Romancing Nature

I had heard much about the scenic beauty of Udaipur a city in Rajasthan. So I decided to see it for myself. My visit to Udaipur in Rajasthan was solely to experience the City of Lakes. I decided to book a luxurious room with Trident hotel.
Udaipur is a rich and charming tapestry of lakeside palaces, forts, temples and gardens. Built over forty three acres on the banks of Lake Pichola, hotel Trident Udaipur is a comfortable place to stay. It is 27 kilometers from the airport and is perfectly located to explore the famed sites of the city, such as the City Palace, the Crystal Gallery, the Monsoon Palace or the beautiful Jagmandir.
The 137 luxury rooms and 4 suites at the Trident Udaipur blend elegance and style with traditional touches and contemporary comforts. The hotel rooms feature elegantly designed window frames and 'Jaipuri Kalam' or artwork in vegetable dyes. Furnished in soothing, earthy tones, one can see the 'Udaipur Green' marble in the décor, a specialty of the region.

It offers refreshing views of the hotel’s lush and manicured gardens, where you can spot the occasional peacock frolicking in the shade of an African Tulip. Furnished with handcrafted furniture, warm earthy tones and accented by local artwork from Rajasthan, these hotel rooms have a classic setting that offers sheer comfort and modern amenities to suit the needs of the contemporary traveler
Guests can enjoy a walk in the garden hearing stories of Bada Mahal - a 150-year old wildlife conservatory within the hotel premises.

I booked the Deluxe Lake View Room
With relaxing views of Udaipur’s tranquil Lake Pichola, the 18 Lake View Rooms are the perfect place to relax and unwind after a fulfilling day of sightseeing or work. My room was decorated in warm earthy palette, with handcrafted furniture and a king size bed, the room was ornate with local artworks and offered all modern conveniences.

A restful night on the posturepedic mattress and duck down pillows was a great welcome after a day of sightseeing in the city. It’s a great sight to view the hotel garden and the swimming pool from the comfortable chairs in my room.

Fitted with a seating area, the air-conditioned rooms had an interactive TV, a personal safe, and internet access. Coffee/tea making facilities and a minibar were also included.  It was a place to relax and romance with nature. At the Back there was a lake. In the morning I could see peacocks from the room.
Guests can also enjoy access to high speed internet for up to 4 devices with the compliments of the hotel.

The dining options include Aravalli the multi-cuisine restaurant and The Terrace, which serves international dishes. Amrit Mahal offers a selection of drinks, including wines and spirits.
All your needs are well taken care of. The staff is smiling, helpful and friendly.
There is an excellent business centre. One can make an appointment at the barber/beauty shop. Staff at the 24-hour front desk offers assistance with currency exchange, car rental or babysitting services. Parking is free.
It’s a traditional hotel seeped in luxury and the natural landscape rewards you for your stay. This would be the hotel of my choice on my next visit to Udaipur. It’s an excellent
hotel set in lovely grounds overlooking the lake Pichola shared with the more upmarket Oberoi.
This is also one of the top-rated locations in Udaipur.

Unexpected Magic of Warmth Moment

“Life is a rat race” this is an emotion experienced by almost everyone who is working and competing in today's world. My life would have been just a rat race however this rat race can become that much more difficult if you have a colleague who leaves no attempt to step on your toes. Mine was such a life but I could not complain for I was a small town wannabe moving to a big town in search of a better future and a stable job.
I took my time settling into the new lifestyle and getting used to bracing my self to the challenges of the corporate culture that was quite new for me.
The fact that I was assigned to a team that had an office worker who was nothing short of an office bully. He made me divulge every idea of mine and presented it as his own.
The points and ideas that I presented were opposed vociferously by him. As he was my senior there was little I could do.
Matters became so difficult that I was contemplating a change of job. I even started looking for a new opening that would be suitable for me.
In the meantime I tried my best to cope up with the office situation.
On one occasion our office was to be represented at an important regional meet. As luck would have it I and my bully colleague were picked up to represent the office. The job of creating the presentation was thrust upon me. However the presentation part was to be handled by both of us collectively.
I was assigned an office laptop to prepare the presentation. I diligently work on the presentation and did my best to make it as informative as possible.

As the conference was at an off site location we traveled and reached our destination a day in advance. In the evening when we switched on the laptop to practice the presentation. The laptop would not turn on. There was only the clicking sound of the hard drive. We got the laptop examined by the IT support team who informed us that the hard disk had crashed. This news made my heart sink and I knew for sure that all the blame would fall on me. Thinking of the consequences tears began to flow from my eyes.
As I was mentally preparing myself to face the music. My resourceful colleague arranged for an alternate laptop. As I had some notes with me I started recreating my presentation. To my utter surprise my colleague started helping me. He guided me like a true mentor and this was very encouraging. We sat throughout the night working on our presentation. The final presentation turned out to be even better then what I had prepared initially. When we presented it our ideas were greatly appreciated at the conference. We had successes as a team and I had earned some valuable experience and a very good mentor. When we left back from the venue. The bully had been left behind and instead the person who came along was a warm and caring colleague. #MagicOfWarmth
