाई !!!

एक cute scene बताते हैं आपको। एक लेडी पुलिस ने एक भाई साहब को चौराहे पर हाथ दिखाते हुए रोकने की कोशिश की क्योंकि वो मना करने के बावजूद अपनी मारुती चलाये जा रहे थे। तभी एक मोहक मुस्कान देते हुए अंकल जी बोले, “अरे मेडम…” और धन्नाते हुए गाड़ी आगे ले गये।

Now that’s quite क्यूट….!

टूरिस्ट मन चाही जगहों पर गाड़ियाँ फसाते देखे जा सकते हैं; और लोकल लोग टूरिस्ट को गालियाँ देते देखे जा सकते है।

क्या यही है developed उदयपुर?

It is a terrible thing for people coming to the city to get stuck amidst the unmanaged traffic in Udaipur. Plus, the city is not just tourists, we also live here and we are getting stuck here! There should be some way to decongest this!?

Are we really growing? Tourists are flocking to our city, which is, perhaps a good thing as the market would grow, our city’s economy would hike and all sort of blah blah blah. But on the other hand, there is so much congestion on our roads these days, the pollution levels are raising in our green city and the traffic police and all the governing authorities are not even giving it a look.

Why because चलने दो जैसा चल रहा है?

#udaipur_ka_unmanaged_traffic

फोटो खेचिये और बताइए की आप किस गली या main रोड पर traffic में फसे है ।

धूल खाती आँखें सपने कैसे देखे?

बड़े-बुज़ुर्ग कहते है.. “सपने देखने चाहिए वो भी खुली आँखों से”, अब दिक्कत ये है, सपने देखने के लिए आँखें खोलो तो धूल चली जाती है। फिर करना ये पड़ता है कि चश्मा पहनकर मंजिले खोजनी पड़ती है। यही हाल है मेरा। सुबह फेसवाश लगा कर निकलो तो ऑफिस पहुँचते-पहुँचते फिर से चेहरे पर 2 इंच मोटी धूल और मिट्टी की परत जमा हो जाती है।

पर भाई किस की गलती निकाले ? धूल-मिट्टी है बैठी तो रहेगी नी…उड़ेगी ही, ट्रेवल ही करेगी, शायद ये भी वांडरर होती होगी तब ही। आजकल वैसे भी ट्रेंड में है ये सब और भाई टूरिस्ट सिटी में नहीं करेगी तो क्या गाँव-खेड़े में करेगी? तुम भी यार बात करते हो….

धूल भरी रोड

अच्छा हाँ… ये कार वाले ना मेरी परेशानी नहीं समझेंगे । ये तो मेरे जैसे उन दुःखी लोगो की कहानी है जो सुबह-सुबह मुँह धोकर बाइक-स्कूटी पर निकलते है और ऑफिस, दूकान, मुकाम पर पहुँचते है तो सुनने को मिलता है, “ कारे हांपड़ी ने नि आयो कई? कमु-कम मुंडो तो धोई ने आतो !!”

अब आप ही बताओ इंसान दुखी होगा के नी… ये कार वाले तो शीशे बंद कर देते है । हम क्या बंद करे..?

सोचा प्रशासन से मदद मांगता हूँ, पर वो हर बार एक ही चीज़ देते है.. भरोसा। अब ये समझ नहीं आता इस भरोसे का इस्तेमाल करूँ तो करूँ कैसे ? अब कोई दूसरा मुझसे पूछता है तो मैं भी उसे प्रशासन का दिया हुआ भरोसा फॉरवर्ड कर देता हूँ … शादी में आए कपड़ो की तरह।

हेलमेट पहनते है तब मुँह तो बच जाता है पर गर्दन के नीचे ऐसा लगता जैसे अभी-अभी अखाड़े से लौटे हो। बहुत दुःख है भाई जीवन में…

धूल भरी सड़के
Source : Dainik Bhaskar

अगर आपको भी मेरी प्रॉब्लम अपनी प्रॉब्लम लगती है और आपके पास कोई इससे जुड़ा कोई सुझाव हो तो बताओ भाई, कमेंट्स करो, कैसे निपटे इन सड़कों पर उड़ती धूल-मिट्टी से? क्योंकि अब मेरे तो कुछ समझ में नहीं आ रहा है।

व्हाट्सएप पर कृपा वाले मेसेज फॉरवर्ड करने से कुछ कृपा नहीं आने वाली साथियों, ऐसे मेसेज फॉरवर्ड करोगे तो शायद उदयपुर प्रशासन तक बात पहुँच जाए, और हम जैसो पर दया आ जाए।

 

– एक दुःखी राहगीर

Happy Birthday Udaipur!! Celebrating Heritage and Rising

“ Aravali Ki Wadiyon Mein Janma, Sabhyata Ke Rango Mein Saja,

Itihaas Ke Panno Mein Lipta, Maharajao Ke Panth Mein Bandhaa,

Mewar Ki Rajdhani, Sundarta Se Sanjoya.

Sheher Kuch Anokha Sa, Pyaar Se Hai Piroya.”

Our beautiful Wonderland, Udaipur has turned 463 Years old. And, no wonder it’s the time of happiness and celebration for every native as our city has not only been through a lot of phases in all these years but it has also gained a lot of popularity in many sense.

When it comes to culture, heritage, traditions, and modernization, Udaipur has always shown its significance amongst everyone. Justifying its name meaning ‘Rise’, our city has always been open for all type of revolution.

And, on this special occasion, we would like to share a glimpse of information that probably everyone should know when it’s about Lake City:

History Pick-up

Founded in 1559, by Maharana Udai Singh II, Udaipur was established as the new capital of the Mewar Kingdom. And, behind the settlement of Udaipur, it was a sudden meet of Maharana Udai Singh with a hermit while hunting in the foothills of the Aravali Range. Their hermit blessed him and guided him to build a palace on the spot, assuring him it would be protected. Then, Udai Singh II consequently acknowledged a residence on the site. In 1567, Mughal emperor Akbar laid siege to the venerated fort of Chittor. At that time, to protect Udaipur from external attacks, Maharana Udai Singh built a six-kilometer long city wall, with seven gates, namely Surajpole, Udiapole, Chandpole, Hathipole, and so on. In today’s time, the area within these walls is known as the old city or walled city. And, being in the mountainous region, Udaipur always remained safe from Mughal influence despite extreme pressure.

Regarding other historical aspects, many other changes were seen before independence as well. As when it’s a catch of tourism, many foreign traders and personalities like Edward, Prince of Wales (1921), Lord Minto, Viceroy of India (1909), and several others visited Udaipur.

Udaipur’s Famous Catches

Known for its scenic locations, Udaipur is amongst the popular travel destinations to witness growing tourism each and every day. Astounding people through its cityscapes, Udaipur houses many beautiful places to look for like Lakes (Fateh Sagar, Udai Sagar, Swaroop Sagar, etc.), Palaces (City Palace, Monsoon Palace, etc.), Temples (Jagdish Mandir, Sahastra Bahu Temple, Eklingji, etc.), and much more.

In part of an economy, our city has a diversified base that includes Handicrafts Markets, Tourism, Metal & mineral industries, Agriculture and Retail sources.

In the scene of culture, our city has kept a balance between preserving the rituals and traditions of the past while influencing modern lifestyle and advancements. Dance forms like Kalbelia, Ghoomar, Kachchhi Godi, Bhavai, etc. are still performed in tribal communities.

And, when it comes to art, miniature paintings are amongst the most famous developed here. To display the forms of Rajasthani tradition, some local festivals like Gangaur, Hariyali Amavasya, Jagannath Rath Yatra, etc. are celebrated enthusiastically.

And, when it’s a part of entertainment and events, Udaipur is a city that is often recognised by many Indian and Foreign nationals for Royal Destination Weddings, Movie Shoots, Lake Festival, World Music Festival, etc.

Apart from all, it also justifies education by serving IIMU (Indian Institute of Management, Udaipur), CTAE (College of Technology and Engineering), and several other colleges and private universities.

Lastly, we can say, our Udaipur is a diamond, and we are proud of our city that has been an incredible land in its own.

Cheers to our mains!! Cheers to all of us…. WE LOVE UDAIPUR 🙂 

Mharo Rajasthan: The Rajasthani Fest of Celebration Mall

Rajasthan is a beautiful blend of eclectic cultures. Several fests are organized to celebrate the love for the State in the City of Lakes. This Valentine’s season Udaipur showed its love and pride towards Rajasthani Culture at The Celebration Mall Udaipur in Mharo Rajasthan. The Mall celebrated the love for the art forms of Rajasthan and also let the people of Udaipur enjoy the fiesta with them.

Mharo Rajasthan - Celebration Mall

The Mall was decorated in Rajasthani theme with a lot of activities like puppet shows, Pottery, Clay Art, Camel ride, Photo Zone and Rajasthani Handicraft stalls. The puppet show was an attraction for the children; they also enjoyed the pottery and clay art. People were not even apprehensive in getting their hands dirty!! Many children, as well as adults, took active participation in making pots and learning pottery! The clay art also gathered much acclamation.

The photo-zone took all the zealous selfie-takers to its side. With several props, people of Udaipur loved clicking and making their day memorable. Camel rides were outside the mall, the periphery was marked by enthusiasm as it was the first time there was a camel ride outside of the mall which attracted a lot of people even foreign tourists. The camel ride was a fun part of the entire event.

Udaipur is a tourist hub and people from all over the globe come to explore the Venice of the East! For all those beautiful people a stall dedicated to the Rajasthani Handicraft was put up. It did get all the appreciation and footfall. The people loved the handicrafts and were fascinated by the handmade stuff.

The jewelry section took over the ladies! Beautiful Rajasthani tribal jewelry was put forth and the ladies loved it. The festival Mharo Rajasthan started on 4th of February and would go on until 19th of February. Apart from the above, Mehndi art too lured the public.

As we all know how eminent and fun filled are Rajasthani Folk music and dances are. Celebration Mall took care of that too. Various artists performed the Folk Dances of Rajasthan like the very famous ‘Matki Dance’. The folk music also enthralled the people with an aesthetically appealing musical performance by vernacular artists.

As the previous weekend was fun filled, we believe the following week will be all the more exciting. Foreign visitors also got engrossed in the event by the breath-taking performances of the artists. More charming and alluring performances are lined up for you to enjoy the essence of Rajasthan with Celebration Mall Udaipur.

This frolicsome event will continue until 19th February and this weekend will also see some amazing Rajasthani performances by various artists. Visit the Celebration Mall for more captivating and enticing performances and we are sure that you will love the ambiance it has to offer!!

“Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Make Efforts.” – Mrs. Neelkamal Agrawal, IMS Udaipur

What can be the most amazing feeling for you? Hitting a jackpot, or making someone feel proud! Well answer is way simple if you think on an emotional note. If you tend to follow your heart, no other feeling can be bigger when you have achieved that you have always dreamed about.

Running into the competitive life where there is a phase of confusion many times when it is about selecting a field. If you think about education, vast options are there to look for, but apart from all, more essential is to set the lookout of interest, ability and, scope. As being in the panorama where there is no proper counseling and guidance to make the career is probably not a cup of tea for the upcoming generation. It is often seen that students as well parents want to accomplish the level of global education to fulfill the educational aspect. But, due to lack of proper counseling, knowledge about the numerous fields, and how to make pre-primary approaches like competitive examinations has been the toughest part for all of them.

Mrs. Neelkamal Agrawal

Especially, for the ones who are in small towns face this issues at the higher level. As when it’s about the future everyone has to think at prior note. To resolve this major dilemma we took the expert advice by Mrs. Neelkamal Agrawal along with her partner Mr. Anupam Agrawal who have experience of 18 years. Stringed up with the head branch of IMS learning resources Pvt. Ltd. Both of them highlighted certain things that can prove to be helpful for students as well parents. When we asked them about few points they went up with firm statements this way:

 

Students are unaware of the process of national as well abroad studies in spite of so many sources. Why is that so, can you suggest what a student can do after 10th, 12th?

– “At the very first, students should start their career counseling right from the 10th class. As generally, when they are in the crowd of science and commerce they have limited options and fierce competition which require a pre-planned approach. If the student wants to go for engineering or medical line, or if one is looking for CA or CS, it is must take the prior career guidance. They should check their area of interest & return on time investing on any career option. Apart from this, ability, scope, and interest these 3 aspects of Career-Venn diagram should interlink together to hold up with success.”

 

Do we have career options apart from Medical, Engineering, CA-CS, etc.?

-“Definitely yes, the first option that students can look for is LAW as a career through CLAT & other entrance exams which will let them join top National Law Universities of India for a 5-year program. Students can start their preparation as soon as they complete their 10th class exams.

The second option available is IIM Indore IPM program & BBA/BMS/BBM programs of top brands of India like Narsee Monjee, Delhi University, Christ University, Symbiosis, etc. Most of the colleges have their eligibility test & students can grab admissions if they start preparing early with proper mentor & Guide.

The third option available to 11th /12th class students is to choose Undergraduate program outside India through SAT Exam. Most of the students & parents are unaware of the application preparation part and structure of SAT. There are a lot of parameters one has to check before preparing for abroad studies. That is why, we not only assure but provide complete guidance to interested students and parents at IMS Udaipur.”

 

What examinations and approach students can opt for national as well international level after their Graduation?

– “In India, There are many options even in the exams. Students who are brilliant enough intake every competitive examination like CAT, XAT, IIFT, NMAT, SNAP, CMAT, and many other. Many universities and colleges in India prefer the score of CAT. Student should look for all these options & should choose the exam wisely. Once they decide which exam to appear for, they should look for proper guidance to start their preparation so that they can get what they deserve. Students who are thinking to go for abroad studies should opt, GMAT, GRE, IELTS and TOEFL along with a good application packet that consists of extra co-curricular activities too. And, these all things should be planned earlier right from 10th, 12th and even in graduation. For this purposes, student should take the proper career guidance as one mistake can let you drop the good opportunity from hand.”

 

If we look at the current scenario, students seem to be quite afraid from competitive examinations even being prepared. Why that happens?

– “Whatever students we have seen till now face the fear of not attempting competitive exams like CAT instead of that they prefer CMAT which will provide them a college but, on the other side won’t make them fit for the top universities in nation. The students who are well with academics and have scored 80% – 85% still they also go for CMAT, as they have already encountered in the talks of people that CAT is tough which is the biggest issue that we have seen right now”. So, there is a need to change the mentality of the students as well parents about the examinations of CAT, CMAT, GRE, CLAT, and lots more.”

Father – Every Child’s First Superhero (Stories from Udaipur)

The word father does not require any introduction. He is the savior who never asks for a favor but, completes his duty just by sensing our existence in the mother’s womb. That’s why it’s well said, “Some superheroes don’t have capes…They are called DAD.” For every child, father is the first superhero that he/she has ever been with from birth. No wonder mother’s are sweet but for many, especially daughters, daddies are more adorable in spite of their strict but protective nature. In some or the other way, many of us forget that what our Father’s have done for us. They are not just responsible for our birth but, they have also nourished us to grow every single day, learn new things, and take a stand to face the problems of our life.

fathers of udaipur
That is why all the daddies deserve the celebration which is specially meant for them. On this lovely occasion of Father’s day, UdaipurBlog decided to cover up the few people who have touched the heights of success with their self-struggle and of course with the support of their father’s. And, no wonder these people have done well on their level to turn dreams into reality and to make their dad’s proud.

 

Pritum Suthar (IIT Bombay)

Pritum Suthar

He never forced me to do things he liked but, to do what I like.” The words of Pritum Suthar were heartwarming for his father. Mr. Panna Lal Suthar, who is in the ancestral business and working as a contractor in PWD since 4-5 years.
Pritum’s father always encouraged each and every step of him. When we asked him about his father, he came up with something straight from his heart and exclaimed, “Being less formally educated and working in carpenter’s profession, he never forced me into the family trade which most of the father’s do in Suthar community in my village (mada, near Gogunda). (It is general trend that after completing 10th or maybe 12th join the ancestral profession and earn). My father stood out of it and helped me realize his dream of doing something which makes my village proud. Today whatever I am, whatever I do is all because of his constant support.

 

Princess Bhargavi Kumari Mewar (Aashka – The Lifestyle Boutique)

Princess Bhargavi Kumari Mewar

Bhargavi Kumari Mewar tells us how her father Shriji Arvind Singh Ji Mewar, 76th Custodian of the House of Mewar has nurtured, encouraged and mentored her in pursuing her goals and life as a whole. The bond of this duo surprised us that in spite of being so busy with the schedules, they do spend quality time together.
When we asked her to explain the relationship with her father, she shared with us some deep thoughts and emotions – stating, “I feel incredibly blessed to have a father who has not only taught by example but has invested the time to involve me in the process; so these lessons – become experiences. A likely and reliable source to draw from in the future.” She also added, “The greatest thing that has helped propel me both personally and professionally has been my father’s absolute unflinching belief in me. Blessed to call him ‘Da.

 

Shubham Purohit (Co-owner Chaifeteria)

Shubham Purohit

Dad’s cannot be surprising than this when they support the idea of a street stall set up by their child. That’s the irony we saw in Shubh’s dad Mr. ML Purohit, who started working as newspaper hawker and now owns a wholesome agency in Udaipur.
Shubham expressed heartedly for his daddy with a sweet smile, “He is still connected to his roots and values, and has always taught me the same. Two Years back when I decided to start Chaifeteria (tea stall) he was the first person to come in support of the idea, he told that in business a man has to try more than 10 ideas, and one of it will be the reason for success, so never give up on trial. He has taught me many things in life that proved my real worth.

Miti Godawat (Pilot: Commercial License Holder)

Miti godawat

Being a girl child, belonging to a small town and having a dream to fly a plane can be challenging for many parents to handle. But, for Miti’s dad, the dream of his daughter became a top priority. And, this is what Miti Godawat expressed about her amazing father, “I am a proud daughter of a proud dad. He has been my pillar forever, who gave birth to the confident and independent me. From traveling 7 seas across to deal with government officials alone he has always given me motivation. He is my business and financial advisor who looks upon my ideas and considers them. Most of it, my idol when it comes to facing the world bravely to conquer your dreams. I wish to fulfill his dream of seeing me on that right seat in the cockpit soon”.

 

Karan Agrawal (Director: vSupport and SpicySigdi)

Karan Agarwal

“My hero, my friend, my mentor, my father!” with a sweet gesture the warm feelings of Mr. Karan Agrawal came over at once. Belonging to a traditional Agrawal family, he too had to bear the burden of household expectations to take over his father footsteps and handle the ancestral business. But, his father’s encouragement in his life is worth knowing. He stated, “My Papa extended his constant support when I started a BPO five years back along with an online food delivery business and today when it’s established I have another baby in my lap. Helping my dad in his marble business shall be a priority throughout but pursuing my business dreams have given me my self-confidence and a self-identity. I owe this to him – My Dad…“.

 

Kavita Sharma Joshi (Sarpanch Shobhagpura)

Kavita Sharma Joshi

We can entitle her as superwoman Mrs. Kavita Sharma Joshi, who is an engineer, a Sarpanch as well as a mother. And, behind her success and achievements she stated her father like this, “He played a very inspiring role in my life. My dad boosted me to complete my engineering in electronics. During this period, I got married as well and continued the graduation. After studies, I joined Secure Meters as a Hardware Engineer. During my pregnancy, when I was nominated for Sarpanch of Shobhagpura it was tough to cope up. But, by the grace of God we won the election & at the same time I was blessed with baby boy. Driving to the responsibilities as a Sarpanch of my block and mother too, I took a decision to quit from secure meters. The news was shocking for my father as it was his dream to see me as an engineer. But, he understood my situation and encouraged for everything.

 

Dr. Shailendra Somani (Director: MDS. Sr. Sec. School)

Dr. Shailendra Somani

Giving a height to the dream of setting up a school in the memories of grandmother and being a constant beacon of inspiration relies on Dr. Ramesh Chandra Somani, father of Dr. Shailendra Somani. When there was a slight conversation about his dad, he said, “His life has been an example of resilience, application of mind and determination. He always strived to give the best resource and education to his kids. He continues to set an example for us by his disciplined hard work every day at the age of 68. His ethos and work ethic have been a great inspiration and influence on MDS institution and me. We are blessed by his presence and wish him good health so that he can continue to guide us.

 

Raksha Pokharna (Owner: Queen’s Boutique)

Raksha Pokharna

Successful fashion designer, a diva, and mom of two sweet little kids, Raksha Pokharna, defined her father in a very simple way and expressed us that, “My dad as a person with high spirits never let me give up just because I’m a girl. He always stood up for me and my decisions even for my life’s most important decision whether it was a career, business, or marriage. When I gave a kick start to my venture Queen’s Boutique and received “Arvana Queen’s Award” for budding business woman. The most mesmerizing moments were the appreciation of my father. Thanks to Almighty who blessed me world’s best papa!!
Last but not the least, I want to thank My Sweet Daddy Mr. Vijay Kumar Khaturia (Co-Owner: Vasudev Dudh Bhandar) for blessing such a great life and supporting my profession of the writer in spite of being less educated.
