India oh India!
We’ve decided to begin showcasing the rich tapestry that makes India what it is today! From festivals, celebrations, exhibitions to displays of our rich cultural diversity, all things creative and beautiful, visually stupefying and engaging, in short, all things Indian, will find a place on this page.
Photographs depicting the magnificent RANN OF KUTCH
The Rann of Kutch is located on the North-Westerly side of Gujarat. It is a salt desert that borders both India and Pakistan.
See the colourful photographs from across the Kutch region – Dhordo Village, Bhuj and Bhujodi – as we went trigger happy on a recent trip!
(Please click on the photograph and view the panoramic beauty of the Rann!)
KERWANU VESH – A Dance Form Unique to the Rann of Kutch
Bharat Bhai, resident of the Kutch region in India’s western-most state of Gujarat, which is home to the splendorous and most whimsical of Nature’s bounties, the Rann or Salt Desert, is a performer who can only be truly appreciated when seen in person.
He deftly converts any piece of cloth into a stuffed toy-like object (a pigeon or peacock) which is devoid of any knots/stitch. Amazingly, he performs this feat while twirling round and round on the notes of traditional music!
Found no where else in the world, Kerwanu Vesh is an unmissable spectacle…
