It is probably the most widely known Jaipur hotel, outside of Jaipur, in select circles!
Which is known as intangible value proposition. Aging and fading properties used to retain overthemarket value because of brand identification even though their sell-by date is long past ! New York's Pennsylvania Hotel or the Plaza hotel and LA's Beverly Hills.

Those were the days. Dosa was cheap but coffee was expensive.

That takes the cake. Please note, two masal dosas and two cups of coffee. My father gave me 50 rupees for my travel to Jaipur from Rajsamand in Rajasthan. That included railways tickets but was barely sufficient.
यो वै स धर्मः सत्यं वै तत् तस्मात्सत्यं वदन्तमाहुर् धर्मं वदतीति धर्मं वा वदन्तँ सत्यं वदतीत्य् एतद्ध्येवैतदुभयं भवति ll
Truly that Dharma is the Truth (Satya); Therefore, when a man speaks the Truth, they say, "He speaks the Dharma"; and if he speaks Dharma, they say, "He speaks the Truth!" For both are one. - Brihadaranyak Upanishad

I distinctly remember a masala dosa was 25 paisa at Nairs in the outskirts of Hijli on Salua Rd. They opened only the evening, and had no electricity !

What's for Lunch?

I distinctly remember when two fried eggs and chips, with a mug of tea, cost two shillings and sixpence. So, prices have gone up: we know!

That gave a very soothing feeling GP, I have no idea why.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

Egg and chips, egg chips and beans, do the younger generation still eat this type of food,.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Me too. I imagine the 70s to have been cool and the 60s dull. The 40s were cool, and the 50s boring.
