Mumal & Mahendra – A Rajput love story

Mumal & Mahendra – An Immortal Rajput love story

I am at the top of a small hillock where once was a Medhi (small palace) belonging to a girl called Mumal or Momal who was from Lodhruva, Jaisalmer. A broken wall, small platform and a single window are the only remains of this monument which was earlier named as Kak Mahal. Below I can see a dry river bed, where, once upon a time gushed in full swing, a river by the name of Kak.

They say the world is small and how true it is!

It so happened that we were visiting Lodhruva Jain temple on a temple trail around Jaisalmer, Rajasthan on a very hot lazy noon. As we walked out of our cars, the temple was on my left hand side and on right side were some people sitting casually on two stone benches under the shade of a tree.

One of them noticed me, moved towards me in short and fast steps, and then she offered me a bunch of leaves and said something in Spanish. Before I could even react, my guide told me not to accept and gestured me to move away.

The beautiful expressive Indian classical dancer.

Today I want to mention about a girl Arunima Sinha who was a volleyball player at national level. When travelling in a night train, she resisted some chain snatchers who had boarded the train at the dead of night. While others obliged, she refused to give her gold chain to them.
Result?

What should I start with?

What should I start this post with ?

Should I tell you where I am busy these days? Or should I celebrate something? Do you want me to narrate you an inspiring story? What about a travelogue?

There are so many things that I want to talk about but let us start with congratulating every woman on this earth for being a woman.
And whether you are a woman or not, first let me wish you all a Very Happy Women’s Day, for, you have come to this world because of a woman. 🙂
