How ‘Rolling Hills’ redefined new-year party scenes in Udaipur? The founder answers!

All of us just embarked on the new journey of the year 2023 with resolutions, hopes, and to-do lists for this year. While all of us have our ways of welcoming a new year, a party comprising dance and music scenes is one of the best ways to begin a year on a celebratory note. Speaking of New Year’s Eve parties, ‘Rolling Hills’ is one event most of the ‘party-holics’ in town must have heard of.

Like its last four seasons, the ‘Rolling Hills’ concluded on a grand note, setting higher benchmarks for the next edition. We had a conversation with Dushyant Periwal, the man behind the idea of ‘Rolling Hills’, for a complete insight into the journey of ‘Rolling Hills’ as a pioneer of large-scale new year parties in Udaipur.

Dushyant Periwal
Dushyant Periwal: Founder & Chairman – WDNE, Curator of Rolling Hills

How did the idea of Rolling Hills begin?

We have been organizing large-scale New Year’s parties for almost a decade now. However, in 2018, we decided to gear up by commencing a dedicated, game-changing edition of the New Year’s Eve celebration to upscale the entertainment quotient and magnitude of the event. With this thought at the core, the idea of ‘Rolling Hills’ was born in 2018, which dwelled in the city’s largest music festival. The first edition of this ‘Rolling Hills’ music festival was held successfully in 2018, and since then, it has been a ‘never-look-behind’ experience for us.

How has the journey of Rolling Hills been to date?

The entire journey of Rolling Hills, since the first edition in 2018 and the most recent one in 2022, has only been an upscaling journey, with every edition becoming bigger and better with every passing year. The most recent one was the fifth edition of Rolling Hills, and it was the biggest one to date, amassing a jam-packed house at Royal Retreat resort.

rolling hills new year party

How has Rolling Hills been instrumental in changing the party scenes in Udaipur?

Not long ago, Udaipur was known as a quaint little town, with little or negligible party scenes even on grand occasions like New Year’s Eve. With the venture of Rolling Hills, WDNE has been instrumental in uplifting the benchmarks of party culture, with every edition only becoming grander than the erstwhile edition. Apart from welcoming the residents of Udaipur, Rolling Hills also caught the attention of other cities of Rajasthan and nearby states, which has only added to the scale of the event.

What was this year’s edition of Rolling Hills all about?

The last edition in 2021 was graced by the presence of renowned DJ Aqeel. However, the 2022 edition just became a scaled-up event with ten artists putting up a two-day show at the Royal Retreat Resort. The lineup included DJ Lemon, DJ Nash, DJ Cyrus, DJ Tasnneem, DJ Hashtag, DJ Candice, BhuvIn, Mihir, DJ Veeshal and DJ Shilen Sharma.

We thank all these artists, along with the public gathered, for making this two-day fest a memorable experience while looking forward to the 2023 edition.

ईशा फाउंडेशन के सद्गुरु, यानि जग्गी वासुदेव बुधवार को उदयपुर शहर पहुंचे। शहर में उनका ज़ोरों-शोरों से स्वागत किया गया। मेवाड़ पूर्व राजपरिवार के सदस्य लक्ष्यराज सिंह जी ने सिटी पैलेस में सद्गुरु जी का भाव विभोर अभिनन्दन किया। दरबार हॉल में दोनों के बीच संवाद भी हुआ। सद्गुरु माटी बचाने के लिए 100 दिन की 30000 किमी यात्रा मिट्टी बचाओ अभियान (जर्नी टू सेव सॉइल) के तहत बाइक पर निकले।

सद्गुरु भविष्य में मिट्टी संकट के बारे में जागरूकता फैलाने के लिए 25 देशों से गुजरते हुए अंतिम चरण में गुजरात के रास्ते भारत पहुंचे। उदयपुर से राजस्थान में उनका प्रवेश हुआ। इस अभियान के तहत वे दुनिया का ध्यान विलुप्त होती मिट्टी की ओर कर रहे हैं। लोगो को मिट्टी की सुरक्षा, पोषण और उसे बनाये रखने के लिए निति की मांग करने के लिए प्रेरित कर रहे है ताकि 193 देशों में मिट्टी की जैविक सामग्री को कम से कम 3-6% तक बढ़ाने और बनाये रखने की दिशा में नीतिगत बदलाव लाया जा सके।

लक्ष्यराज जी ने संवाद के दौरान पूछा की कोरोना के दो साल आपदा भरे थे, लोग आज भी मानसिक परेशानी में है, इससे कैसे उबर सकते है? सद्गुरु जी ने कहा की जो लोग इस महामारी में अपनों को खोकर मानसिक परेशानियों से जूझ रहे है, उन्हें नई सोच, नई ऊर्जा के साथ उनके सपनों को साकार करने के लिए फिर से उठ खड़ा होना होगा। यही जीवन की नई उमंग है। सवाल जवाब के चलते सद्गुरु जी ने ये भी कहा की वैश्विक स्तर पर बड़ी नीति लाकर ही परिस्थिति का संरक्षण किया जा सकता है। मिट्टी माताओं की माँ है और माटी को माँ मानकर मानवता के साथ इसे संरक्षित करना होगा। इसी से भावी पीढ़ी बेशुमार मुश्किलों से बच पाएगी।

सद्गुरु जी कौन है?
सद्गुरु का असली नाम सद्गुरु जग्गी वासुदेव है। उनके बचपन का नाम जगदीश है। सद्गुरु का जन्म 3 सितंबर 1957 को मैसूर, कर्नाटक में हुआ। जग्गी वासुदेव एक लेखक भी हैं जिन्होंने 100 से भी ज्यादा पुस्तकें लिखी है। इन्हें भारत सरकार की तरफ से 2017 में पद्म विभूषण अवार्ड से भी सम्मानित किया गया। जग्गी वासुदेव की एक लाभ रहित संस्था भी है जिसका नाम ईशा फाउंडेशन है। यह संस्था मानव सेवा तथा योग सिखाने का काम कर रही है। यह संस्था विश्व के कई देशों में काम करती है जिसमें प्रमुख रुप से अमेरिका, सिंगापुर, इंग्लैंड, लेबनान, और ऑस्ट्रेलिया में योग सिखाने का काम कर रही है।

सद्‌गुरु ने आपने अपने आश्रम में आदियोगी की इतनी विशाल मूर्ति बनवाई है। जो भी वहां जाता है, वह उस मूर्ति को देखकर अभिभूत हो जाता है। आदियोगी भगवान शिव की 112 फुट की प्रतिमा को गिनीज बुक ऑफ वर्ल्ड रिकॉर्ड्स ने दुनिया की सबसे बड़ी आवक्ष प्रतिमा के रूप में दर्ज किया है। इस बात की जानकारी गिनीज बुक ने अपनी वेबसाइट के जरिए साझा की है। ‘आदियोगी’ के नाम से बनी शिव की अर्धमूर्ति की ऊंचाई 112.4 फीट है, 24.99 मीटर चौड़ी और 147 फीट लंबी है।
