  • Fatehpur sekhawati is the place where myself and my dreams comes through…I had my Graduation from the college ie..Seth G.R.Chamaria college in 1971. A sleeping town ..easy going life.Local market and a library ..Saraswati library.
    another lib..Azad Bhawan Pustkalaya…and I remember my school ..Jangid vaidik vidyalaya ..my father Shree Ramniwas Bhaskar was the Head Master of my school.My school and college days , I always remember.but after 42 years things have totally changed. Every where we looks khandher, mentality of local residents are very poor…Relationship, zero.die for money…JYADA KUCHH NAHI..BURA LAGATA HAI….

  • I like fatehpur shekhawati, because jalalsar is my village about 10 km far from fatehpur.

  • Fatehpur Shaekhawati is a turely mesmarising place. Has relegious sparks and also is a great junction for god and godessess.It is a hub of rajasthani culture and relegious temples. Having Laxminathji temple and Amrithnathji Aashram in it aads a symbolic meaning and importance for thins unique and beautiful place. And this is all because of the wonderful people there and their belief.

  • काफी समय से फतेहपुर कस्बे से कोई संपर्क नहीं है .जुड़ाव के रूप में माताजी थी जिनका अप्रैल २०१५ में स्वर्गवास हो गया .उसके बाद वहां आना जाना बहुत कम हो गया ..आज अचानक याद आ गया, अपना शहर और उसकी गलियां …

    i always remember my home town

  • SHAKIR PATHAN

    hello sir
    fatehpur is my born place
    i love my fatehpur town in the district of sikar rajasthan
    AND I PROUD TOoo…

    “To hear never-heard sounds,
    To see never-seen colors and shapes,
    To try to understand the imperceptible
    Power pervading the world;
    To fly and find pure ethereal substances
    That are not of matter
    But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
    To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul;
    To be a lantern in the darkness
    Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
    To feel much more than know.
    To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a DESERT;
    To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon;
    To be a lots of havelis, & read the memory of the street
    Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching.
    To be a smile on the face of a woman
    And shine in her memory
    As a moment saved without planning.”

    “There are many beautiful cities im rajasthan that get by on their good looks, in that most famous & beautiful place are fatehpur shekhawati
    offer climate and scenery,; and there are cities like Detroit that have to work for a living,

    but my fatehpur shekhawati is so different whose reason for being might be but whose growth is based . Detroit has its natural attractions: and four distinct seasons for those who like variety in their weather, everything but hurricanes and earth-quakes. But it’s never been the kind of city people visit and fall in love with fatehpur shekhawati haveli this be a nice place to live.”
