Forum Celebration Mall Udaipur

Largest and the most fancied amid other Udaipur malls, Forum Celebration Mall features the architectural majesty, which the city boasts from ancient times, showcasing magnificent arches and the prodigious central dome. However, what distinguished this mall from other malls in town is the contemporary youth culture which has been spinning since the day of its inception.

Entering into the eighth year of its commencement on July 2nd ’19 let’s know about 8 things that brought a huge transformation in Udaipur:

  • Mall Culture: Forum Celebration Mall is the first mall which claims of developing the true mall culture in Udaipur. It was only till 2011-12 when most locals were completely new to mall culture having big shopping brands, and international food joints like McDonald’s and Dominos for the first time; entertainment section and many other recreational activities to cherish upon on weekends. Most people admit that they experienced stair escalators for the first time in Celebration Mall back then. Thus a pioneer in building the so-called “big city” culture in Lakecity.

  • Shopping Destination: From apparels to accessories, Forum celebration Mall provides a one-stop solution to shopaholics. It is the one that redefined the shopping culture transforming it from street bargain hunting to window shopping culture. In fact, it is the hub of big brands including Clarks, Louis Philippe, Adidas, Woodlands are just to name a few. This mall not only offers a wide shopping experience but also a private excursion tour to domestic visitors. This is one of the reasons it is counted among the best places to visit in Udaipur.

  • Community Building at Forum Celebration Mall: Unlike shopping culture which every other shopping mall in Udaipur offer, Forum Celebration Mall is a prominent place for social cause and other cultural activities. It not only provide reasons for people to unite and cherish but at the same time makes them aware of recent activities and things going on around the globe. An event like Junior Master Chef, Just Dance Competition, the Forum Purple Run (a marathon for awareness regarding Alzheimer’s) is some of the exemplary events that bring people of Udaipur together for a social cause.

Social Events at Forum Celebration Mall Udaipur

  • Recreational Activities: Before the spread of mall culture which is believed to come from metropolises, there were only a few places within the town where families could gather for fun and leisure. However, with the advent of Forum’s mall, it became the hotspot for foodies, youngsters, families and also tourists. The Gaming zone, Hungama 7D, the external kids play zone, spa nation, the fish spa, and the rides offers far more recreational assortments than ever before.


  • Movies and Entertainment Hub: Apart from shopping, leisure and entertainment are what people look for while entering a mall or an amusement park. Likewise, the Forum Celebration Mall offers an extensive range of entertainment options which captures the interest of all age groups. The successful establishment of PVR is one of the milestones which management must count for. The PVR cinema is recognized to be the first successfully running multiplex within the town.


  • Atrium: Forum Celebration Mall has the biggest atrium in terms of areas all over Rajasthan. The central entrance with huge overhead dome provides a ceremonial view to the visitors. The biggest advantage that it enjoys is the huge atrium which provides ample space for car shows and other auto workshops.

People from all classes and interest hit this place most prominently. Existence of big bazar also engrossed crowds from ration shops to mall shopping.

Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form of haemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anemia.

The Raven Charitable Trust is a foundation which is working with Thalassemic babies past 2 years. This year too, the foundation will be celebrating it with the kids suffering from this dreadful disese. These kids cannot survive if they are not transfused with blood every 20-25 days and because of so much transfusion their kidneys, liver and heart get affected and they ultimately die by the age of 13-14 years unless they are properly taken care of.

On this day the foundation is conducting a blood donation camp at Lake city hospital, Fatehpura, Udaipur from 9 AM to 1 PM with the help of Saral Blood bank and then is organizing a picnic for these small children by the Courtesy of Lal Bagh, Sardarpura from 2-6 PM where we would try to make the kids forget their pain and just enjoy.

ETNCC-2011: Closing Ceremony of the Intellectuals’ Meet

The 3 day international conference on the Emerging Trends in Networks and Computer Communications (ETNCC-2011) was concluded on 24th April 2011 in the Department of Computer Science, CTAE campus.

The Technical sessions were held on schedule from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. where the invited speaker Dr. Sunil Joshi from MPUAT, Udaipur discussed about the future research issues and challenges in the field of wireless broadband. He said that there is a great gap between the broadband standards of USA, Japan, and the standards of India. In India the speed above 256 Kbps is treated as broadband whereas in USA 100Mbps standard is treated as the broadband. The reason being that we are highly dependent on the wired technologies and networks.

The welcome address was given by Dr. S.S. Rathore where he welcomed all the delegates and praised the spirit of organizing committee for organizing such a great event. Dr. Dharm Singh gave the report and recommendation of the international conference. He told that during the 3 days and 17 technical sessions of the conference, about 517 entries were received, out of which 157 research papers were presented, and about 135 papers were accepted and sent to the IEEE digital library.

Er. Rakesh Sehgal, the director of department of Cyber Security from CDAC, Mohali expressed his kind gratitude and presented a few words of appreciation for the ETNCC. Er. R.S. Vyas expressed his dream of establishing Udaipur as the leading quality education hub. He said that the IEEE-CS students’ chapter was inaugurated in Techno India NJR on 22nd April at Udaipur, with registration of 80+ members. He re-declared his commitment to keep running more such programs and events in the near future.

Dr. R.C. Purohit welcomed all the delegates and participants. He said that taking MPUAT to the international scenario was not at all possible without the eminent guidance of Dr. Chahal.

Mr. Sanjay Singhal presented his views about the role of engineers as the key element in every society. He said that people have huge misconceptions about risks from any cause. Only an engineer is taught to and knows about all risks in his sphere of works. It is thus, an engineer’s duty to engage himself in analyzing the risks and conveying it to the society. He also said that the media is an important platform, and must not put all sort of nonsense to misguide people.

Prof. Sorel Reisman appreciated the conference, saying that the selection of more than 100 papers for the IEEE library shows that quality of the papers presented here were unquestionable. He said that India is a leading software producer in the world, and will soon come up as a leading technology exporter in the world. He was greatly impressed by the rich culture of Udaipur, the traditional food, visit to lakes and the Ranakpur temple. He said that this is not the end. Soon he will be holding online webinars with IEEE Udaipur students in the coming times.

Dr. S.S. Chahal said that computers in all forms have become an indispensable part of life. He also said that 70-75% of the population in India comes from villages. Therefore the modern technologies must also penetrate to the rural masses. Vote of thanks was given by Dr. Y.C. Bhatt.

Few glimpses of such a great brainstorming event are given below.

Parties and celebrations were at their extreme. With many mixed feelings and memories of 2010, Udaipur welcomed 2011 with a great vigour. Also, the Year 2011 began with great news to rejoice. Rajasthan won the national level kick- boxing tournament held in Udaipur. Almost all of the Udaipur was excited to host a series of events to be held in the next few weeks of global repute.

  • It began with the hosting of the International Kites Festival 2011, in the first week of January.It was a three day festival which was held at the Maharana Bhupal Stadium (Gandhi Ground) from 5th to 7th Jan 2011. Every eye was on the sky, which was full with vivid colours and cultures from as many as 10 countries across the world, in Udaipur.

  • In the next few days after its completion, the entire Udaipur was engaged into the preparation for the 16th National Youth Festival 2011. Every roads, every nook and corner of the city was shining like a newly built palace.

  • Finally the day came. 12th of January and the entire India came into life at the opening ceremony of the 16th National Youth Festival in the Gandhi ground.There were many cultural events, competitions, evening shows, heart throbbing stunts by the Army, and lots more.There was a spectacular performance by the Indian Air Force and the Indian Army on the closing ceremony.

  • A remarkable news that can never be forgotten here is the struggle between life and death by Narayan Tomar, a worker at the Devas Tunnel Project who was struck at his workplace for many days. Every Udaipie prayed for him, and finally every prayer was heard. Narayan was successfully taken out of the tunnel by several hours of continuous rescue operation.
  • The Mohan Kumar Mangalam football tournament 2011 was held at Zawar Mines this year from 23rd to 31st January. This is a National Level football championship, held every year. Team Dehradun won over the Mumbai team in the finals after a very interesting match, and was the champion for the MKM 2011

  • Udaipur also hosted the Inter-University boxing championship, in both men’s and women’s categories.
  • We all remembered Ganhiji, his principles and all the sacrifices by freedom fighters, and despite of the cable TVs’ or the DTH installed in our homes, all switched on to the DoorDarshan on the 26th Jan, our 62nd Republic day, with a patriotic feeling in our minds, and to salute the Great Indian Flag. A huge crowd too gathered at the Gandhi ground, where the Flag was hoisted by renowned dignitaries.

This was beginning of 2011 only. For more Photographs on the above news, do visit our Facebook  fanpage. And there are lot more stuffs yet to enter Udaipur and our lives as well.
