Living in Jaipur is as difficult or as easy as living any where else but here are some reasons why you will fall in love with Jaipur.
In the twelve months of a year you get to experience a whole gamut of weather in Jaipur. There is hot summer, cold winter, hot & humid monsoons & the season when the winter just drifts in. Just when you are thinking I have had enough of this heat or cold or the rains the seasons change, and life goes on.
And with the change of season the eating habits also change. What food! In the monsoons you eat choorma dal baati in some picnic spot in the lap of the Aravali’s which are covered with solid green because of the rains. If you do not have time for a picnic a spot of rain & people are flocking the sweet shops for their favourite snack like samosa, pyaz ki kachri or mirchi bara or if they are watching their weight then they are sipping a hot cup of tea or a cup of coffee at the CCD. In the winters they are eating lal mans or khichda or drinking hot rabri. In summers they drink lassi & eat different varieties of mangoes which keep changing as the summer progresses.
Jaipur is a heaven for the photography enthusiast. Jaipur has it all. Besides the concrete jungle it also has monuments,huge forts, mountains, an artificially maintained fresh water lake, ancient havelies, temples, bazars, palaces, festivals, friendly people, flowers,birds & photography accessory shops.
Jaipur is doing its best to catch up with the four metropolitan cities of New Delhi,Mumbai,Kolkata & Chennai but life is still laid back & the distances are not what they are in the other metros. You can still drop by a friend for a drink or dinner an evening.
The festivals Jaipur celebrate around the year make sure that there is no ennui in the life of the people of Jaipur. Some major festivals are, holi, deepawali, raakhi,teej,gangaur and makkar sankranti.
If you thought all of the above would keep the people of Jaipur busy enough around the year, you would be wrong, because there are the Jaipur weddings! Some people just go to court to get married but others have such weddings that people from all corner of the world come to Jaipur to get married in a Jaipuri wedding.
These are some of the top reasons to love Jaipur. If you think otherwise please list your choices here below.

If all goes as budgeted by 2015 eleven cities in Rajasthan will get LPG (Cooking Gas) delivered to their homes by pipeline. The eleven cities are Bharatpur, Alwar, Nimrana, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Bhilwara, Bhiwadi, Jaipur, Sriganganagar, Jodhpur and Ajmer. I am sure the authorities have studied the issues regarding the safety and the price of the gas to the end-user in-depth and seeing no downside are going forward with the proposal.
Bottled LPG is familiar to all of us it is more or less safe and more or less easily available. An infrastructure is in place and functioning more or less well. So why do we need to spend millions of rupees on putting in place a new delivery system which will be as useless as the system it is replacing as soon as we run out of CNG. As we all know the CNG supplies are finite. They will be gone soon enough and who knows what fuel or technology we will be using to cook our food by then. Further more the new gas delivery system will make a lot of jobs redundant. What will they work at? There is little need to ape the west in all it has done. There will be many studies showing where they went wrong. Why not take it from there? By pass their mistakes and adapt the technology to our local needs.
If a bloc of Flats wants to opt in for piped gas let them do so thru their society and bigger tanks. These societies will be vigilant about the safety of their own homes.
We ought to have more CNG and LPG fueling stations in Jaipur for our vehicles. It might improve the city air some.
Every Jaipur resident’s main concern is the supply of water to the city. What happens when the tubewells run dry? Now is the time to plan for that eventuality. Why not use the funds from the piped gas project to improve the prospects of water supply to the city and to improve and broaden the existing LPG distribution network.
Why not encourage people who keep animal husbandry to put up bio-gas plants to supply bio-gas as cooking fuel to nearby localities. That should get rid of bio-degradable waste and also produce manure. Milk giving animals are any farmers prized possessions. They will be cherished even in their old age if we can find a use for having them around even after they stop giving milk.
