Places to see in Ajmer

Taragarh



Taragarhor the 'Star Fort' is situated three kilometers and a steep 1 and a half hour climb beyond the Adhai-Din-Ka-Jhonpra Mosque. As it is situated on a height, it commands a spectacular view over the city. It was built by Ajaipal Chauhan, the town's founder. The fort was the site of much military activities during Mughal times and was later used as a sanatorium by the British.




Dargah Sharif

Situated at the foot of a hill and in the old part of town, this is one of the most important places in india for muslim pilgrims. The Dargah is the tomb of a Suffi saint, Khwaja Muin-ud-din Chishti, who came to Ajmer from Persia in 1192 and died here in 1236. Construction of this shrine was completed by Humayun and the gate was added by the Nizam of Hyderabad. Akhbar used to make the pilgrimage to the Dargah from Agra once a year. 


As you enter the courtyard, the mosque, constructed by Akhbar, is on the right. The enormous cauldrons are for offerings that are customarily shared by families involved in the shrine's upkeep. In the inner court there is another mosque built by Shah Jahan. Constructed of white marble, it has 11 arches and a Persian inscription running the full length of the building. The saint's tomb is in the center of the second court. It has a marble dome and actual tomb inside is surrounded by a silver platform. The horse shoes nail to the shrine doors are offerings from successful horse dealers. This shrine is a hive of activity and you can really get a sense of how deeply significant it is to the Muslim people. The tomb attracts tens of thousands of pilgrims every year on the anniversary of the Saint's death 

Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra

Beyond the Dargah, on the outskirts of town, are the ruins of Adhai-Din-Ka-Jhonpra mosque. According to legend its construction, in 1153, took just 2 and a 1/2 days. (Adhai-Din-Ka-Jhonpra means '2 and a 1/2 day building'). Others believe it was named after a festival that lasted for 2 and a 1/2 days . It was originally built as a Sanskrit college , but in 1198 Mohammed of Ghori took Ajmer and converted the building into a mosque by adding a seven-arched wall covered with Islamic calligraphy in front of the pillared hall.

Pushkar Lake

This lake is situated at the edge of the desert and surrounded by the hills from three sides. This lake get apart from Ajmer by the snake mountain range called locally as ' Nag Parvat'.

According to the legend Pushkar was originated when lord Bhramha was looking for a peaceful place for 'Yagya'. It is said that a Lotus flower slipped from his hand and fell down on this hill, where the Pushkar Lake derived. Therefore the Bhramha temple situated here, is a famous pilgrimage for Hindus.

On this mountain, the Panchkund and the cave of the saint Agastya are located.

Cricket World Cup 2011 Schedule

ICC World Cup 2011


Cricket Schedule of ICC World Cup 2011. Fixtures of ICC World Cup 2011 has been announced. The first schedule match of ICC World Cup 2011 between India vs Bangladesh begins Feb 19, 2011 onwards. Keep viewing CriSchedule for latest updates on Cricket Schedule and Fixtures of upcoming ICC World Cup 2011.

Good times are here for India. The country will get to host the tenth world cup of its most loved sport in 2011 along with co-hosts Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. It will be the first time co-hosting for Bangladesh in a cricket world cup. Fourteen national teams are scheduled to compete for the coveted cup between February and early April 2011. According to the announced fixtures of ICC World Cup 2011, the first match will be played among co-hosts India and Sri Lanka at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

The formerly announced time-table of 2011 world cup also included Pakistan as a co-hosting nation but the 2009 attack on Sri Lankan cricket team at Lahore which left seven players injured, forced the world cup governing body (ICC) to strip off Pakistan of its co-hosting rights on Apr 17, 2009. India will now host 29 of the total 49 planned matches including the all important grand final at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai and one semi-final as well. Sri Lanka will host 12 matches while the first time nation Bangladesh has been given the opportunity to host the tournament opener along with eight other matches. Since India has been allotted the highest number of matches, the ICC has moved its headquarters to Mumbai to ensure smooth and timely preparations for the event. Mr. Ratnakar Shetty has been appointed as the managing director of the event, while the security directorate will be headed by Mr. Shashank Manohar of BCCI.

The allocation of world cup venues is always a much sought after event with major cricketing nations bidding for hosting rights. To avoid favoritism, the ICC prefers to rotate venues between major cricket playing nations. In the bidding for the 2011 event, Australia/New Zealand had an upper hand over the trio of India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh as they had not had a chance to host the World cup since 1992. But Indias argument that the trio being a bigger group of countries helped clinch the final deal. The 2015 cricket world cup will be held in Australia/New Zealand.

Cricket world cup organized every four years is the fourth largest and one of the most eagerly awaited and viewed event of the cricket world. It is widely considered to be the pinnacle of achievement in this sport. The excitement among fans is already palpable as the first phase of tickets was put for sale in Mumbai on 1 June 2010. Priced affordably at around 20 US cents, the organizing committee is expecting to reap in bumper sales and not diminish the euphoria of fans. The new revised format of the world cup wherein 14 teams instead of 16 will be participating also ensures that fans get to see their favorite teams play a minimum of six matches even if they are ruled out of the tournament due to early defeats.

Cricket fan or not- there is no way you can escape the all-engulfing madness. From cricket merchandise at stores to travel packages to host nations and restaurants and cafes serving cricket-themed food, the fever is all over. Personal relationships too are not unaffected by the craze. While the love for cricket unites some, it also spells doom for many relationships. There is simply no running away, so prepare to drown yourself in the drone of cricket slogans in the year to come!

Delhi-- A Site Of Women harassment????

Now a days Harassment  has become a common thing among people living in Delhi,the worst part is parents are in fact afraid of sending their daughters sending them out even in day light.. 

The Crime in India manual for 2005 compiled by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has reinforced Delhi’s image as a metro unsafe for women. The Capital has the highest rate of crime against women, 27.6 per lakh population, which is twice the national average of 14.2. The Capital also fares the worst in a comparison of rates of crimes against women in 35 mega cities in the country (those with population of 10 lakh and above). A whopping one-third of rape cases takes place in Delhi alone — 562 cases out of a total of 1,693.
As far as kidnapping and abductions of women are concerned, 900 cases out of a total of 2,409, about 37.4 per cent occurs in the Capital alone.
None of the other 35 cities came anywhere close to Delhi regarding molestation cases . While Delhi reported 654 incidents, Mumbai, the next on the list, recorded 385 cases.
As far as dowry deaths are concerned the picture is bleaker. Delhi accounted for 94 of the 492, about 19 per cent, the highest for any metro city. It is only when considering sexual harassment, that Delhi with 197 cases, comes second any city — Kanpur (227 cases).
Said National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) Director, S Awasthi, “While the overall crime rate across the country has gone down, from 168.8 in 2004 to 165.3 in 2005, as far as crime against women is concerned, there has been no such trend. Delhi seems to show an alarming trend of recording one-third of the rape cases across all mega- cities in the country.”
Asked if the high figures could have been due to greater alertness on the part of authorities, he said the prevalence of crimes against women in a certain place depends on a large extent to the social ambience of that place.


The picture is no better when considering crime against children. Delhi has the highest crime rate of 6.5 in contrast to a national average of 1.4. For kidnapping and abduction of children below 15 years of age, Delhi reported the highest figures in the country, 18.9 per cent.
The trend is also reflected in the overall crime rates of the capital. While the all-India average of IPC crimes is 165.3, Delhi recorded a figure of 356.1.
Additional Commissioner of Police Deependra Pathak, the official spokesperson of the Delhi Police, dismissed suggestions that these figures reflect the inability of the force to protect women in the city.
“It is a much more complex role of crime and society that comes into play. We have made an all-out effort and even roped in NGOs in creating awareness about these crimes, so that even the most minor cases get reported. Statistics do not reveal the whole picture,” he claimed.

Angel Falls, Venezuela

Angel Falls (Spanish: Salto Ángel; Pemon language: Kerepakupai vena, meaning "waterfall of the deepest place", or Parakupa-vena, meaning "the fall from the highest point") is a waterfall in Venezuela.


It is the world's highest waterfall, with a height of 979 m (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft). The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyantepui mountain in the Canaima National Park , a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Gran Sabana region of Bolívar State, Venezuela.


The height of the fall is so great that, before getting anywhere near the ground, much of the water is evaporated or carried away as a fine mist by the strong wind. The base of the falls feeds into the Kerep River (alternatively known as the Río Gauya), which flows into the Churun River, a tributary of the Carrao River.

The height figure 979 m (3,212 ft) mostly consists of the main plunge but also includes about 400 m (0.25 mi) of sloped cascades and rapids below the drop and a 30 m (98 ft) high plunge downstream of the talus rapids. While the main plunge is undoubtedly the highest single drop in the world.

Addiction --Social Networking


When I was working in my office trying to complete the task assigned to be II found a colleague  of mine busy checking his Face book & Orkut account. And when I reached him, he asked whether I have  Face book  account, and I told him and “YES”.. Later the added me... but soon after I found him that he was always on this social networking.. When I asked him why he was always in it… His Response was “Dude I dunno It’s just that I’m Addicted to it”
So what Makes Facebook and Orkut SO addicting

1. Making Friends

Well some people believe that the meet someone “SPECIAL” on orkut or facebook and fall in love..blaba..  I people are real crazy because I has seen many of the relationship going apart even after a 25 years of Marriage and these people here are LOOKING For some SERIOUS RELATION.. that is real Funny, to add more flavor  some surveys say that 75% people using Social Networking sites got married to their “CHAT FRIEND”.. dunno How long they are going to LAST ,but I believe Social Networking is for people who have a lot of friends who could stay closer.. so to be update with friends can use it.
2. Games

Facebook  I guess with its Handful of Game Applications had eat a head of Orkut.. So now even Orkut had started its own gaming application making people more addicted to their sites. The Funniest part here is My Friend who calls me up 4 in morning to get his Farmville to harvest his Farm.
