The ‘festival of colour’ – Holi is just around the corner. The festival brings with it bright colours, amazing sweets, large gatherings along with dancing and celebrations. However, playing with Holi colours can also a take a toll on your hair, skin and face.

Fret not! Here are some of our Holi Hair and Skin Care tips to get you through the festival.

Pre-Holi Care

Body Oiling

1. Oiling your body is an essential pre-Holi care. It will help form a layer on top of your skin and keep the harsh colours from affecting your skin.

Sunsceen

2. Sun care is essential during Holi as you’ll be playing with colour in the hot sun. SPF 50+ sunscreen should be applied on all exposed areas.

Apply Dark Nail Paint

3. Apply dark nail paint, Holi colours don’t penetrate the nail bed. You can also massage Vaseline into your nail cuticles.

Wear Long-Sleeved Clothes

4. Try to cover up as much as possible. Wear long sleeved tops and pants.

Apply Coconut Oil to Hair

5. Massage coconut hair oil from root to tip and braid it. Give yourself a 5 mins scalp massage as well. You can mix olive oil to coconut oil for added protection.

After Holi

Ubtan

1. Ubtan is a great way to lessen the damage to your skin and restore life back to your skin. Create a mixture of turmeric, sandalwood and rosewater and apply liberally on skin. Another recipe is curd + sandalwood + a pinch of turmeric.

2. Soak cotton in olive oil and rub on areas stained with Holi colours.

Use a Gentle Shampoo while washing hair

3. Use a gentle or mild shampoo when washing your hair. You can shampoo 2-3 times to get rid of colours stuck in the roots of your hair. You can also make a hair mask out of 4 tbsp of curd and fenugreek seeds and apply it on your scalp for 30 mins and wash off.

Apply lemon juice on scalp after shower

4. After the Hairwash you can apply lemon juice to the scalp for restoring its acid-alkaline balance.

5. Apply hair oil once again after your hair dries. This will keep your hair moisturised and nourished. e

As many as 70 riders from 14 different nations from across the globe gathered together to share their common love and passion of horse riding. The third edition of a one of its kind event – ‘Gallops’ – was held for the first time in India from 2 to 9 March. The endurance ride, which began from the Shekhawati town of Mandawa, witnessed the participation of professional as well as amateur riders across ages and backgrounds – the cavalry members of India and Oman, Former Miss France as well as the 93 year old French man Philippe Perrier.

Sharing her experience of riding through the small towns of Shekhawati, Former Miss France Camille Cerf said that it is a fascinating and colourful experience to ride in the living desert of Rajasthan. The terrain is diverse and one gets to witness a variety of fauna on the way. Meeting the people of rural areas is also an enriching element to the whole ride.

An important feature of the Gallops of India is the promotion of the Marwari Horses – the indigenous breed of Rajasthan. Telling more about these horses, co-organizer of the event, Mr. Angad Deo Mandawa said that Marwari horses are hot blooded and are known for their aggression and speed. Therefore, they are ideal for this exemplary competitive endurance ride. 

Further elaborating on the passion for horses, the oldest rider of the lot – the 93 year old Philippe Perrier from France said that the experience of participating in the Gallops of India is quite different from the earlier editions of Oman and Morocco. The prime reason for this are the Marwari horses. These horses are more intelligent than any other breed in the world, added Perrier. He also emphasized on the need for treating horses with utmost care and love and not think of them as a mere medium of transport.

It is noteworthy that the participants have been riding for 6 hours per day covering a distance of 40 kms. In between they halt for a 30 minute lunch break and at night they stay in camps where folk music and dance is organized.  The over 200 km ride  began from Mandawa and covered Alsisar, Mahendar, Bika Ki Dhani and Fatehpur and concluded at Mandawa.

Suraj Narayan Titanwala, an Everyman ‘Chhipa’ Printer from Bagru dreamt a big dream.

The dream of establishing a one-of-a-kind Textile Museum that would curate his unique collection of vintage blocks, heritage textiles and ancient vessels used in the traditional process of Hand Block Printing with natural dyes and colors.

This dream was realized on 25 February 2019 when Union Textiles Minister, Ms. Smriti Z Irani inaugurated the museum and it officially opened for the public.

The Titanwala Museum

Block printing made its international fashion debut in the West by marking its presence in the fashion bible, Vogue (UK) in 1971 and soon became a sensation around the world.

Heritage Textiles hand printed by the Titanwala Family

This time and labor-intensive style of printing continues to be practiced by very few families today. The Titanwalas are one such family where age-old techniques are handed down from generation to generation. Presently, the father (Suraj Narayan Titanwala) and son (Deepak Titanwala) actively devote every waking hour to the practice.

Until the late 20th century, block printers sold their creations at a weekly market, called a ‘Hathwada’. Their creations were spotted by Hiroko Iwatate from Japan who was charmed by the fine workmanship and introduced them to buyers like Faith Singh of ‘Anokhi’ who continues to buy from them till this day.

Over the years, the Titanwala Bhawan has attracted international collectors, designers, retailers and enthusiasts like Prince Charles. Many designers such as Hiroko Iwatate, Yumi Masumoto Gaya, Faith Singh of ‘Anokhi’ and Behroze Singh of ‘Cottons’ have also collaborated with the duo.

Prince Charles at Titanwala Bhawan

What sets the museum apart is the actual process of preparing the dyes, the act of dyeing, printing, washing and drying all on display as the Titanwalas go about their work.

Customized Peacock Block for Printing

They also offer workshops where one can get a guided tour of the space and its activities, followed by a hands-on experience of the same. One can also buy signature Bagru prints from them.

Suraj Narayan Titanwala showing the Textiles Minister the museum

On the occasion of the launch, the Minister commended the efforts made by Suraj Narayan Titanwala and said that this initiative was a shining example of how the preservation of Art & Culture is not dependent on Government aid and support. She emphasized that a sense of community and brotherhood amongst Everyman Indians can help achieve any goal that one sets their mind to.

The museum is open from 9 am – 6 pm, from Monday to Sunday and should be a Must Visit item on everyone’s itinerary during a trip to Jaipur.

Wrapped in legends and myths, the pink city of India is a place where history merges with modernity. Culturally rich, Jaipur is a city where royalty manifests itself in a magnificent way. From historic architectural to astronomical instruments, the city has something on offer for everyone. The city of royals never fails when it comes to mesmerizing the people with its charm. Here are 5 interesting facts about Jaipur that will leave you amazed:

Photo Source

1) Why is it called the Pink city?

Jaipur is known as the Pink City. Ever thought about where it got its name from? Under the rule of Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh, Jaipur was painted pink for the grand welcome of Prince Edward of Wales.

Why Pink? Pink is traditionally the colour associated with hospitality so the city underwent a makeover. The pink colour gave Jaipur a distinctive appearance and the nickname of the Pink City.

2) First planned city of India

History states that Chandigarh is the first-ever planned city in India, but facts prove it wrong. Under the architectural guidance of Vidyadhar Bhattacharya during the reign of Maharaja Jai Singh, Jaipur was planned as per the rules and regulations of the principles of Vastu Shastra and Shilpa Shastra.
