Who Is an IAS officer..?? IAS i.e. Indian Administrative Service officer is basically a term used for collectors or the ones who roams in a “LAL BATTI” car if I talk in a typical common man language.

Will only a ban on Gutka help?

Gutkas -
Gutkas –

“Intake Of Gutka Is Injurious To Health”, how many times do we all have read this line displaying on tv and pre-film commercials of Gutkas?

But, does any one of us even bother to do something to stop this unwanted habit of gutkas which is continuously spreading its vicious circle amongst the Udaipies. Many people on paan shops and kirana stores can be seen purchasing and consuming gutkas at a large-scale and making the small-scale gutka traders richer and richer. Although, gutkas are not alone the culprits, cigarettes have to be blamed equally for spoiling the future of the nation.

However, a step taken by the government towards stopping the habit of gutkas is initiated by banning the sale of pan masala and gutka in Jaipur and Pune is worth appreciating but I still think the step is incomplete unless it also ban smoking in public places and sale of cigarettes to minors. In addition, I believe that mere restriction on sale will not bring out any difference, its production have to be stopped as well.

The Gutka traders are obviously against the ban and they claim that like ban on polythene packing this ban is also not going to work for longer period because gutkas and pan masala is an addiction to regular takers which cannot be removed easily and until then this ban is also an opportunity for the black-marketers to become active. So, this time the officials of our health minister have to be extra careful and strict regarding the following of the ban and their decision of fining the culprit.

Also, the regular customers of the traders are also not supporting the ban as some of them think that taking a good quality paan masala or a high-branded gutka will not cause much harm to their health, so let me tell to all of them that a poison is a poison in every sense regardless it is branded or not and it imparts upon its user a “buzz” somewhat more intense than that of tobacco.

So, Udaipies next time if any one of you go for gutka, paan masala or a cigarette just think once the harm it has already caused or it is capable of causing.

All the above points are valid in their own place but the real questions are :

If gutkas are banned then why not cigarettes..??

Do this ban also be exercised in Udaipur as well..??

Think and decide for your own good….




Haryali Amavasya: Commencement of Monsoon and Feel of Nature


Haryali Amavasya, from our childhood we celebrate this day as a holiday and enjoy the haryali amavasya ka Mela at saheliyon ki bari Road but apart from this, the religious value of this day cannot be overlooked. From the age of our ancestors pujas are conducted on this day to please Lord Shiva. The Shravan month which signifies the commencement of monsoon, this day has its value in making us feel our nature again and the greenery of our Lakecity.
But, the real taste to this festival is added by the famous Rabri Malpuas of Udaipur which is my and I am sure all of us personal favourite. The lush green gardens and parks of Udaipur can be seen full of families enjoying the season and their holiday to the fullest. And now comes the most amazing part, The Haryali Amavasya Mela which begins from Saheliyon ki Bari Road and is spread till Fatehsagar and can be enjoyed by the Udaipies today. The various joy rides and swings, street vendors shouting and the happiness filled noices of children fill the surroundings with enjoyment. The pakodas in little rain can be enjoyed with tea. In addition to which there are Gubbare, Pupadias, pav-bhaji and many more.

The fair continues the next day in which entry of males is restricted and the female folks enjoy the fair and the centre of attraction are the jewellery stalls,and the colorful pins and accessories which they can buy at so cheap prices and feel happy about the same. People come together, dine and enjoy this day of the rainy season to its fullest.

But the sad part is that this jubiliant fair has lost its value in recent years. The so-called status minded people regard this fair is meant only for tribal people and this is the biggest reason why it has lost its value. We should understand that this fair is a symbol of our tradition and culture which needs to be preserved in the same way it was done in the past.
So, Udaipies how many of you will now make your way towards the fair this evening..??
I am sure you all will have a blast visiting there and yes do not forget to mention and share your fun-filled experiences in the comment box below…

Resident Doctors or Resident Devils?

Resident Doctors and Police - Credits:
Resident Doctors and Police – Credits:

A Doctor is regarded and worshiped as GOD by a common man, they are trusted by the people who hand over the lives of their near and dear ones on them and a doctor always tries his/her best to save the life of the patient in the operation theatre.

But, does this fact ALWAYS holds correct….???

Well this  fact has been proved as a myth by the resident doctors of M.B. Hospital when they behaved brutally with  a help seeking son who came to them so that his mother could be saved. According to the sources, a 45-year old woman, Indira Kanwar who resides in Banswara was admitted in M.B. Hospital from past few days. There was no complain by her for the first few days but on 8th July 9.30 p.m. she suddenly started feeling uneasy and reverted about this to her son Jitendra Singh Chauhan who is a guest faculty at CTAE. But when the son ran to seek help from the resident doctor on duty that time, to his sudden shock he was ignored for the first time,  he didn’t lose hope and tried the second time but this time also his efforts were in vain. When helpless, Jitendra tried raising his voice against this injustice, the doctors instead of attending the lady started quarreling with him and other doctors also came over and collectively started beating Jitendra. The son who came there to make his mother well again was brutally beaten and in the fight fractured his arm, fingers and also bruised his ear. The doctors also misbehaved with the guard who came to rescue and stop the fight. This also was not enough that the doctors started beating other relatives too including the ladies. In addition, On the top of it the media also became their target that night.

President of Lakecity Press Club, Mr. Akhtar Hussain and others lodged an FIR against the doctors at Hathipole Police Station.

However, the Police and media controlled the situation but it raises several question marks on our medical council which needs to be answered…..

The biggest question is does their conscience  allow them to perform such activities..??

Happenings like these create a huge setback in the minds of the patients and their relatives which creates a negative image for every doctor. We as the members of Team urge and request all the doctors to maintain their dignity and be calm and composed as they are kept in the place of God and they should respect that.

Jaisamand Lake: An Awesome Option for this Weekend

It’s a weekend again. Our favorite SUNDAY is here again and a rocking plan for spending a happening weekend “Banta Hai Boss”. After a week full of hard work, tensions, classes and pressure of completing our targets we all need a day full of fun with friends and family. The soaring high temperature which is increasing day by day makes me think of spending my weekend at a place that can make me forget the uneasiness caused by this heat.

Jaisamand Hangout

So, Udaipies this week’s hangout option is JAISAMAND LAKE. Just 48 kilometers away from Lakecity, one can easily reach the second largest manmade lake of Asia for spending a rocking holiday. Built by Maharana Jai Singh in 1685, Jaisamand, also known as Dhebar Lake came into existence while constructing a dam on Gomti River. Besides enjoying the scenic beauty of the place you also have the advantage of enjoying the amazing backdrop of the lake which consists of a summer palace of Udaipur Queens.

Well, as we can’t visit an island in a day but Jaisamand fulfills the desire of island lovers too as it comprises of not one but seven islands. And now my favourite part, the lake has graceful marble steps which will take you to the journey of heaven when your feet will touch the lake water. At the top of the stairs is a Shiv temple for religious people. Yes, the same that showed up in the serial “Yeh rishta kya kehlata hai”. You can enjoy boat ride in the calm waters of the lake too, and have your lunch at the island resort. Wow, the hunch is adrenaline rush for itself. If you plan packing your own home made lunch for the family picnic, do have it at the “chhatris”(shade), but yes again, beware of the monkeys. They are quite professional beggars for food and irritating enough.

Jaisaman Hangout

But wait, there’s is one more thing to be added in the “to visit” list which is the sanctuary near the lake. Yes, the place also serves the interest of nature and animal lovers; the lake has a sanctuary nearby that inhabitates different species of flora and fauna.

So, Udaipies what you all are waiting for just pack in your stuff and set off to actually personify the pleasures I just mentioned. Happy Weekend To all, and don’t forget to share your weekend experience with us. 🙂
