JAR Flag-off Ceremony (Day 7)

To commemorate the first day of the JAR program, the Rajasthan Foundation organized a morning Flag-off ceremony at the Hotel Khasa Kothi (in Jaipur) for the program participants. The six JAR program participants had an opportunity to get acquainted with each other over breakfast. All six of the JAR program participants (four from USA, two from Nepal) seemed excited and also a bit anxious about what the next ten days would bring. We were comforted to learn that the JAR-ites will be joined by a veteran Rajasthan tour guide (Hari) and an RF official (Ajit) for the entire ten day trip, and will have a chartered bus for our exclusive use.

At the flag-off ceremony, we also had an opportunity to meet with Rajasthan Foundation (RF) officials that were instrumental in setting up this program including: Vinod Ajmera (Acting Director), Rajeev Arora (Vice President), and Sourabh Taniwal (Executive Officer). The JAR-ites received some words of encouragement from the RF officials, snapped a few photos, and then were “flagged off” to commence our ten-day trip!
