jüSTa Nathdwara - The Legacy Continues
Nathdwara, Rajasthan , India

jüSTa presents its newest property, jüSTa Nathdwara; a resort situated in Rajasthan's holiest place. The hotel is located about a kilometer away from the Shrinathji Temple which is frequently visited by devotees from all over. The hotel is easily accessible by road from Udaipur and Ahmedabad.

The palatial architecture of jüSTa Nathdwara is typical of Rajasthan and is beautifully complemented by the surrounding landscape and the luxurious interior by acclaimed designer Deepika Govind. The resort has 32 tastefully designed luxury rooms, some with private balconies offering uninterrupted views of the sunsets and the whole of Nathdwara. Hotel is situated near Shrinathji Temple, Haldi Ghati Rd.

The Nathdwara hotel has been designed with sensitivity to the town's culture and spiritual significance. jüSTa Nathdwara is thus the best hotel in Nathdwara for you to truly experience the town's spirituality and heritage. 

jüSTa is a Sanskrit word, which means 'to welcome' to your home. At jüSTa hotels, this warm invitation of Indian hospitality meets international standards of luxury. The experience is further enhanced by Deepika Govind's unique hand crafted design for each jüSTa property. We believe in individualized service - therefore each of our hotels have less than 50 rooms.

jüSTa Pillars of the Brand

The Four Pillars of the jüSTa brand are Luxury, Contemporary, Green, and Indian.

Luxury - Lavish and opulent environs for the artistically inclined merge with the impressive softness of natural light to offer tangible luxury. Every piece of furniture, furnishing & decor allow the senses to enjoy luxury of an extremely high comfort.

Contemporary - Everything at jüSTa is modern & fashionable. Its luxury is seamless and efficient, yet extremely comfortable. Every detail has been individually treated with a sense of aesthetics, transcending functionality, transforming the daily experience into pleasure. This present-day lifestyle is supported by a wide range of services: wireless internet connection, a restaurant with delicious cuisine and 24 hour room service.

Green - Surrounded by tranquil green environs, jüSTa isolates you from the noisy hustle and bustle of the outside world. It creates a Luxurious haven, where 'Green' becomes a continuous thread throughout the jüSTa experience.

Indian - For jüSTa, art is more than just decor. We believe that art is the ultimate expression of a culture. At jüSTa, each piece of art reflects a dimension of the Indian culture, traditional or emerging. Unique art pieces have been integrated in jüSTa's experience and play a dynamic role in delivering the brand that is distinctively India.

Why jüSTa?

jüSTa offers a clear-cut design philosophy coupled with a distinct Brand Personality. The designer creates an intimate but discrete, edgy yet subtle ambiance; luxurious, yet not overbearing; a residential feeling of a hotel environment, but without its magnitude. This chain of small luxury hotels is capable of addressing individual requirements. Generally, the hotels have less than 50 rooms, making it inviting for the guest and easy on the efficiency of the staff.

Mumbai, Maharashtra , India

Godrej No.1’s new Honey & Glycerin soap gives you irresistibly soft skin in winters through the magic of honey and glycerine. Honey has been a part of winters in India, as much as the morning mist. For years honey has been known for moisturization and nourishment of the skin or even giving it a golden glow. The goodness of honey has been passed on from generation to generation. The new Godrej No.1 honey soap commercial is an ode to this tradition. In this TVC Bollywood’s favourite grand mom Farida Jalal is sharing her age old well kept secret with the audience. The endearing TVC is a complete hit on the Indian television screens and is being appreciated for its warmth and connect with different generations of an Indian household. 


​TVC focuses on the warm relationship between a grand mom and granddaughter and captures their priceless moments beautifully. It also effectively communicates the goodness & winter benefits of natural ingredients - honey and glycerine through a catchy jingle of ‘Mausam Shahad ka, Twacha Shahad Si.

The Creative Agency for the TVC: Creativeland Asia.

It is directed by the talented Aleya SenSharma of the renowned Chrome Pictures Pvt Ltd.

Mr. Sunil Kataria, Business Head - India and SAARC, Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL), shares, “Over the years Godrej No. 1 has believed in making the consumers experience the goodness of natural ingredients for skin care. With our latest product offering we aim to provide our consumers the reassurance and goodness of honey & glycerin. This soap is specially designed for the winter period which not only moisturises the skin but also has shielding properties that protects and help retain the natural skin hydration. We have launched this soap with a heart warming TVC starring Farida Jalal. This new TVC celebrates soft and glowing skin in winters through a real and endearing conversation between a grand mom and her granddaughter.”

On the TVC, Anu Joseph, Executive Creative Director, Creativeland Asia, said, “Godrej No.1’s honey-glycerin soap, we realised, is the best one around for winter skin. Had we gone the glycerin way, we would’ve had to fight with other glycerine soaps around. We decided to talk about honey. That honey is an effective way to keep skin supple and soft is a story that has been passed down generations. And that’s exactly what we have communicated in the TVC”.

BWI: Delhi Police's 'Found' Web-App Launched Successfully - Conveniences Delhiites Further

Thursday, December 31, 2015 12:57PM IST (7:27AM GMT)
Delhi Police's 'Found' Web-App Launched Successfully - Conveniences Delhiites Further
New Delhi, Delhi , India

Furthering its quest to move towards complete digitization of procedures, Delhi Police has successfully launched the Found app, a web-based application. The app comes as an extension to the previously launched ‘lost report for missing articles in Delhi’. Found is formulated keeping in mind another major pain point of the general public to locate their missing articles. In the very first week of its installation, the app has proven its immense utility for the general public with a good number of uploads.
The Found app now enables people to actually search out their missing articles or documents here, found by either the police officials or by civilians. All these items are listed on the Found database along with their identification number and put under different categories to help people locate their missing items smoothly. One can simply go onto the Found web-app, select the suitable article category, put in the id number/ serial number of the article and identify their respective object.  
A picture of the items is also attached for easier identification by the concerned person, who can claim the item by visiting the specific police station and displaying an Id proof for police record. The entire process is made highly comfortable, convenient, easy and time-saving with minimal hassle involved for the people. Accomplished within a time-tight schedule, India’s first ever Found app developed by a Delhi-based homeland security firm, ACSG Corp., is a substantial step forward in the digitization of Delhi police. The link to the app is available right on the Delhi police website’s homepage, wherein only the items with a valid Id number on them are listed.     
Found facilitates some special features, exclusively for the found mobile phone articles listed on the web, such as additional search availability. A lost mobile phone which has been found by the police can first be searched in the Found web-app database and then, secondly through the Zonal Integrated Police Network (ZIPNET). This double search also caters to the search of the missing phone in 7 nearby states apart from Delhi, including Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Chandigarh. If a mobile phone is found in these states as well, it can be found easily. Such dynamic initiatives upholding the cause of public bring to light the continuous efforts of Delhi Police.
