Gujarat is a happy land. You meet helpful people round every corner, smiling and ready to help. It is boisterous in colour and sound, simple in its living and always has a homely feeling to it. And yet, surprisingly, it is not as discovered as it should be. Our 8 day long sojourn in the Gujju land is just to do that.
Let’s feel the much hyped Gujarat with its progressive thinking and traditional living. Discover Ahmedabad, which has been in our minds lately, thanks to a certain Mr. Modi.
And discover Kutch. Splendid, Mysterious and overwhelmingly diverse Kutch. Soak in the landscapes, lore and hospitality. And of course, enjoy the sisterhood of your fellow travellers.
