Jhilai village is also a Gram Panchayat, but the development activities have been rather slow. The people do agriculture as the main occupation and some people are involved in cattle rearing and keep buffalos to sell milk.
Consequently, the milk cake sold in Jhilai is quite famous in the nearby areas. Last time, when I visited the village, I bought some milk cake which was liked by friends in Jaipur.
During the pre-independence days it was a ‘royal tikana’ with a small palace and a fort. I visited the deserted fort and the palace to take some photographs. The palace was under repairs to bring back some of its glory.Children were seen playing traditional games and enjoying themselves near the palace as it is on the outskirts of the village and had open space. The small market place was near the bus stand which was unclean.
