Bathed in gold at sunset, Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur. Built around 1460 by Rao Jodha, the fort is situated 410 feet (125 m ) above the city and is enclosed by imposing thick walls. Inside its boundaries Inside its boundaries there are several palaces known for their intricate carvings and expansive courtyards. A winding road leads to and from the city below. The imprints of the impact of cannonballs fired by attacking armies of Jaipur can still be seen on the second gate. To the left of the fort is the chhatri of Kirat Singh Soda, a soldier who fell on the spot defending the Mehrangarh fort.

Generation after generation passes away, the power in naked hands had been throttled at every generation, acceleration has been screeches to every Newton per thousand metre, people call us spoiled child but who tell them freedom is not created nor destroyed it just been achived, we impute ourself as anomous mysteries, we sit on an engine to allow burn our ass to reach somewhere no matter what! How much steep is street how much road is wide,we roll over all open to sky, we eviscerate our mind because only heart propels, yes we are bikers yes we are bikers and yes we r spoiled child and our legacy will chant the ecstasy. #royalenfield#thunderbird500#1901#greens#royalenfieldindia#royalenfieldbeasts#jodhpur#mehrangarh#bluecity#colorsofrajasthan#500px#underarmour#highwaycruiser
Lieutenant General Air Vice Marshal His Highness Maharaja Umaid Singh (1918–1947) was the 37th Rathore Ruler of Marwar and is remembered as the monarch who skillfully and sensitively brought the fabled desert kingdom into the modern age. A keen sportsman, Maharaja Umaid was a competent polo player, a gifted marksman and angler, and loved the great outdoors. His passion, however, was flying, and due to his pioneering zeal Jodhpur became one of the most important centers of aviation in India in his time.
It is no coincidence that the first landing ground in Jodhpur was laid down in 1924, in the very first year of his taking over the reins of government. By 1938 there were 23 throughout the state, and it had become a part of the Umaid Singh legend that he could, and would, descend from the skies unannounced and unheralded to inspect and supervise. The actual “take-off” point, however, had come earlier with the inauguration of the Jodhpur Flying Club (JFC) in 1931. The JFC started humbly with two Moth planes but progressed rapidly and by 1938 was at the forefront of civil aviation in India, with three international airlines frequenting the desert capital regularly. The maharaja, the first Indian prince to obtain a level “A” flying license and a shareholder in India’s first airways, lost no opportunity to fly guests and friends around in his new Lockheed. “I have no use for an honorary rank,” he complained bitterly to the viceroy, as the Battle of Britain raged in Europe, but his position did not allow him dogfights in Spitfires and Hurricanes; he had to be content with the command of his base in Jodhpur, which, as the focus moved to Burma and the Far East, came into its own. In 1941 the Jodhpur Aerodrome facility became the “No. 2 Elementary Flying Training School” (E.F.T.S). The Royal Air Force arrived in force a year later, and the U.S. Army Air Force soon after. Maharaja Umaid Singh was in the thick of things, and no one who served in Jodhpur ever forgot him.
