The tourist city of Rajasthan which has been waiting for the upcoming vacation season, Udaipur has entered the complete lockdown state closing all the major tourist spots in the city including City Palace and Saheliyon Ki Bari.

The directive has come from the city administration as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus.

The Shrinathji Temple of Nathdwara will also be closed immediately after the regular traditional prayers. The temple will only allow 50 people at a time to visit during the traditional prayers.

The existing situation has also hit the event industry which is a part of the tourism sector. Most of the events in the city have either postponed indefinitely or cancelled due to the prevailing situation.

The state tourism department has cancelled celebrations of all festivals till March 31 including Rajasthan Foundation Day and Mewar Festival in the city. Since the administration has urged people to avoid large gathering, all these and other events have been cancelled.

Udaipur Speaks

How Udaipur Lantern Festival became Super hit without traditional promotion?

Udaipur had witnessed many annual public events held in past and even till now; most of these events are organized by either local government and administrative authorities or the dominating print media.

It seems next to impossible to organize any event in Udaipur without the help of Print Media or some handful of non-profit organizations. But the Udaipur Lantern Festival 2015 has smacked down all these contemplations by pulling more than 3500 people just by promoting the event online.

No Pre Event News in any Newspapers, No Pasting Posters on city walls, No Pamphlets, No FM announcement even no banner advertisement, just a pure online publicity and the result was overwhelming, the crowd enjoyed to fullest, the sponsors were more than happy and what next? People are just waiting for next ULF 2016.

How they did it? Who are people behind ULF? Are they event Management Company? – NO.

The ULF is every year organized by a group of youth mostly students under the banner of a local blog which publishes city centric articles, local social issues, news and fantastic photos on their facebook page. There is nothing more than this to answer Who are Behind ULF?

But on the other side, there are few points which I would like to explain on How ULF 2015 Became Successful (without any traditional promotion)

Before moving further, let me clear that I am not an employee of, nor I’ve been paid to write this piece. What made me interested in writing this is just a dedication and extra ordinary management skills of UB team which left not only me but many people completely impressed. It also successfully raised the eyebrows of traditionalist who underestimated the power of social media.


Idea of “The Sky Lantern”

Udaipur Lantern Festival - Amos Chapple

Everything new is always attractive and Sky Lanterns did the same, ULF is perhaps the first event which has full fledgedly promoted Sky Lanterns in Udaipur as a best alternative to fire crackers on Diwali this also gave a social message of being environment friendly and less hazardous way to celebrate the festival.

Organizers are Youth

Team UdaipurBlog

Trend setters are always been followed and youth are the biggest trend setters, most active and responsive than any age group. ULF has benefit of a team of youth as organizers who have their own friend circles combining to become a big cluster of Army of Youth – energetic, enthusiastic and fun loving.

Additional value of Music, Dance, Food, Selfie

Unlike from previous years when ULF event used to be held at Fatehsagar, a public place with limited resources, this time the venue was a private property, loaded with all facilities and amenities to make everything well organized, safe and entertained. Moreover, apart from just lighting a sky lantern, audience has many options to amuse them through live music and dance, food stalls and even a place specially designed to take selfies.

And the most important part of the entertainment was, inviting some of the biggest youth icons and most popular people of city like Priyansh Paliwal, Sumit Lekhari, Dj Lovenish and RJ Himanshu which added priceless pearls on the crown of ULF-2015.


Choice of Promoters

Promotors of ULF2015

ULF successfully convinced all major online brands and youth groups to be the promoters; in return they got free branding at venue and exclusive access to the coverage. Brands like, InstaUdaipur,, AIESEC, BeautifulJaipur, JaipurCityBlog, Action Udaipur etc who effectively promoted ULF on their platforms and helped in pre event promotions.


Sponsors were youth centric

Sponsors ULF2015

To manage the large crowd is easier than entertaining a large crowd. Such arrangements should be done carefully and efficiently and it requires funding. ULF didn’t fall for funding but chose to approach selective brands that can get value for their money. Some of the sponsors of the event were WittyFeed a website publishing viral content, KPlanners and Believe Happenings are event management companies run by young entrepreneurs, Rnold Gym, UBER Cab and Rosava – Packaged Drinking Water are other brands who backed the event.


Planning and Coordination – Key to Success

By the team of volunteers, promoters, partners and fans of previous year’s ULF. The team promoted the event online 12 days prior with lots of positivity. The promotion encouraged curiosity among those who didn’t heard about Lantern Festival or never attended those which held in previous years.

Everyone is now online so the next challenge was spreading the reach and touching most of the online local crowd. Here UdaipurBlog’s page which has more than 150 thousand LIKES helped, those who are left was covered through news site which has another 150 thousand monthly readers. Beside this individual post of ULF on personal walls touched many more thousands.

The combination of every point mentioned above including the perfect timing and date of the event turned it one of the most liked, most successful, youth centric and completely online powered event with effective use of social media.

SPARSH – A Touch of Love


A gray old woman sits all alone
Unloved, uncherished and unknown.
Sitting beside her broken door.
Dreaming of days past long ago,
When children played about her knee
Filling the air with childish glee,
Tended by her with loving care.
Knowing the blessing of a Mother’s prayer.
But now they have gone, each to his life
A girl to her husband, a boy to his wife,
Forgetful are they of her who sits here
Silently wiping a tricking tear,
For striving for things in a life so brief
Blind their poor eyes to a dear Mother’s grief.
But does she upbraid them in word or in mind.
Nor does their neglect to her seem unkind.
She’ll forgive and forget all unkindness they’ve shown
This poor old mother who sits alone.

-Ruby Latimer Edwards
