What Makes Chandigarh the Perfect Family Vacation Spot?

posted in: Chandigarh | 0

“Chandigarh is the land, which is unfettered by the traditions of the past, a symbol of the nation’s faith in the future.” ~ Jawahar Lal Nehru

The union territory of Chandigarh was originated to serve as the capital city of Punjab right after the Indian Independence. Sketched by famous French Designer Le Corbusier, it presently inherits and sustains the cultures and traditions of Punjab and Haryana together. Situated in the foothills of Shivaliks, it is the doorway to the youngest mountains of the world.

Chandigarh is also the first planned Indian city post its independence. Proof can be found in the structured roads, well-planned houses and hotels in Chandigarh. Up to 10% of city area is specially landscaped into gardens. The LaLiT Chandigarh functions with the aim of paying reverence to the history of the city and places its efforts to bring out the best of what Chandigarh is about – beauty!

It’s always elevating to explore sites that exude a blend of originality and innovation. Whenever in Chandigarh with family, the Rock Garden in the first sector is a plat to behold. Spanning around 40 acres, the garden boasts of sculptures created with just industrial and household waste. The figures are fine examples of abstract art resembling humans and animals which are as visually appealing for the youngsters as artistically engaging for the adults.

A trip to Chandigarh is quite incomplete without visiting Sukhna Lake just minutes away from the Rock Garden. The little rides, gaming station, food stalls and boating are main attractions for family outings. Alternatively, a walk along the lake’s boundary is simply refreshing in the early morning and the evenings. Here’s an interesting fact, the lake which is spread across 3 kilometers was constructed as a reservoir fed by rain water back in 1958.

On the other hand, the biggest botanical garden in Asia – Zakir Hussain Rose Garden displays a variety of medicinal plants among varieties of roses. The gardens spread over 30 acres add another marvel in the list of the beautiful city’s magnetism.

The culinary delights of Punjab and Haryana come together at Chandigarh to satiate the taste buds of foodies. From modest eateries to fine dining restaurants in Chandigarh, the food is simply irresistible. The LaLiT Chandigarh uses freshly grown ingredients at its organic farms across India to fill the palates with the most sumptuous dishes across cuisines.

Its convenient distance from the capital city of New Delhi, easy access to various hill stations and the recreational offerings of Chandigarh make it the perfect destination for some family vacation time.

Discover Delhi for a Complete Indian Holiday

posted in: The Lalit New Delhi | 0

Delhi is a remarkably built city that thrives in history, culture, politics, economics and art. Being the 8th largest metropolis in the world, it is heavily populated and lies right on the banks of River Yamuna. Historic folklore states the city of Delhi was the site of the magnificent Indraprastha—the capital of the Pandavas Dynasty in the Mahabharatha. And several Hindu manuscripts also refer to Delhi as ‘Hastinapur’, which means the ‘elephant-city’. Interestingly, where the red fort stands tall today used to be a village called Indraprastha. During the British colonial period it was demolished, and it paved the way for New Delhi in the late 19th Century.

With such deep rooted antiquity, the capital of India is perfect to delve into and explore artifacts from back in time that blend seamlessly within a fast-paced, modern lifestyle. The best way to explore the city is to go beyond the regular tourist circuit and experience the actual pulse of Delhi—the streets. From eclectic and colourful alleys to the elaborately spread markets on the road, there’s so much you can find by just perusing through the city.

What’s more? Hospitality comes naturally to Delhi. In just about a few hours’ time, the city’s hustle-bustle gives you a feeling of belongingness and familiarity. The best part—accommodation is easy to find. From online hotel booking to walk-in guest houses, there’s a lot to choose from.

You’ll find Connaught Place, centrally located in the heart of the city, where the city lights shine in around circular roads and the streets are always bustling with activity. This is where you will find relics of Victorian architecture, from the British colonial period, that still stand tall. From a foodie paradise to a thrilling nightlife, this part of Delhi never fails to impress.

SPREADING THE MESSAGE OF PURE LOVE

posted in: Events | 0

It is human nature to see things in black and white and anything that does not fit the idea of ‘normal’ is shunned and ousted from the society. No matter what our belief is, we all hold the power and responsibility to make society more inclusive for everyone.

“It’s not just the government or the institutions, but it is the people who must act to make a difference.”– Dr Jyotsna Suri, MD, The Lalit Group.

The Lalit Group aims to strive for a culture that isn’t just diverse, but inclusive of diverse point of views, backgrounds, and experiences. This year’s Christmas and New Year celebrations at the Group will revolve around ‘#PureLove’, a message that the Group will carry forward in 2018. After all, people are all more alike than different, and every individual has the desire to live in a world that is collaborative, warm, encouraging and safe.

The Group has made waves with its ideology of inclusion that has defined its undertakings in the past year. Events such as ‘CU Next Thursday’, the country’s first inclusive night for the LQBTQI community, and ‘Pet Friendly Brunches’ are worthy of more than a mention. Such efforts by the Group have been quite popular and opened doors for people- and pets, not welcome to such places before.

Moreover, The LaLiT New Delhi has added another feather to its cap by receiving the National Tourism Award for the friendliest hotel for the disabled. Mr. Suri understood the basic human need to socialize and started special meets for PwDs (people with disability), across the Group.

“The Group does not only want to host such successful events, but also redefine society norms, to champion change. Such initiatives have resulted in The Lalit Group being the only hotel chain in the world to endorse UN’s LGBTQ standards at work- a big leap for not only the hospitality industry but also the country,” said Mr Keshav Suri.

Snowballing the initiatives, the Christmas and New Year Celebrations at the Group will be a celebration of inclusivity and diversity. Differently-abled individuals will have an opportunity get together and revel the Christmas and New Year celebrations, along with their pets and families.
Spreading the message of pure love through these initiatives, The Lalit Group aims to change the image of the country as an agnostic and unsafe place and replace it with one where all individual feel welcome.

Now, that’s how we show #PureLove ❤ View Video

Their latest endeavour in this regard is the launching of the LGBTQI brunches at Alfresco.

The Executive Director of the group, Mr Keshav Suri, has always been vocal about the rights of the community. “We are human beings, and that’s all that matters. The LaLiT is a family run group and we value people and relationships before all. Our doors will always be open to people of any caste, creed, gender or sexual orientation. Our hope is that one day we can bring about a change in a way people perceive other people,” he said.

We Serve What We Grow: The LaLiT Chandigarh

posted in: Events | 0

“When you have the best and the tastiest ingredients, you can cook very simply and the food will be extraordinary because it tastes like what it is.”                                           

– Alice Waters, American Chef

That is exactly what we at The Lalit believe in and that is why we emphasise on the quality of the ingredients used in our dishes. To make sure that the ingredients are all fresh and organically grown, we serve what we grow in our organic farms across the various regions in India.

Researches reveal that humans tend to consume food through all the senses even before actually eating it. The way the food looks, smells and feels matters a lot to be finally concluded as tasty. The organically grown vegetables, fruits and spices we use make sure that the dishes served at The Lalit have the original colours, fragrance, texture and taste that they are meant to have.

Apart from all these factors, there is one more dimension added to the Organic food at The LaLiT Chandigarh. The additional dimension is of love and compassion, which is added to the food crops when they are grown by Chef Suriya. Yes, an expert chef transforms into a farmer, who takes care of his crops like a father. His love for the crops can be seen when he dedicates 3 -4 hours, everyday to the fields without fail.

 

Chief Suriya at The LaLiT Chandigarh

One can see the specimens of his love and hard work in the small pots which have one of his plants and are displayed on the buffet counters every day. In case the cute plants make you eager to see the rest of the crops, you will never hear a ‘No’ from Chef Suriya as an answer. He would not only take you there but would also walk you through the gardens himself so that you don’t miss any of the beautiful details.

“I love to spend time in these gardens. I have found my second love after cooking in growing these lovely crops. I love to cook with the self grown and fresh ingredients because I know the final dish would taste absolutely the way I wish them to. I sincerely thank The Lalit to let me discover and follow my both the passions,” says Chef Suriya.

That is what happens when you work at The Lalit. You can explore new things and then work becomes fun. While promoting ‘Healthy eating, healthy living’ we also encourage ‘Do what you love and you will love what you do.’
