Udaipur ranked in World’s 100 Most Polluted Cities

Our Lakecity has always been in news for its beauty and its lakes. But this time there’s a complete U-turn and it is not at all pleasant to hear for Udaipurites. Udaipur has been named amongst the world’s 100 most polluted cities by IQ AirVisual in its World Air Quality Report 2018.

Udaipur was ranked 94th in this list. The average PM2.5 level in Udaipur is 55.1. The air quality of this level comes under the ‘Unhealthy’ category and is dangerous for sensitive groups. The growing traffic and the regular deforestation happening around the city in the name of development is now turning out to be dangerous.

Unfortunately, 7 out of the top 10 most polluted cities in the World Air Quality Index Report are in India. Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai were the toppers from India and this is not something we Indians should be proud of.

Don’t you think it’s high time for us as Udaipurites to rise as One and take some important steps to improve the air conditions around us and make our Udaipur proud again?

Sindhupare: A Mixed-Media Art Exhibition starts Today

Sindhupare is a Bengali word that literally means “beside the sea“. The name has been derived from the famous poem Sindhupare by ‘Thakur’ Rabindra Nath Tagore. It is a Mixed-Media Art Exhibition. This Tagore Art Installation Project
 is to be held at Udaipur, Jodhpur, Kolkata, Jaipur, and Mumbai. The Udaipur based theatre company ‘Out of Cocoon’ is opening this mixed-media art exhibition under the creative direction of Jarka Heller (UK) and Anne Visboel (Denmark). The event is supported by West Zone Cultural Centre (WZCC), as part of the Indian Government’s Tagore Commemoration Grant Scheme (TCGS). The Inaugural event is to be held at Sculpture Korte, 125-A Ambamata Scheme, opp. Aurvedic College, Udaipur today, and the free event will run from 5 – 13 February 2012, daily at 6-9 p.m.


The Tagore poem ‘Sindhupare’ (Beside the Sea) is used as the inspiration for artistic creations from international sculptors, artists, actors and composers. Their creative works have been integrated into a ‘life journey’ following the path of the poem. Visitors will be introduced to Sindhupare through exhibits that touch all five human senses, allowing them to experience the depth and beauty of this profound example of Tagore’s work.

Therefore, the art lovers and Tagore fans should not miss this opportunity to visit the exhibition.
