Chitaurgarh (Urdu: چِتوڑگڑھ‎), (Hindi: चित्तौड़गढ़) pronunciation (help·info)} (also Chittor, Chittaur, or Chitorgarh) is a city and a municipality in Rajasthan state of western India. It lies on the Berach River, a tributary of the Banas, and is the administrative headquarters of Chittorgharh District and a former capital of the Sisodia clans of Rajputs of Mewar. The city of Chittaurgarh is located on the banks of river Gambhiri and Berach. The district was bifurcated and a new district namely Pratap Garh was created with certain portion taken from Udaipur district in the newly created district of Pratap Garh.

Fiercely independent, the fort of Chittor was under siege thrice and each time they fought bravely and thrice Jauhar was committed by the ladies and children, first led by Rani Padmini, and later by Rani Karnavati. The famous warriors Gora and Badal, in the war against Allaudin Khalji (1303 AD), have become legendary. The sacrifice of Jaimal and Phata in the war against the Mughals (1568 AD) was so great that the Mughal Emperor Akbar installed their statues in the fort of Agra. It has also been land of worship for Meera, the legendary queen disciple of lord Krishna. Chittorgarh is home to the Chittorgarh Fort, the largest fort in Asia.

I loved going around capturing the lifes and times of Chittor.

Flash Mob Phenomenon – Interestingly engaging and enlivening surprising places

I always enjoyed dancing and usually jig into an impromptu one with our daughter, Mallika, to her embarrassment some times in a busy square, auditorium or school. Music and dance can create an amazing environment that can enliven any soul. Interesting to see the chemistry within human beings change in a few seconds!

As I was doing a little bit of youtubing to figure out where and how FLASH MOB phenomenon originated, I stumbled across quite a few interesting applications. This has been a few year old phenomenon. Many times, Indian music scores were the instigators or perpetrators! I just thought of sharing.

Of course, the 26/11 soothing the city event at the Mumbai CST was covered very widely in India –

World-wide the applications of this has been immense.

Very interesting to see, introduction to anthropology classes by the professor starts with a planned choreography taking 500 students by surprise, in a University of Australia.  I thought, my kind of facilitator here. I dare more faculty to do so.

Excited to watch an interlude by students in a social studies class in the US. Thanks to the spirit of the faculty, it went of so well. Can we all as facilitators take such a welcome interludes!

The faculty and staff of this university go a step further to surprise students and parents during a Basketball game

A great way to sensitize the diversity of students on the campus of Oregon state univ by faculty and staff –

And it goes to the extent of holding the city centre for a spectacle at a traffic signal in TORONTO – Mojja hi Mojja

Perhaps one of the earliest and very interesting one at Antwerp Railway station – Do Re mei

I am sure you will find many many more. Happy dancing!!
