Glittering like Amber stone, standing proudly Fort Amber.
The terra cotta pink walls of the pink city of Jaipur, India 💕 Many walls of the city were painted in pinks in honor of Prince Alberts visit to India in 1876. Kinda love it!
Defining nobility differs in perspective to many.... But as a woman what does nobility mean? Previously you met Maharana Pratap Singh on the magnificent horse Chetak. As Mewar was constantly threatened by the Mughals battle after battle he trained his heir Amar Singh thoroughly in military warfare. All day Akbar's ministers were planning, plotting how to capture #Mewar as this was the only Rajput kingdom who didn't surrender to the invaders. Meanwhile Prince Amar Singh in his twenties fiery and out to prove himself one day by chance captured the famous Akbar's minister/poet Rahim's woman-folk and triumphantly got them over to Udaipur as prisoners. Imagine the fear and plight of the Mughal women - either slavery or death. His father was livid. A battle shouldn't be against the woman and children from the enemy camp but among men on the battlefield strength to strength, face to face, sword to sword, man to man not won by treachery or blackmail. He immediately ordered his son to accompany them safely back to the Mughal garrison. This incident had a profound impact on the warrior Rahim who hung up his sword and converted to being a Krishna devotee. That's #nobility to uphold and respect women without discrimination of colour, religion, race, ethnicity. To show chivalry, compassion and empathy without barriers. This lesson taught his son to be a great ruler later on. They are all long gone but their stories remain in #rajasthandiaries
