Yesterday a friend of mine invited me to see a paying guest house in Udaipur for students and working women. It was the first time, I went to see a paying guest house in Udaipur.
It was a calm and nice place for students to stay like home.
I thought why I don’t cover this on UdaipurTimes.com, it can help those students who comes to Udaipur from nearby towns.
Joshi Aunt’s Paying Guest Home. The owner Mrs. Meena Joshi is running this facility at her own home since 2007 for boys, girls and working women coming to Udaipur for studying in different colleges, pursuing professional courses in fields of Accounts, Art, Computers and for those who come for a period of two-three months in order to prepare themselves for government sector entry exams or PET, PMT and CPT.
She never went outside for publicity as many people come down by hearing from their own relatives, and colleague of her husband working in other nearby towns and cities.
This is situated at Plot Number 257, Road Number 18, Ashok Nagar, Opposite Hanuman Park Water Tank, Udaipur.
There are 7 rooms out of which 4 are for Boys on the ground floor and 3 are for girls on the first floor having separate entry and exits to avoid intermingling.
Each room has attached toilet and bathroom. Every resident is given a separate bed, bedding, wardrobe and table chair to study. Housekeeping chores like cleaning of rooms and availability drinking water are taken cared by promoters.
Normal charges are about Rs. 4000 per person which covers stay, lunch, dinner and breakfast. If someone wishes to manage breakfast on his own he is discounted 500 Rs.
This facility is near to many Coaching and Tuition centers, and colleges like M.B. College, B.N. College, Shramjeevi College and Pacific College.
Visitors are allowed to meet the residents for 1 hour maximum but not allowed to stay overnight.
Whenever parents send their children outside to study they are worried about safety of them especially for girls. Here girls are not allowed to go outside after 8 pm and boys by 10 pm.
The Best part is that there is no discrimination of Religion, Caste or Creed. All people are equally welcome and are treated equal. Another reason of her facility being appreciated by people is that she takes care of all residents as if they were her own children. Many a times she motivated few boys after their failing in competitive exams.
