Rajasthan-An Introduction

Rajasthan is one of the most colorful states of India where one can have an actual and clear picture of tradition and culture of this vast country. Every view of Rajasthan is fascinating and has hidden an enormous beauty of the place in them. The mind blowing sand-dunes of the Thar Desert, the arid valleys of the Aravallies, the richness and delicacy of the palaces, the beauty and piousness of the temples, the architectural grandeur of the hill forts, the traditionalism of the villages and the simplicity of the people all describes the velour of the place. Besides this Rajasthan is also known as the land of the tiger, the camel, the peacock and the great Indian Bustard.
The state is enriched with a glorious past of bravery and chivalry of its hero who have won the admiration of the world. People in the state still live and die here by their words. On one hand it is a centre of bravery, dedication and strength and on the other hand it is blended with love, sacrifice and compassion. According to the renowned historian Col. Todd: -Every single flower on the land of the Rajasthan has danced in the scent of bravery and sacrifice. Not a wave of air has passed when brave men did not bow at the feet of the war goddess. There has been no house where no brave soldier was born to fight for the prestige of the nation. Not one hut has existed where mothers did not sing the songs of velour and dedication. Here people have sacrificed their lives for their words and promises and mothers have always prepared their children to dedicate themselves in the feet of their motherland. The history and various monuments of the state witness the story of the bravery and dedication.
The spirit of the people and their artistic and cultural traditions are preserved in their folklore; in their music and dance; in their fairs and festivals; in their arts and crafts. Various dialects are used here in speech like in Udaipur the dialect used is Mewari while Marwari is spoken in Jodhpur, Bikaner, Jaisalmer and Ajmer. The Rajasthani language, which is an offshoot of western Hindi, is not recognized in the constitution of India. Thus, Hindi is the official language of the state.
Besides this the Palaces that has turned to hotels gives a pleasant feeling of royal living along with the description of the history of the place. The hotel provides one with royal facilities. The luxury train ‘Palace on Wheels’ is one of its own kind. It reflects the ancient gallantry tradition of the state and a comfortable ride to the various prestigious places of the state with all the facility and comforts required. Thus a visit to Rajasthan is an experience to be savored for life rather than just enjoyment.
