And even though I’ve railed non stop about the sweltering heat and the Amdavadi vegetarian culinary fare to P, I’m leaving the place with such a love for its colourful textiles, busy markets and stepwells. Considering Navratri is around the corner, the whole of Gujarat seems to be gearing up for the festive season. Leaving with the hope of someday returning to see the Rann Utsav. Just listening to the big mustachioed Mr.Patel whom we met at Sabarmati Ashram describing the way in which the moonlight turns the salt flats of the Rann of Kutch silver, gave me goosebumps.
Mahatma Gandhi’s spinning wheel at his residence – Sabarmati Ashram. Now a museum that preserves photographs, letters and artifacts from the Freedom movement era.
