I am a Marwari and Fatehpur in Rajasthan is my native place. I grew up listening to stories about Rajasthan and about how women are very rural and domestic in that region. I have always lived in Mumbai and it was hard for me to imagine the extreme sense of domestication where women only cook and take care of children. This gave me a curious spark to travel to Jaipur and see for myself. But it is not the stereotypical image of Rajasthan at all, it is a very colourful and vibrant with a lot of nightlife. I took the bus from Delhi which can be booked at redbus.com and it was an AC Volvo. I expected to find sand dunes and desert on the way, but all I saw was grass filled mountains.
We always hear haunted stories and reject them or laugh about it but how many of us would actually have the courage to visit a haunted site? Bhangarh Fort is said to be Asia's most haunted place and various movies and Horror TV shows have been shot here. Even if you aren't a horror spook, this place has a lot of greenery and mountains in the background and it is definitely worth a visit.
