Is Black Fungus a Threat for People in Udaipur, Rajasthan?

The only drug that can prevent this fungus and infection is a liposomal amphotericin-B injection, which is in short supply on the market for now. Families of suffering patients are compelled to stroll from place to place in search of an injection. As a result, the local bodies have asked the federal government for this injection. Aside from that, the government has made an order with the Serum Institute of India for 2500 vials of this injection to be purchased.

Here are some facts as to why Black Fungus is a threat for people living in Udaipur and nearby cities in Rajasthan:

  • In the second wave, the disease’s most severe and rapid cases have appeared in the state. The first case in the second wave was recorded in the Jodhpur-Bikaner region.
  • In Rajasthan, two patients have died as a result of Black Fungus, while more than 80 others have shown deadly symptoms. Some people had to have their eyes removed as well.
  • More than 70 cases of black fungus have been reported in Jaipur’s private hospitals. Rajasthan has reported the most number of casualties.

What is Black Fungus, and why is it so deadly?

While fungal infections aren’t as uncommon or new as COVID-19, the number of instances has increased lately. The illness appears to have the most impact on people who have severe COVID-19 infections, causing people who have recovered from COVID-19 to end up in hospitals again with strange facial deformities. Black fungus infection, also known as fatal Mucormycosis, is caused by a group of moulds known as ‘mucormycetes,’ which are found in the air and create complications when inhaled by an unwell patient, spreading to the sinus cavities, lungs, and chest cavities. Steroids are prescribed to corona patients to lessen the consequences of the infection. This lowers the patient’s immunity. As a result, the patient’s blood sugar level begins to rise suddenly. Mucormycosis is one of the negative effects of the drugs used to treat Corona patients. This condition creates a dry nose at first. The inside of the nose begins to dry out and become numb. The face and soles of the feet go numb as well and the face begins to swell, while the teeth are seen crooked. In this condition, fungus grows around the eye’s veins, blocking the central retinal artery’s blood supply. In most people, this causes their eyesight to last forever. Furthermore, the fungus creeps to the lower jaw in many patients.

Patients with comorbidities or those using drugs that reduce their immune system’s ability to fight off environmental microorganisms are the most vulnerable to the effects of black fungus, according to ICMR guidelines. Poor contaminated water resources utilised for the manufacture of medical oxygen and ambient variables have been suggested as possible causes of Mucormycosis infection in COVID-19 patients on prolonged oxygenation support. There have also been worries that COVID-19 individuals with severe diabetes are the most vulnerable to the disease. Uncontrolled blood sugar levels not only make it simpler for people to catch serious illnesses, but they also provide an easier surface for fungi to thrive and transmit symptoms.

What are the Symptoms of Black Fungus?

The black fungus has a high mortality rate of 50%. However, if the disease is detected early enough, it can be effectively treated. The disease, known as ‘rhino-orbital-cerebral mucormycosis,’ primarily affects the face and can result in distinct facial distortions.

Aside from that, the condition might cause acute swelling and inflammation in the sinus tube. If you have recovered from COVID-19 and are wondering about how to locate the Black Fungus, then have a look at these distinct symptoms, which you should be on the lookout for:

  • Black crusts around the nose
  • Headaches and swelling in/and around the forehead
  • Swelling in the cheeks, eyes or parts of the face
  • Vision loss or partial blindness
  • Pulmonary infections (Fungus growth in the respiratory passage).


After the Coronavirus, Rajasthan is now experiencing a severe threat by the new epidemic that is Black Fungus or Mucormycosis. However, we are bound to stay strong in these challenging times. UdaipurBlog requests you to stay safe, always wear a mask when going out, sanitize your hands regularly, and most importantly, maintain Social Distancing. Stay tuned for more such updates on the Second Wave of Coronavirus in Udaipur and beyond. Meanwhile, go get vaccinated to safeguard your family and yourself from the COVID-19.

5 Things that will make Udaipur the Ultimate Tourist Destination

Udaipur has always been famous as a tourist destination thanks to its serenity and natural beauty. Obviously, it is the most beautiful city on the planet.

But yes, as they say, there is always a space for improvement. There are certain things that can make udaipur the ultimate travel destination. These things when fulfilled, will surely help the tourist flow to this Awesome City.

1. Water Park/ Amusement Park:

Be it the Essel world of Mumbai or Wonder La of Bengaluru, these have always been in the places that tourist include in their must visit list. So how about a amusement park or a Water Park in our city. This will attract the tourists for sure and also give a new place to the local people as well as the tourists.

2. A Cool Official Website:

website of udaipur
Poorest Website of Beautiful Udaipur we could ever have. Screenshot of:, Atleast correct the spelling of “Website”

While planning for vacations, the tourists definitely searches for places on the Internet. They will research about the place they are visiting, especially the ones from outside India. So Udaipur must have cool, official website with plenty of photographs.

(P.S.: While reviewing about this point on Internet, we just found that the official website of Udaipur has shifted to : , We won’t take a minute to admit that It is the worst site we can ever have!!  Is it seriously the website for the World’s Tourist Hub? We hope that the officials read this post and work for better alluring website.)

3. Adventure Activities:

water sports in udaipur

Like we love having variety in our lunch/dinner, tourists visiting will definitely require a variety in the places they are visiting. Adventure sports will always work as a great option for them. Also Udaipur has that potential to develop Adventure Sports as it is surrounded by many mountains and water streams. We seek our local government to work over this new class of Adventure Tourim.

4. International Flights:

Photo via:

Foreigners visiting Rajasthan may prefer Jaipur over Rajasthan the simple reason being better connectivity. No direct flights or even a stop, has been a negative point for Udaipur. If the number of International Flights are increased, the foreign tourists visiting will also increase as being directly proportional.

5. Night Life

nightlife in udaipur

Udaipur lacks way behind in the field of Night Life. Our city has zero night life with no clubs, discos or places to Eat. Development of good pubs and discos can change city’s Night Life condition. This will surely attract more tourists and allow them to enjoy their Journey in Udaipur.

Also better Local transport and cleanliness will leave a soft corner for our city among tourists which will attract them towards our city again.

These 5 are the major things that need to be taken care of for development of Udaipur as the Ultimate Tourist Destination and therefore going higher in the Tourist’s rankings.

We Hope our Government and Businessmen from Udaipur come up to enhance the present Status.

5 Things I really hate about Udaipur

I Hate Udaipur

Udaipur popularly known as the ‘City of Lakes’ fills the mind with thrill and excitement at the thought of Natural beauty, blooming lakes and majestic palaces. Yes, it has been rated as one of the most beautiful cities if the world, but have you ever thought that with the increase in pollution and population and other stuff what this city has turned into..?? Well, I’ll tell you… The following are the five things what I dislike and want to improve about Udaipur :-


Ghats turned to Dhobi Ghats:

Udaipur has many lakes. That’s the reason why it is also known as the Lakecity. But these lakes are being turned into Dhobhighats. The local people use the water of these lakes to wash clothes. Especially, Lake Pichola is mostly highlighted. The grill that is been placed at the side of the lake is been used as clothes line. All this is just hampering the beauty of the place. And if the concerned authorities don’t take any immediate and strict action the place will lose its attraction and natural beauty.


Problem of Parking:

Many tourists visit Udaipur to see its scenic beauty and lakes. But these places do not have a proper parking place for vehicles. People park their vehicles in haphazard way. Such a situation further leads to chaos and inconvenience for the commuters. So the administrative authorities must look over this condition so that there is a smooth flow of traffic.


Pollution Problem:

The problem of pollution is throughout our country and the same is with Udaipur too. If you go around through the houses of Udaipur, you will find that most of them will have the ratio of Members: Vehicles be 2:1. The results could be disastrous if the pollution problem is not taken into consideration. The rapid growth in the number of vehicles have resulted in traffic jams and parking problems.



Udaipur’s tourist places are not maintained properly regarding CLEANLINESS. Every now and then you may see that there are pictures of untidiness are there in newspapers and the authorities are continuously needed to be reminded about this issue. The city is still waiting for a strict action of the authorities towards cleanliness.


International Flights:

The next thing relates with the Flights especially international flights. The tourist coming from abroad doesn’t directly land in Udaipur. Instead, they have to bear discomfort in order to directly reach Udaipur. Thus, international flights will increase networking and pull towards more and more tourists and industrialists.


Friends, we are the lucky ones who live in such a beautiful city. Numerous people visit our city to see its beauty and exquisiteness. We should be now more conscious and responsible to turn our city into a heaven. We shall also stop others from tearing down our city’s attractiveness.


5 things I hate about The Celebration Mall, Udaipur

The Celebration Mall Logo
This Logo is a Property of The Celebration Mall and is taken from their website


The Celebration Mall, Bhuwana : A joint development of CapitaMalls Asia & AIPL (Advance India Project Limited) is the first and only Heritage Mall of Udaipur offering wide ranging services of a Mall. But there are certain things we hate about it and it will be really appreciable if they can work on this.. !! And make this Mall – A happening place to Be 🙂

Proper Drinking Facility:

While checking out the complaint/suggestion book of the celebration mall I found that the most hated problem is of “Drinking Water Facility”. This problem is prolonging and no one is taking care of it. Can’t the mall Authorities add Proper Drinking facilities in the Mall to facilitate people???

No Personal Celebration in Celebration Mall:

For this point I would refer to one of the incidents me and my friends faced.. ! It was one of my friends birthday and we all planned to have birthday celebration in our ‘Celebration’ Mall. We were ready with the birthday cake but there was no place to cut the cake; Finally we found our space on the 3rd Floor in front of the local shoppee zone. We found a table to place the birthday cake and when we were about to cut the cake the security guards caught us all and stopped us to ‘Celebrate’.  So My question is why can’t a Mall named ‘THE CELEBRATION MALL’ have some space(apt suggestion for this will be to get a FOOD COURT soon!) to really ‘celebrate’ Waiting to hear the answer from them.. 😉

Not enough place to sit:

How do you feel when after buying a McDonald’s Meal on Sunday you don’t find enough space to sit comfortably and have your meal. I hope that sentence was enough to describe my feelings. This BIG Mall with 90,000 sq. ft Area don’t even have enough space to make proper seating for people who come there. 🙂 Anyways.. I hope they improve this too 😀

No Locker Rooms:

Again would add my personal incident in this heading.. 😛 Being a responsible citizen I always care to wear Helmet as my Local Traffic Police suggests. One fine day me along with my friends planned to go for movie; Maybe it was my first time to enter into celebration mall with a Helmet. 😛 When we went to PVR we found that no valuables were allowed inside. There was no place to keep our helmet or bags in the complete mall. As my tickets were already booked so I had to keep my Helmet outside in open space(maybe some construction site inside!!). After enjoying the movie with fear of losing my Helmet when we came out I found that I have really lost my HELMET worth : 1200Rs.  I don’t know whom should I blame is it the Mall Authority or PVR. I had my point so stated it here 😛

Official Website ain’t updated about Events:

Every now and than there are various events that keep happening in The Celebration Mall (Maybe In order to prove itself that it really celebrates :/ ) but their Official Website: is never updated about these events and schedules or even photos of these events.. 🙁 Its our generous suggestion to keep us all updated about your mall happenings through your site because we have more reasons to love it than to rather have 5 things to hate about it 🙂

There are still many points people hate such like not being allowed to clicks pictures inside, can’t run or have fun inside etc. Do Share your comments what are your views about the celebration mall. We will definitely inform the Mall Authorities and wait for their answers about this.. 😉



  • has taken the initiative to keep the site updated with upcoming events.
  • This Article was forwarded to Mall staff but No response from the Mall staff yet including the Managerial Team. :/

Top – 5 Unforgettables in Udaipur of 2010

2010 has come to an end. Now “Next Year” is only “Next Day” away.
But this year has given us tremendous memories, many good and few unfortunately bad. So to get u into a quick flashback of the whole year, without stressing your brain a lot, here I start my illustration for the year.


I ‘m Lovin’ It

Now this statement will be heard in almost every home in Udaipur.
Yes my dear Udaipies. Finally McDonalds has opened its first outlet in Lakecity at the Celebration Mall in Bhuvana.

Lakecity to create Management Machos

Finally after so much issue on the matter of IIT in udaipur, finally Udaipur is blessed with an IIM, proposed to be at baleecha. The proposed IIM for the time being will however be run in the newly constructed polymer science building in MLSU.

Earthquake trembles Lakecity

10th November 4:16 a.m. would be one of the bad times of our city, when we were shook by an earthquake. However thankfully, there was no damage to life or property.

Rolling, Camera, and Action…!!!

Udaipur’s spectacular beauty is simply irresistible. To capture this picturesque beauty of the world’s no. 1 city, many movie and TV artists entered our Lakecity. The year saw rise in global visitors for the same reason. To mention a few, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (starring Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire fame), Mission Impossible 4 (starring Tom Cruise)( as reported by unverified sources) ,Rani (a French TV serial), Master Chef India (Indian TV serial hosted by Akshay Kumar on Star Plus), Impatient Vivek, and a Documentary from Seria was also shot in our own Lakecity.

The day the Lakecity stood still

Monsoons 2010 brought in many expectations to Udaipies about the dried up lakes. Every prayer was answered by the almighty. The dried lakes soon turned into brimful lakes. Finally the day was 9th September when the lakes overflowed after 4 years. However, a sad part associated with the happy news was that a tourist drowned in a boat accident in the lake Fatehsagar.
