I have a friend at my day job named Darshan, who is from Mumbai, India. Darshan is a very fun and cool person who enjoys learning new American words and talking with me about delicious foods. Darshan rocks. Anyway, just yesterday, Darshan, who is only too happy to talk to me of life in India, told me that the city of Jaipur, which I have actually heard of before, is also called “The Pink City” because many of the city’s buildings are a shade of pink. This talk of a Pink City got my attention right away, of course, and I decided to make the Pink City of Jaipur India my Pink Thing of The Day! Yay!
