Aint that too catastrophic because Udaipur a city being in the south of Rajasthan was amongst the one of the most coolest city due to its green environment and lakes.

But this was undone in 2010 when the temperature of the city crossed 45*c in the month of May itself which broke all the previous records heat. This Has lead to cause of loo(wind), more people suffering from fever etc.

But the ‘Unstrange’ Thing i myself noticed was this heat caused a lot of harm to vegetation which included plants, trees, vegetables etc.

Green udaipur

“We all moan and groan about the loss of the quality of life through the destruction of our ecology, and yet each one of us, in our own little comfortable ways, contributes daily to that destruction. It’s time now to awaken in each one of us the respect and attention our beloved mother deserves.”-

Quote by actor, environmental supporter, Ed Asner

With the increase in pollution all around we need to be more careful towards our environment. In Udaipur, the pollution is increasing swiftly which is a great concern for us. The number of vehicles, the electricity consumption and emission of greenhouse gases by the factories is increasing day by day hence increasing the carbon footprints of every individual. Deforestation and wastage of water is reaching on the peek. Waste from houses is dumped into rivers and lakes which not only pollute the surroundings but it also distort the scenic beauty. We all are in need to show some more interest in escalating foliage in our place. Taking small initiatives by every individual will be greatly effective in protecting our environment. Few ways by which we can make the environment of Udaipur or the whole world rather are:


The common things we can recycle are

  • Aluminum cans
  • Newspapers
  • Steel containers
  • Glass
  • Plastic materials and many more.
  • Changing habits in kitchen: utilize reusable containers for food storage as a substitute of wrapping food in foil or plastic wrap. You can also use unbleached coffee filters, which does not produce the fatal toxin dioxin in its manufacturing. Use rags to clean up spills instead of paper towels, and use biodegradable things.
  • Use cloth bag instead of plastic bags: Plastic bags are non biodegradable even if they say they are they do not decompose totally. Also the ink is made up of cadmium, and is highly toxic when it is released. Whereas paper bags are reusable and biodegradable. However supermarkets use paper that has never been recycled before and they always say “recyclable” not “recycled”. Here is what you can do: if your purchase is small don’t take any bag, this alone could save hundreds of millions of bags. Bring a cloth bag when you shop.
  • Compost: Return your organic waste where it belongs: the soil! Rather than sending banana peels, grass clipping, etc. to the municipal dump, start a compost pile instead. Compost also makes your plants stronger and healthier, reducing the need for fertilizers and chemical pesticides. Don’t forget that many cities have municipal composting programs for your yard waste.


These few things will help to clean our city and will make it more beautiful.

Sajjangarh palace

5 kilometers to the west of Udaipur there is a hill named Bansdara which is 3100 feet above the sea level. Located at the highest altitude of the hill is the “Sajjangarh Palace” also known as “Monsoon Palace” which gives an excellent view in all the directions.

The best thing about this place is the serpentine road to reach the palace. As this was the highest place in neighborhood, Maharana Sajjan Singhji started the construction of the palace for his summer residence. Original plan for its construction was for nineteen storeyed structure. However, by the time one storey and half was constructed, the Maharana died prematurely in 1884 A.D. and the plans were curtailed. Maharana Fateh Singhji however completed the palace on the hill which contain apartment for ladies, a large Gateway and an enclosing wall.

This is now derelict palace dominates the skyline 2468 feet high atop of bansdara mountain. It is visible from a great distance and affords splendid scenic views which has made it one of the best place of Udaipur. The edifice looks its best during the rainy season which no one would like to miss.
