No doubt Rajasthan is one of the most diverse and beautiful state of the Incredible India but there are some myths which have been created for Rajasthan and Rajasthanis.
Here we have compiled the top 10 stereotypes we Rajasthanis face:
No Water Only Sand:
People around think that the whole of Rajasthan is nothing but a desert area where there is no water. But this is what they go wrong with – only there are some desert region facing water issues, rest remains water-full.
Being Marwari By Default:
No matter who you actually are – Baniya, Brahmin or some other caste, but you are Marwadi if you are from Rajasthan. Marwari actually is a term used for the people from Marwar regions basically Jodhpur part.
Rajasthan = Villagers + Farmers:
Yes we know Rajasthan is one of the states of India with most of the people involved in farming and also has major part covered with villages. We do know this and feel proud to the same that Rajasthan is being known by the people who do need credit but that is not what the whole of Rajasthan is all about.
Rajasthan got No Rain:
That is absolutely the most widely spreaded myth about Rajasthan. Yes Rajasthan remains hot as fire during summers but not during whole year. It is one of the states which enjoys all the seasons i.e. Summer, Winter, Spring, Monsoon etc. as well.
No Trees Only Desert:
Same as the myth is that Rajasthan have no water, it is equivalently believed that Rajasthan got no trees as well. But that is also not true, Aravali hills stand tall throughout the state covered with greenery, forests and trees all around make Rajasthan looks greener and beautiful.
Rajasthan Got No Chill:
Rajasthan being the state with rich heritage and customs have a lot for fun and enjoyment – Safaris, folk songs and dances, historical forts and monuments and what not. Rajasthan has everything to chill even at in the desert as well. Camping at night in Jaisalmer is the most amusing thing one could experience in Rajasthan.
Camel-Camel All you here:
Camel is the most common domestic animal in Rajasthan which is most useful for the traders who carry goods for sale to a distance. They are strong and can carry a load without getting tired and feeling exhausted. But that is not the only animal we got here.
Chilies are what Rajasthanis only Eat:
Rajasthan do have the best of chilies in India and most of the dishes prepared here have chilies as mandatory ingredient. But chilies are not only what we eat, we also have the best of sweets – don’t forget the very famous ‘GHEWAR’.
Attire and Language:
Not everyone is Rajasthan wears Dhoti and Pagdi and not everyone do speak Marwari. Although that seems cool – but the attire and language is mostly in the rural region of the state and other part speak and dress as normal Indian as well.
Backward and Narrow Minded:
This is the absolute false myth about the people of Rajasthan. How come it can be backward if Jaipur and other cities are fast forward to the path of digitization and many of the big companies want to invest in Rajasthan? Plus people here are not narrow minded but they follow their traditions and customs with great zeal and dedication.
