Naveen, the great grandson of Shanker Lal C. , left Ajmer as a young man to build a successful career in Bombay’s high pressure world of advertising. Rajika, looked after the home and learned and taught French German and English. Meanwhile, the Ajmer Bungalow, once alive with artists, music and family, grew quiet. Coming home to Ajmer after long stints in Mumbai and Delhi, the couple brought back with them their passion for animals,entertaining and wide-ranging interests that include reading (everything under the sun), music - Indian and Western, gardening, bird watching, light trekking, painting, pottery, textiles, jewellery and a few more. Good food is a religion: the art of cooking, we believe, is up there with the pure arts. In fact, by opening the Bungalow to guests, we hope to share our interests with our visitors.We are currently researching the processes of goat cheese making and bee-keeping, and would welcome any advice or tips that guests may have to offer!
