Reasons for your Visit in 2019:

Because, Wednesday 2 October 2019 is going to be a big day to be in Gujarat. Indian Prime Minister and Gujarat native, Narendra Modi, has budgeted 150 crore rupees (US$23m) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi, Gujarat’s best known and most beloved son. But even amid all the fanfare there’ll be room to breathe in Gujarat’s calm and quiet corners: backwater townships with skies full of kites; lions, wolves, hyenas and wild asses wandering through serene nature reserves; and tribal communities painting arid Kachchh in rainbow colours with their mirrored and embroidered costumes.
