Dessert Festival 2018, Jaisalmer Rajasthan

Hey Everyone,

I once read that a Dessert is a place without expectation. Until recently I believed that but on my recent trip to Rajasthan’s Interiors I saw things peoples totally unexpected and got completely amazed by the hospitality, patience, and perseverance of Rajasthan, let alone dessert.

Even with the harshest of Sun & toughest of climate, Rajasthan offers warmest of smiles with hearts as wide as their desserts

 

Speaking of unexpected, we got to experience the opening ceremony of Maru Mahotsav or Dessert festival 2018 in Jaisalmer. We had no idea of its grandeur & the effort locals and government put in it to make it so.

There were Camels decorated with brightest of Pom-Poms, Jaisalmer’s Royal family, Men with silver swords with facial hair even bigger than my whole face. Ladies clad in traditional attires and lust-worthy jewelry.

Dessert Festival is celebrated every year for three days prior to full moon in Jan-Feb. It celebrates the prophecy, according to which Lord Krishna told Arjun about a Yadav successor who will set up the kingdom on Trikuta Hill(Triangular hill). Prophecy becomes true when Rawal Jaiswal a Yadav successor established Jaisalmer in 12th Century after his name.

The government now equally celebrates the festival as it enhances Tourism. Even BSF & Army take participation in various competitions like Camel race and Fighter plane stunts.

We couldn’t stay until the whole festival but it was surely a delight to experience the opening ceremony of Maru Mohatsav. If you plan to visit Jaisalmer do it during the festival.

Share with me if you have been to Jaisalmer and how was your experience.

Stay tuned for more post from Jaisalmer.

Bye..

2017…Dispatched from Desk

Hey, 2017…

However, clichè it may sound but 2017 was whisked in the blink of an eye… felt like yesterday I was writing the goodbye to 2016. but that’s Life I believe.

I feel highly grateful and thankful for this year to be what it was. I accomplished the targets I had set for myself. some of them still ongoing & some I am putting an effort into to eventually make them effortless.

We traveled well this year and while doing that made memories we will cherish forever.

Long drive and stopping by for a random picture.

I got inked, a long pending wish I had to myself. It says “Free Bird” because I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to have a super supporting family. The Support and Strength I get from them is the wind beneath my wings.
