RAW Rathore Lifestyle History
The second son of Late HH Maharaja Umaid Singh Jodha of Jodhpur Marwar, Bichla BaapJi Lt. Col Maharaj Dhiraj Himmat Singh of Jodhpur, Uncle to the present Maharaja HH Gaj Singh II of Jodhpur Marwar was a unique man. “What people couldn’t do with a Rifle at 200 yards, he could do with a pistol! Weapons were his passion and shooting was his heartbeat. He carved his own knives and took down Man-eater Tigers, as though he was the brain behind the kills! He drove his jeep with one hand and shoot Geese with the other, at the same time.
After the death of this older brother Late HH Maharaja Hanwant Singh Ji Sahib, Bichla Baapji became the custodian and guru, to the State of Marwar and of the present Maharaja of Jodhpur HH Maharaja Gaj Singh Ji Sahib, the II, when he was only four.

There is a nomad in all of us; the need to know and explore, what lies beyond is made easy by travel. Locomotives, planes and automobiles have made the world a smaller place. Tourism is now being recognized as a major donor to planetary corruption. Pollution and waste are killing the earth slowly, but surely and the degradation rate is constantly increasing/second.
This common concern has made us open our eyes to sustainable and responsible hospitality travel, as tourism is the only way to save our Wildlife.
