The Royal Rajasthani Capital City of Jaipur was a great place of visit for the last couple of days. The desire to explore this great Rajputana increased many folds while getting to have a little glimpse during this visit for a professional purpose.
The traditional & ethnic culture proudly put up in the 5 star resort property of Chokhi Dhani appealed greatly especially the village fair ground which got alive every evening with Rajasthani colours and flavours.
The glimpses of the older city streets, the forts on top of the Aravalli hillocks, the Hawa Mahal, the City Palace & Jantar Mantar took back to ancient history. The museum inside the city palace housing artillery, wardrobe etc of the Rajput rulers gave a great taste of the warrior clan that dwelt there.
Watching India win the Cricket World Cup sitting in the open lawn of Chokhi Dhani with Large TV Screen giving the flavours of watching it in a stadium, was amazing especially with a group of young enthusiastic fans, loads of cheer, Indian flags, Fireworks and DJ etc... Three Cheers for my Motherland... Hip Hip Hoorray!... Hip Hip Hoorray!!... Hip Hip Hoorray!!!
