Significantly, people come from as far away as 100 kilometers to see it. Don’t forget the village youth who live abroad. The youth of his village enjoy Barood Holi.
Why is gunpowder Holi celebrated?
About 400 years ago, the people of the Menaria Brahmin community won the war against the Mughals and drove them out of the village. After the victory in the battle, Menar was given the title of 17th Umrao by the Maharana of Mewar. Apart from this a jam was also given by the Maharana in honor of the villagers, which is still with the people of the village. At the beginning of this gunpowder holi, when all are together, the same jam is used.
However, the event was canceled due to Corona last year. This time the youth are doubly excited about it. It is noteworthy that people working in other states may not be able to reach their villages on Diwali but they do come once a year on the festival of Jamra Seed.
Preparations have been going on for a year in Mendar village
People come here from far and wide to see the Holi of gunpowder. So the villagers start preparing a month in advance. This time on the day of Jamra BG, the Khatris are dressed like warriors. 3000 youths danced on the crown of drums with sword in one hand and sword in the other. The tradition of dancing has been going on for decades.
