Bagheri ka Naka- A Perfect Place for Monsoon Getaway

It is rightly said that “ Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…rather it’s more about learning to dance in the rain”. Usually, monsoons are considered dark and gloomy, which is absolutely a fallacy. And particularly if you are in Udaipur it cannot be monotonous, knowing that it is one of the best monsoon destinations in India.

People in Udaipur are always ready to fasten their seatbelts to hop on to the nearby areas during monsoon instead of merely sitting inside homes and sipping tea with pakoras. Monsoons are extremely pleasurable and one cannot make an omelette without breaking an egg, so get ready to get wet.

One such ideal place to visit during monsoon is Bagheri ka Naka which is a picnic spot for locals. Bagheri ka Naka is a small dam, nearly 50 km away from Udaipur in the Rajsamand district which is named after the village Bagheri. 

The place is a feast to the photographers’ eye, having lush green Aravali hills offering a perfect backdrop for the frame. The place usually gets flooded with people during rains when the water from the dam overflows. Moreover, it falls on the Udaipur-Kumbhalgarh lane which itself is a picturesque site where you can witness clouds kissing the mountains and thus a perfect place for a family getaway.

Do’s and Dont’s 

  • The place is in the interior of the village and you cannot find shops or good restaurants on the way or nearby area, hence it will be good to take food and some refreshment along.
  • The place is an excellent destination for photography enthusiasts, thus make sure that you do not forget to carry your camera or smartphones.
  • There is a pathway leading to the top of the dam, which offers a complete 360-degree view of the dam and the lake. It is suggested to wear comfortable trekking footwear so that you can easily climb the rocky track that leads to the dam.
  • Most people visit during monsoon to enjoy the overflow of water from the dam. Be cautious while you step in the water, since running water may cause a casualty.
  • Be very cautious while you step in the water, the base may be slippery which might cause you to fall. 
  • Special precautions must be taken if you are taking kids along, at the same time adults should be watchful during the time the dam overflows.Bageri ka Naka

Best Time to Visit

Monsoon is probably the best time to visit Bageri ka Naka because the dam overflows and that just doubles the beauty of this place. Locals usually prefer to visit during weekends but for a traveller, any day can be the best day.

How to reach

The place is nearly 50 km and a more than an hour ride from Udaipur since the roads are narrow and not very well developed. This place can also be reached from Nathadwara and is merely 31 km from there. Private cars or taxis are the best options, however, if you are a true adventurer you can travel through a bike as well.

40 Day Long Gavri Fest begins with the onset of Monsoon in Udaipur

Once again, Gavri, the famous folk dance-drama fest has commenced with the advent of monsoon in Udaipur. A 40 day long festival of the Bheel tribe initiated from 16th August. The folk dance includes people from all ages starting from 8 to 80’s, who will dance and play to please the Goddess. During the Gavri festival, the Bheel community usually performs invocation rituals, which are conducted in Shravan month of hindu calendar; and thus the fest mostly falls in the months of August-September.

It may be noted that during the 40-day Gavari season not only the players avoid alcohol, meat and sex but also avoid wearing shoes, beds, bathing, and eating greens (which they believe might harm insects).  Also, some of the tribes observe fast on the “paancham” and “saatam” while the tribes of Bedla region have pledged to fast for the entire 40 days of celebrations. The Gavri troupes will uncross several regions while giving performances at different T-points of the town.

For those who missed Udaipur Food Drive season 3: Everything you want to know

There is no sincere love than the love of food.”  – George Bernard Shaw

Most people cherish monsoons because of its rain and the heart-pleasing weather, while there are others, like me who crave, crave and just crave for food. UdaipurBlog knowing this, successfully conducted the most awaited event Udaipur Food Drive 2019, which was its 3rd edition. Also, UdaipurBlog which has always nurtured innovative ideas to bring people together, be it ULF (Udaipur light festival), UBPhotowalk, fashion contest, or any other event, the central idea has remained the same for years – let’s connect.

Udaipur Blog

 Food Drive (“food+drive”) is one such amazing event which provides a platform for food enthusiasts to connect & share their experiences, amazing food journeys, and explore the unexplored world of flavors.

Let’s know how this started- 

It was a Saturday evening, and the Udaipur folks were in a weekend mood. The sun was playing hide and seek with clouds, while the drizzling rain was in no mood to stop even for a while, whereas the clouds were resting on every big and small hill around Udaipur to make people come out of their houses and get selfies with them. This was the time when team UdaipurBlog was uniting people from all spheres of life to share a common table and feast on toothsome food at different corners of the town.

Our first stop was Twist Bar and Lounge. This spectacular place is located near Shobhagpura circle and offers the perfect ambience for anyone looking to hang out with friends and family. In no time, the place was occupied with more than 40 food lovers, all excited and ready to eat. Soon the staff at Twist emerged with the food which not only tasted heavenly but also looked spectacular. Everywhere you could see was people eagerly waiting to grab a quick bite.

Foodies

Next we drove to The Bungalow, a multi-cuisine restaurant located near Sukhadia Circle. The much-needed warmth due to the rainy season was provided, not only by the place’s ambiance but also the service and humbleness of the staff. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a welcome drink. After a small introduction about the place and its history, the food was served. The fusion of different cuisines definitely caught our attention but the Veg Pad Thai Noodles, in particular, stole our hearts.

It’s said that ‘all is well that ends well’, and our last destination did just that. Panna Vilas Rooftop Restaurant  is a beautiful property that offers a mesmerizing view of Lake Fateh Sagar. The alluring ambience of the place was complemented with the flavorful food that was served. The Chicken Banjara, which they say is the queen of their menu, took the limelight. The tandoori aroma was enough to trigger the mood and taste buds of all foodies. No doubt, the food was sumptuous together with the atmosphere it offered.

When the weather is on its full charm and the soul is filled with so many flavors, how could one forget to seize the moment? All the attendees flooded their phones and cameras with hundreds and thousands of selfies and images of food, beautiful faces in binging mood and of course the picturesque views. Here are some of the memories compiled for you:

Rajasthan Government won the battle of possession of historic Udaipur House in New Delhi

Rajasthan government’s long-awaited battle for the possession of historic Udaipur House in New Delhi has come to rest with the recent directives of Supreme Court. The property is situated near the Tees Hazari court at Civil Lines in Delhi. The Historic building was built before Independence by the then ruling Maharana of Mewar, which was occupied by Delhi government post-independence.

The majestic building is sprawling over 12000 meters of land at a prime location of Delhi, whose current worth is evaluated around 1500 crore. Before Independence, when Luteyn’s  Delhi was being designed, the property was built by Udaipur’s Royal family. That time the British asked the Maharana of Udaipur to build a mansion in Delhi like other princely houses.

The Udaipur House, Delhi

Post-independence Delhi government was granted the possession only for use. However, in 2010, Ashok Gehlot, the then Chief Minister of Rajasthan held talks with Delhi government to hand over the property back to Rajasthan, but the plea was declined. Following which the government took the issue to Supreme Court.

Recently Supreme Court issued directives to both the governments to settle the issue. After which a meeting among the representatives from Rajasthan and Delhi was held, where it was decided to hand over the property to Rajasthan government.

 

7 Tips To Play a Social Media Strategy for Your Wedding

Social media platforms offer everyone an opportunity to talk to the world about an event, product or service. After getting engaged, people tend to think of how to make people aware of the wedding plans and the like.

There’s so much to do through social media to get people to notice your event, but there are tips that make it easy to succeed in your social media strategy. The good bit is, it doesn’t cost a fortune to work out the tips. 

The following are social media strategy tips for your next wedding. 

 

  • Create an Instagram Business Account

 

The reason why I am insisting on a business account is that it has lots of useful options that ordinary accounts don’t have. An Instagram business account has the following options:

  • Contact buttons

With a business account, your profile will displace CTA features like Call, Email and Directions buttons directly above your feed. This makes it easy for visitors to contact you with a click of a button. You definitely grab the attention of many visitors with a click.

  • Link Your Pages

If you didn’t know, the owner of Instagram owns Facebook as well. Additionally, it is easier to link your Instagram business account to Facebook. Then it will be easy to share your feed in both places, respond to messages and reply to comments from inside Facebook.

  • Analytics

Analytics is apparently the best feature with a business account. This is because your account can track your engagement on your posts and display the statistics. This is the most useful information for generating new content, creating your Ad’s and engaging with your audience.

  • Swipe Up

It has been rumored that soon all Instagram business counts will receive the swipe up feature sooner or later. Currently, swipe up is only given to those with 10 thousand followers or more. 

 

  • Create A Hashtag

 

Hashtags work. They make your content viewable by anyone who has an interest in your event as it goes beyond just your followers. Hashtags can help you engage with friends by joining the conversation about your wedding. 

A hashtag in twitter helps you to reach beyond your follower list. While hashtagging about your wedding, use short word hashtags like #marywedspeter. Also, be careful to fill your content with too many hashtags, this may portray you as desperate and certainly dilutes your message. 

Even though hashtags are useful and drive engagement, they don’t always work on every single social media platform. They are not meant to be used on Facebook or LinkedIn. 

 

  • Design Ad’s To Promote The Event

 

Ads require little to no investment regarding money. However, if done correctly, it can help you reach a larger audience who you may not have connected with yet.

With Facebook Ads, for example, you can target a specific audience which is likely to get interested in your event.  

Always design a professional-looking Ad to give the best first impression. You can use a customizable template to help your event stand out. 

 

  • Post Images On Event Preparations

 

If you have a blog, the better. But that doesn’t mean social media can’t be of help.

There are plenty of plugins that prompt visitors to use or share the image. This will often lead to a reader sharing the image and spreading the word.

Ensure you post a beautiful and relevant image that your readers will be proud to pin, so use bright colors and sleek graphics to people to love and share. 

 

  • Relevant Quotes From Guest 

 

Guests and friends will definitely grace your wedding. A wedding without one or two guests speakers may be dull and so you need to feature one guest quote about your event. Although it’s not reasonably okay to disclose who your guests are, much of your audience may not even know who this person is or what they’re about.

By posting their quotes, you’re telling your audience what to expect on your big day and that they will learn a relevant lesson. Make the quotes and images shareable, most importantly.  

 

  • Post Continual

 

Of course, your audience needs an update of anything towards the wedding. They expect an update on the dates, theme, and venue details. 

Grab the photos of your wedding spot and talk about it continually. Choose a romantic getaway from the Caribbean and get your audience want to visit here early in advance. Who can resist the charm of Royal Barbados, a perfect spot for a total romance and relaxation, under the Caribbean sun!

 

  • Host a live video session on Facebook or Snapchat

 

Live videos are currently gaining immense popularity. Live videos will make your viewers ask questions which you can answer immediately concerning your event. You could also host a Snapchat story Q&A session to encourage participants to ask you questions about your big day. 

While doing a live video, use a beautiful image to catch followers’ attention and make you definitely stand out to your Facebook fans definitely. Encourage them to interact with you on other social media platforms to foster trust in you and your wedding event. 

 

Let’s know how to use QR Code!

A black and white logo kind of image having a random structure uneasy to understand, can be found now and then, on the packaging of electronic gadgets, or you can see it on business cards, presentations and even on the walls of the building. Many of us still don’t understand what is it meant for or what is this called?

Yes, I am talking about QR Code or the short form of Quick Response Code. This is a kind of square barcode (two dimensional) that was first developed and used in Japan. It is just like any other barcode to store in information in a machine-readable optical label. The data contained by a QR code can be anything from simple text, to an email addresses, to phone numbers and so on. These are used to take a piece of information from a transitory media to put it into your laptop, smartphone or any other smart and handy gadget.

QR Codes

 

QR codes store data using patterns of black dots and white spaces, arranged in a square grid. These patterns can be scanned and translated into human-readable information, with the help of an imaging device, like a camera or a scanner, although the most common way to scan QR codes nowadays is to use your smartphone’s camera and a specialized app for reading QR codes.

Now talking about its utility, it is excessively preferred nowadays because it can store (and digitally present) much more data, including URL links, Geo coordinates, and text. The other key feature of QR Codes is that instead of requiring a chunky hand-held scanner to scan them, many modern cell phones can scan them.

Scan QR Code

However, most people still have no idea what QR Code is all about, and many even fear using them particularly while using them for financial transactions, because of increasing cases of cyber frauds and the risk of getting dragged into electronic scams. Even while making payment at restaurants, hotels, petrol stations, business sites and payment getaways many people avoid using it. But the thing which most of us might not be knowing is that QR Code is extremely safer and simpler to use as compared to card-based payments in which one has to enter his confidential pin. However, it also has its fair share of small risk associated, which cannot be entirely eliminated.

QR Codes on Buildings

Nowadays, QR codes can be seen on magazine adverts, billboards, textbooks and even on T-shirts. Once you scan a QR code through your cell phone, it may give you details about that business, allowing users to search for nearby locations, or details about the person wearing the t-shirt, show you a URL which you can click to see a trailer for a movie.

QR Codes in Textbook

With the advancement of ICT’s and digitization invading every zone, QR Codes have now also been introduced into textbooks. A recent initiative has been taken by Department of State Education Research and Training (DSERT) to introduce QR codes into textbooks to enable students, teachers and parents to access study material digitally through online app Diksha. This inventiveness is to help students go an extra mile to learn and understand the subject, with the additional study material in their small handy devices. Through the Diksha app, students can scan QR Codes in their books and can access detailed information about a topic or the whole subject.

However, it is disheartening that not only the students but most teachers and parents still do not know how to use the QR codes implanted within coursebooks. Thus recently a piece of news has also been published by UdaipurBlog to make people aware of the initiative.

Hope, knowing its benefits, now we will embrace the positive developments like digital learning through QR codes, that technology is offering to us and make it beneficial for the growth of society.

No rains No strong wind flow: Still increasing cases of falling electric poles have become a major issue

slashed power pole

Udaipur,Even no heavy rainfall or strong wind flow has been observed during the past two weeks, still there are increasing cases of falling of power poles in Udaipur. Recently the falling of a power pole in Badgaon Panchayat, took a toll on lives of two innocent kids. Even after the mishap, local authorities and Nagar Nigam are taking no serious actions to avoid further damages.

A second similar case has been observed on Saturday morning when an electric pole fell on the ground in Dhar Panchayat region. The pole also had a small transformer affixed on it and luckily there were no vehicles or individuals standing near it, otherwise it could have done enormous damage to life and property. As per one of the witnesses “the pole suddenly started shuddering, observing which the people nearby distanced themselves from the pole and in a few seconds the pole flattened down on the road. After, observing the increasing number of such incidences a major question has been raised upon the work of Nagar Nigam. In such case people should remain alert and should not stand near any kind of poles, as even there are chances of getting electrocuting.

That’s why RJ Suri, who runs a morning show at Radio City 91.9 FM, which starts from 7 and runs till 11, he started sharing concerns about the same and talked about how to make his future more secure. Udaipurites even started to give their opinions to Suri. Everyone exclaimed that, yes, planning for tomorrow should be done by every person. Anyone can land into trouble and need a big amount of money to get out of it, you never know. When asked by RJ Suri, what to do for his secured future, some people advised him to buy a piece of land, while some insisted him to invest in mutual funds. Being sarcastic, few also advised Suri to open a shop of samosas, as we Udaipurites are very famous for our tickling taste buds. So now that so many investment ideas had come to Suri, it confused him. Hence, RJ Suri called a Financial Advisor in his show, who guided Suri about how can he plan for his coming tomorrow, along with this Udaipurites also started taking pieces of advice from the Financial Advisor for their secured future. So that now we have talked about a secured future, and everyone feels that it needs to be talked about. Udaipurites, if you too are concerned about your future, tune to 91.9 FM every morning at 7. RadioCity 91.9FM would also like to introduce Udaipurites to its print partner, Dainik Navjyoti. So, let’s come together to discuss and act upon our secured future.

कितना जानते है आप उदयपुर की इस ऐतिहासिक 450 साल पुरानी रथ यात्रा के बारे में ?

उदयपुर शहर और इसके आस पास ऐसे तो काफी धार्मिक स्थल प्रसिद्ध है लेकिन शहर के बीचों-बीच स्थित प्राचीन जगन्नाथ मंदिर या जगदीश मंदिर की माया अद्भुत और निराली है.

जगदीश मंदिर का निर्माण सन् 1652 में तत्कालीन मेवाड़ के महाराणा जगतसिंह प्रथम ने करवाया था. मंदिर में श्री जगदीश स्वामी जी की मूर्ति की प्राण प्रतिष्ठा के बाद इसी मंदिर से भगवान जगदीश स्वामी की जगन्नाथ रथ यात्रा तत्कालीन महाराणा जगतसिंह जी प्रथम ने आषाढ़ सुदी द्वितीया पर निकाली. तब से जगन्नाथ रथ यात्रा विगत कई वर्षों से निकाली जा रही है. उसी समय से ठाकुर जी, लालन जी और अन्य देवी देवता नगर भ्रमण पर निकलते है. जगन्नाथ रथ यात्रा केवल एक यात्रा ही नहीं है बल्कि उदयपुर की ऐतिहासिक और सांस्कृतिक धरोहर को खुद में संजोए हुए है.

साम्प्रदायिक सद्भाव बनाये रखती है ये विशेष रथ यात्रा:

जगदीश चौक में जन्मे कई संप्रदाय के लोग काफी लम्बे समय से रथयात्रा से जुड़े हुए हैंं जो अपने आप में एक साम्प्रदायिक सद्भाव की एक अलग मिसाल है. सभी संप्रदाय के लोग धर्मोत्सव समिति कार्यकर्ता के रूप में रथयात्रा व्यवस्था संभालने में अपना योगदान देते है इसमें झांकियों को क्रमबद्ध करवाना, रथयात्रा में आये  भक्तों को प्रसाद वितरण की व्यवस्था जैसे कार्य शामिल हैं. रथयात्रा किसी व्यक्ति विशेष, एक संगठन का नहीं बल्कि सभी समाजो के लिए बडे़ त्यौहार जैसा आयोजन है. इसमें सभी चाहे वो सनातन धर्म हो या कोई और, सभी इसमें बढ़ चढ़ कर भाग लेते है. सभी समाज के लोगो के साथ साथ सरकारी प्रशासन भी इस महोत्सव को सफल बनाने क लिए अपनी पूरी श्रमता से काम करते है.

भगवान जगन्नाथ के रजत रथ की खासियत:

भगवान जगन्नाथ स्वामी की इस पारम्परिक रथयात्रा में लोगों का उत्साह और भागीदारी बढ़ाने के लिए कुछ वर्ष पूर्ण ही भक्तों के सहयोग और ठाकुरजी के आशीर्वाद से रजत रथ का निर्माण करवाया गया. पहली बार 12 जुलाई 2002 को प्रभु जगन्नाथ एवं देवताओं को रजत रथ में विराजित कर नगर भ्रमण पर निकाला गया था. इस रजत रथ के निर्माण के लिए असम से विशेष तौर से सागवान की लकड़ी मंगवाई गयी. यह रथ 18 फीट ऊंचा है और इसे तैयार करने में 50 किलो चांदी का उपयोग हुआ है.  इसमें श्री जगन्नाथ स्वामी की प्रतिमा के साथ बलराम, सुभद्रा और सुदर्शन चक्र भी विराजमान हैं.

तो क्या आप तैयार है 4 जुलाई को होने वाली इस भव्य जगन्नाथ रथ यात्रा के साक्षी बंनने के लिए ?
