In the early morning (before the traffic, the noise and the pollution return), this is (despite the hundreds of stray dogs, the litter, the stench of stale food from the night-time fast food stalls) a magical place. The sunrise, the cry of peacocks, the bell ringing in the little temple, the yoga devotees taking their cold morning dip in the sacred lake - it really does have its marvelous sides...Not even the piped music squeaking at you from the lamposts (Yes, I am not kidding - there are loudspeakers inside the lamposts all along the dam wall...) even the rubbish music and the kitsch decorations don't entirely destroy the atmosphere. But what man can do to spoil this place is done, thoroughly, again and again every day. Aided and abetted, it would appear, by the Rjasthan State Tourist Corporation or whatever other bunches of tasteless wackos are responsible for the 'improvements'. The road on the east side of the lake has been ruined by junk food stalls. Now a stretch of road on the west has been ominously widened - so we must expect the worst to follow.
