  • Culture: Rani Laxmi Chundawat, author of many books on Rajasthan and perhaps one of the oldest royals at 94, reminisces the scale and intricacy of the dishes of her youth: “Each king had at least 10 cooks in his personal kitchen, members of the Wahri caste in Marwar and of the Bhoi caste in Mewar. Breakfast comprised a minimum of 10 dishes. Each king had a ‘ration’ of mewa (dry fruits). They were also assigned rotis of a particular weight, which would be served with each meal. My father, the rawat of Deogarh, for instance, had a sawa ser ki roti, which was served to him and then distributed among his retainers and their families.

  • Culture: The Ramdevra Fair is the most popular fair of Western Rajasthan. The village Ramdevra is known after Baba Ramdevji, a Tanwar Rajput and a Saint who took “Samadhi” (conscious exit from the mortal body) in 1458 AD. He is venerated by Muslims also as “Ram Shah Pir”. Irrespective of their caste, creed or religious affiliations, his devotees throng the shrine dedicated to the saint. This year the fair is from 19th August 2012 till 01st September 2012.
