I am really grateful to live in a city which has a huge history in it. That’s right, I’m talking about Indore. Indore is basically known for the Commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh. The city is generally popular for its history, people and their language, the kindness in helping each other, to gather a dozen of people to drop a single person station, and of course for its Poha Jalebi😜😋
Indore was also the capital of the Holkars.
Have you heard about that movie called, Bajirao Mastani? We do have some connection with Peshwai. Nandlal Chaudhary was the founder of the city, and named the city as Indrapur. During the Maratha regime it became Indur and later Indore.
Rangpanchmi(it’s a festival of colours only played in Indore. Have you heard about that festival called Tomatina, which is played in Spain, I guess?) And AhilyaUtsav are the prime festivals of Indore.
PS- BTW I do have written that post of Rangpanchmi I’ve enjoyed this March. If you want to read more please let me know I’ll post it here. 🙂
Thankfully, today is the AhilyaUtsav itself. And let me tell you how did I come to know about it. It’s was a sunny day and I was searching for the tickets and suddenly I found this interesting news in my feed, what are the most important festivals of Indore. And I read everything and felt good. Later on, when I reached at shop I came to know that something is happening outside.
Since, we’re living right in the centre of the city so we have that privilege to enjoy everything. ;)😂
Our shop, house, prime locations are usually covered in approximately 5-8 kms. So it’s always fun to be updated. 😉
When I went outside the shop, I was on top of the world to know that everything is so perfect. There are bandbaje wale, dholak, Nagade, taase, and dhol.
For a second I felt like, I’ve come into another world of fantasies where everything is so fine. A city of Raja Rajwada.
PS – We do have a place called Rajwada where all the king and queens used to stay. 😀
So yasssssssssss! My brother and I was outside all the evening. We enjoyed a lot and I did some commentaries too. As you guys know, how great I feel in speaking front of people. 🙂
My dream to become a LEADER. 💕:)
I impressed an old man by my words and he gave me his mic to speak. Oh my God! I can’t express how exciting it is to speak in front of the open bazaar where probably everyone is seeing you, taking pictures of you, there’s media person in front of you. Oh my God! I actually spoke my heart out and welcomed everyone. Woohooooooo!!! That was the fun part. ❤💕
It was 221 death anniversary of Ahilya Bai Holkar, the brave queen of Indore. She really had brought a lot of changes in Indore and for that people respect her a lot here.
There were horses, and men, women, and children riding on them and roaming around the city with traditional clothes. 🙂
Akhada is very famous thing in Indore. You’ll be able to relate if you’ve seen a recent picture of Salman Khan, Sultan. So people join such Akhadas from the very little age(I’m one of them, hence I’ve got a physic like a Bruce Lee, I guess!!😂) and who also spins bhalas. Basically a rod of steel with Ghoongroo like balls at both the edges.
I’ve taken a lot of pictures and videos for you guys to actually feel what I felt. I really want to have a look at them and tell me how do you like it. :D:D
These are few videos I’ve shared on SumitOfficial’s Facebook page. Please have a look by clicking on it. 😀
