Undated: Where the Earth wears anklets, the sky wears bangles and clouds take different shapes in happiness.

Where there is view of sand dunes everywhere and lakes increase the beauty of the land.

Where an occasion never ends without 'Ghoomar' dance and the forts sing proudly the songs narrating bravery of the rulers.

Where food contains the perfect aroma of Indian spices and water has the sweetness of love and care.

Though India is a land of diversity, there is one such place which has most diversified colours of life.

Rajasthan, the only place which homes the 'Death land' Tihar Desert and also welcomes you in its 'Pink City' of Jaipur. It is the land of rulers like Maharana Pratap and Prithvi Raj Chauhan and the home of the most successful queens like Rani Padmini and Gayatri Devi.

The tale of this place does not end only with Kings and kingdoms, Rajasthan is as much popular for its tempting food and mesmerizing festive dance forms as it is for the history of forts and palaces.

On the Foundation Day of the place that carries the culture and tradition of the country till date, newstrack.com brings you what Rajasthan has inherited from its ancestors....
