“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it’s not luxury” – Coco Chanel

The nature of a luxury and the richness of the lifestyle are still alive in the land of Nation India.

The way of living and the set of circumstances do speak for you – live in comfort and play well – life is a tricky game, understand the rules and standby your terms.

My greatest possessions are my creations – We humans cannot be deathless but the monuments can definitely be everlasting. The stony Forts and Palaces adorned with a great and extraordinary form of creativity – the red and yellow sandstone – Outstanding wall art – striking rock-carves alleys – a huge high roofed open room studded with the great ivory throne- wide hallways dotted with tiny windows and YES the list is limitless.

Kings fought some great wars – Few tasted defeat and few stood stiff with victory – monuments were built – wondrous palaces were constructed to live a luxurious and comforting life – the leaders changed as per the circumstances- Days passed on – the courageous people were born to define bravery – and they died doing the same throughout their lives- people came and went but what is still rich and alive is their way of living, which is still followed strictly in the places of importance.

Some of the Royal Families are yet multiplying significance to the flourishing land of country India. The fair richness is still alive in the rocky walls of the Forts and Palaces, which dates back to an era that lies way beyond your thought and imagination.

Allow me to introduce few names of the Royal families residing in present date in the productive land of country India:

  • The Mewar Dynasty
  • The Wadiyar Dynasty
  • The Royal Family of Rajkot
  • The Gaekwads of Baroda
  • The Royal Family of Alsisar
  • The Royal Family of Bikaner
  • The Royal Family of Jodhpur

The Royals from the past and even present helped us to know a different and unique mode or way of living our life – where every action is carried in a quirky manner with up to standards.

Life is always more to what we live – a dream to touch the extreme height of the sky and make sure to be well- connected and rooted to the ground.

This is how it has to be – this is how its now, allow me to draw your attention toward the wheels, which can easily serve you with a comforting and soothing ride – one life [add importance and meaning to every second passing by]
