Quote:
The Rajasthan government today decided to notify four more conservation reserves and extending areas of tiger reserves in Ranthambore and Sariska.

Mokhla (Jaisalmer), Jeen Mata forest area (Sikar), Mansa Mata forest area (Jhunjhunu) and Grass Farm nursery (Jaipur) will be made conservation reserve in order to conserve species of wildlife there, an official spokesperson said here.

The decisions were taken in a standing committee meeting of the state Wildlife Board in which a proposal for introducing tiger safari in Olavari-Niwari forest area in Ranthambore and in Nahargarh Biological Park (Jaipur) was also passed.

The committee also decided to extend the areas of Ranthambore and Sariska to protect the depleting wild cat population and to shift bears in Sariska from other parts, the spokesperson said.

Interpretation centre of Jantar Mantar to be inaugurated today

Quote:
JAIPUR: The much awaited interpretation centre at Jantar Mantar will finally be inaugurated on Monday. Set at the rear end of Jantar Mantar, in an area of about 300 sq feet, the interpretation centre has a display of brass instruments and miniature models of the masonry instruments of Jantar Mantar - with panels of other information. However, what seems to be missing is the display of Unesco certificate of World Heritage Monument.

The centre has provision to seat approximately 20 people to watch an audio-visual film. This is specially made on the working principles of the instruments and the historical events that were decisive in the making of Jantar Mantar - besides similar ones at Delhi, Mathura, Varanasi and Ujjain.

For now the audio-visual film would be in English which is to be followed by other languages soon.

Centre for Flamenco and Rajasthani Music studies in Jodhpur

Quote:
Report by Santanu Ganguly, New Delhi: "Festival of Flamenco and Rajasthani Music" to be celebrated annually in Jodhpur. Mehrangarh Museum Trust inks MoU with the Fundación Cante de las Minas and the Embassy of Spain in India.To preserve and promote the original richness of the musical traditions, Mehrangarh Museum Trust, the Fundación Cante de las Minas, and the Embassy of Spain in India signed a Memorandum of Understanding tonight at Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur for the creation of a Centre for Flamenco and Rajasthani Music studies. This international centre will be set up at the Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur.

Music and dance has always been a basic part of the intangible cultural heritage. It’s noteworthy that historic relation exists between the folklore of Rajasthan and the Spanish Flamenco; brought to Spain by the gypsy tribes, who were originally from Rajasthan. Considering this, it is essential to promote a better understanding of these relations and preserve the original richness of this musical tradition by setting up an international centre in Jodhpur.

With this purpose of preserving and promoting musical traditions, this centre would be jointly created by His Highness Gaj Singh II Maharaja of Jodhpur and Managing Trustee of the Mehrangarh Museum Trust; His Excellency, Mr. Francisco Bernabe, Mayor of the Union and President of the Fundación del Cante de las Minas; His Excellency, Mr. Gustavo de Arístegui y San Roman, Ambassador of Spain in India and Cav Roberto Nieddu, Director, CRN Productions.

The Mehrangarh Museum Trust, whose objective is to preserve the cultural and artistic heritage of Rajasthan, will provide the facilities where the activities of the centre will be carried out in the city of Jodhpur.
The Fundación Cante de las Minas, through the Las Minas world Wide Tour SL, will support the creation of a "Festival of Flamenco and Rajasthani Music" which will be celebrated annually in Jodhpur and shall be a highlight.

The Embassy of Spain in India will encourage within its programs of cultural cooperation, the exchange and the participation of artists of both countries in the activities of the centre and possible collaboration of Institutions such as Casa Asia and the Fundación Consejo España-India in this project.
His Highness Gaj Singh II Maharaja of Jodhpur and Managing Trustee of the Mehrangarh Museum Trust; His Excellency, Mr. Francisco Bernabe, Mayor of the Union and President of the Fundación del Cante de las Minas; His Excellency, Mr. Gustavo de Arístegui y San Roman, Ambassador of Spain in India and Cav Roberto Nieddu, Director, CRN Productions, Mr Karni Jasol, Director, Mehrangarh Museum Trust etc were present during the signing of MoU.

“Signing of this MoU is an honourable occasion for us. Flamenco’s roots are related to Rajasthan and it is like coming together of two culturally similar music once again. This centre will attract people and through this they will understand the music. Mehrangarh Museum Trust has always promoted cultural programmes and this programme is a new add-on to the existing list of programmes. We look forward for this collaboration and hope to see Jodhpur soon as cultural centre of Rajasthan,” - His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh II, Managing Trustee of the Mehrangarh Museum Trust

“This is for the first time in history that such collaboration is taking place. We have our own roots here and once again we are back to the roots to start it all over again. We are going to set an example with this centre that no matter what, if someone really wishes to understand musical traditions then there are no barriers which exist,”- His Excellency, Mr. Francisco Bernabe, Mayor of the Union and President of the Fundación del Cante de las Minas

“This is a historic moment for all of us. Flamenco is not only for music but rather is an expression depicting emotions, which is linked to our heart directly. This project shall be recognised as a big project in near future. Mehrangarh Museum Trust is, as it is hosting world class events and it’s a pleasure for us to work with them. Once the centre starts, everybody will come to know about the richness of the culture and musical traditions,”- His Excellency, Mr. Gustavo de Arístegui y San Roman, Ambassador of Spain in India

“We are all very excited about this centre as this cultural centre shall not only preserve the musical traditions of Flamenco and Rajasthani Music but shall also promote this musical art form through which the young generation will get a chance to learn and appreciate. Rajasthani Folk musicians, Flamenco performers and people who have always appreciated both the forms and have been interested in either Flamenco or Rajasthani Music will now get a chance to understand and become skilled at it, ’’- Mr Karni Jasol, Director, Mehrangarh Museum Trust

After the signing of MoU, there was an enthralling performance given by group RAÍCES FLAMENCAS. The performers were Maria Canea (Dance), Antonio Mejias (Singing and clapping), Antonio Munoz (Guitar) and Josue Rodriguez (Percussion).This mesmerizing performance was unique in its own way. This was followed by a Rajasthani Music performance given by Langa Group from the land of desert. Abdul Rashid Khan (Vocals), Iklash Khan (Sarangi), Zakir Khan (Khartal), Saddik Khan (Dholak) and Asha Sapera (Kalbeliya Dancer) gave their mesmerizing performance which left the audience enchanted. This was although an evening performance but this undoubtedly gave a basic introduction about both the traditional music and which also made everyone aware about the similarities shared between both the cultures.

2 Secret Tunnels Discovered in jaipur

जयपुर में मिली गुप्*त सुरंग

Quote:
जयपुर। राजस्*थान की राजधानी जयपुर में एक सुरंग मिलने से पूरे शहर में सनसनी फैल गई। हर किसी की जुबान पर इसी सुरंग की कहानियां है। सरगासूली चढऩे वाले रास्ते (त्रिपोलिया बाजार की छत से) के दूसरी ओर नीचे जाने वाले रास्ते को देखकर यहां दौरा करने आए अफसरों ने इसे खुलवाया तो यहां गुप्त सुरंग होने की बात समझ आई।

दरअसल इस रास्ते के छोर पर कबाड़ डाला हुआ था और आज तक इसके नीचे जाने की किसी ने कोशिश नहीं की। राजस्थान हेरिटेज डवलपमेंट एंड मैनेजमेंट अथॉरिटी के चेयरमैन एस. अहमद और उनकी पूरी टीम जब यहां दौरे पर आई तो उन्होंने इसे खोल देखा।


सरगासूली वाले रास्ते की तरह ही नीचे भी घुमावदार रैंप था, जिसे देख सभी ने इसे सिटी पैलेस जाने वाली सुरंग बताया। हेरिटेज और अन्य कुछ जानकारों से बातचीत की तो उन्होंने भी इस संभावना से इनकार नहीं किया।

इसके बाद इस घुप अंधेरे और चमगादड़ों से भरे करीब 20 फीट रास्ते में जाकर पड़ताल की गई तो पता लगा कि करीब एक मंजिल नीचे जाने के बाद रास्ता दीवार बनाकर बंद किया हुआ था।

तुरंत इंजीनियर के जरिए ठेकेदार के आदमी बुलाकर इसे तुड़वाया, लेकिन इसे तोड़ते ही सामने कुछ टाइलें आदि बिखरी मिलीं। इन्हें देख सब चौंक पड़े कि आखिर यह सब कैसे? आखिरकार पता लगा कि यह तो आतिश मार्केट की ओर बनी एक टाइल्स की दुकान है।

सामने आया कि कभी यहां से भी सरगासूली पर जाने का रास्ता था, जिसे कालांतर में बंद कर दिया गया।

राजस्थान हेरिटेज डवलपमेंट एंड मैनेजमेंट अथॉरिटी के चेयरमैन एस. अहमद ने कहा कि सरगासूली के इस रास्ते को कभी खोलकर भीतर तक नहीं पहुंचा गया। घुमावदार रास्ता नीचे की ओर आ रहा था, जिससे लगा कि कोई गुप्त रास्ता होगा, लेकिन पड़ताल में यह दुकान में जाकर निकला है। जो भी हो, हमने काम किया और एक सच तो सामने आ गया। सुबह हालात देख संबंधित दुकान मालिक को नोटिस देकर इस जगह को खाली कराएंगे, क्योंकि रास्ता सरगासूली का है। पता कराएंगे कि कब इसे बंद किया गया और वास्तविकता क्या रही होगी।

Records of Marwar kingdom being digitised, will be put online

Quote:
Treasured historic documents and records related to the royal Marwar kingdom of Rajasthan would now be made available online to researchers.

The digitisation work of nearly 50 lakh documents belonging to erstwhile Marwar kingdom that included present districts of Jodhpur, Nagaur, Pali, Barmer and Jalore is underway, and the digitised documents will be made available online by the state Archive directorate here.

The project, which began a few months back, will completed by January 2015, Dr Mahendra Khangarot, Director- Rajasthan state Archive told PTI.

The documents were with the state archive originally and under an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed last year with the Mehrangarh Museum Trust, run by the erstwhile royal family of Jodhpur, the records are being digitised by a private firm and the expenditure will be borne by the trust.

"They (Trust) outsourced the work of digitisation to a company and we provided the record. Under the MoU, we will get a digital copy by the Trust which we will make available online so that researchers can access them easily.

The original record will remain with the archive, he said, claiming that was first of its kind initiative to digitise records relating to princely kingdom.

The project will not only help researchers access the documents, but also preserve the record for a longer period, Mahendra Singh from Mehrangarh Museum Trust- Jodhpur said.

'Infrastructure development to be given priority in promoting tourism'

The Times of India
Quote:
It seems to be a sunrise moment for the tourism industry in Rajasthan, which despite being a great tourism destination was lacking the requisite infrastructure. Speaking at the inauguration of the 49th FHRAI Annual Convention that is being held from September 12-14, CM Vasundhara Raje said, "Infrastructure development has to be given high priority in promoting tourism. Twenty thousand km road will be developed in Rajasthan in the next five years under the PPP mode." This, she said, will not only give a fillip to tourism but also invite investment in the state.

Rajasthan is synonymous to tourism that can give a big impetus to livelihood. "Monuments have to be 'living' which will add to their longevity and make them attractive for tourists and visitors. The Amber Fort in Jaipur is an example of a living monument and within two years it will be a living monument. The night tourism, dinner events and weddings too will also be promoted so that tourists can enjoy seeing them after sunset. The Tourism Unit Policy of 2007 is being reformulated and will be even more investment friendly. Besides, nine tourism projects costing over Rs 100 cr have already been approved," she said.

Adding to that, the 'Holi Festival' of Deeg would be revived besides conservation and heritage restoration works in Bharatpur and Bikaner. "Tourism has to evolve continuously. What was relevant 10 years ago is passe today. What is relevant today will be passe after 10 years. She announced amidst thunderous applause that the Great Indian Travel Bazaar (GITB), the popular inbound tourism B2B mart, will be returning to Jaipur once again," said Raje.

Keen on partnering Rajasthan in the growth of tourism & hospitality sector Rana Kapoor, MD & CEO, Yes Bank and President, ASSOCHAM said, "Rajasthan is the crown jewel of India's tourism industry with its rich history, heritage and culture - with three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, world famous wildlife reserves and melas, Rajasthan has a lot to offer to every tourist setting foot into the country or from within our country. Rajasthan has beautifully demonstrated the potential of tourism & hospitality for inclusive development, livelihood security and job creation."

Over 700 delegates, including leading hoteliers, restaurateurs, senior central and state government officials, investors, representatives from financial institutions, global consultants, are attending the FHRAI Convention in Jaipur. R.V. Deshpande, minister of tourism, Government of Karnataka was the Guest of Honour.

Second phase of Chandrawati excavation to kick off this week

The Times of India
Quote:
UDAIPUR: Archaeologists and researchers are all set to take off for the second phase of Chandrawati Archaeological Research Project at Abu Road in Sirohi district that is expected to begin this week. The project is a joint venture of Department of Archaeology and Museums and JRN Rajasthan Vidyapeeth, Udaipur. The second phase of exploration will continue till the mid of February. The first season, which culminated in February last year, had unearthed ruins depicting the glory of the 1000-year-old Parmar dynasty.

Chandrawati is a village spread over 150 bigha in Sirohi district. It was the well known capital of the Arbud branch of the Parmar dynasty. The debris of the ancient city is believed to be spread in a circumference of about 32 kilometres including the area of Amirgarh, Maval, Siyava, Santpur, Moongthala and Paldi.

This is state government's first excavation in the last 20 years. The archaeologists had discovered a fort and large number of residential structures during the first phase. Several metals, terracotta and stone objects were unearthed. "We had set off for digging after an intensive ground survey and had got encouraging details to reveal a lot about the ancient town which had been lost in the pages of history, prof Jeevan Kharakwal, director of the research project, said.

"This season we are planning to continue the work we initiated last time in order to understand that culture's phases, which possibly belongs to late historical phase. In addition to this, we plan to got for cutting at a very high mound to understand the nature of deposit," said the excavation in-charge.

Scholars from BSIP Lucknow, Deccan College and other universities will be participating in the excavation. "The settlement has perhaps four fortified enclosures, out of which one is visible on the surface. Another one we discovered last season. There are two more and of these we plan to open the bigger one this season apart from lower levels of the settlement," Kharakwal said.

A station team to prepare a contour map of the site has been hired by the department and the map will be ready by next week. The major objective of the excavation is to understand cultural sequence, expansion and function of the ancient town. Besides, it also aims at understanding contemporary climate, subsistence and varied technologies. As this ancient site is located on the foothill of Mt Abu it may attract large number of tourists and scholars to the site after the project. Members of the team in the second phase include Vineet Godhal, Krishnakanta Sharma, K P Singh, Narayan Paliwal, Rohit Menaria, Hitesh Bunkar, Prakash Dangi, Verma and students of Archaeology of Rajasthan Vidyapeeth.
