A city with a difference

Kutch Museum was a unique experience. The gold and silver artifact immaculately displayed on the first floor needs special mention. The sheath of the sword presented to an IAS officer needs special mention for its beautiful and intricate artwork. Of course, the huts showing the couples of various tribes are an eye-opener Ms. Neeta Joshi of Bharatiya Sanskruti Darshan Museum helped us with her vast experience of more than 25 years in this museum. Curiously it is manned by only two ladies including her, the other woman being responsible for clearing the premises. She deserves help financially to recruit more people for the upkeep of the museum We had planned to visit the Rann of Kutch only in our Gujarat Tour itinerary. However, unavailability of a hotel in Kutch compelled to stay at Bhuj which was a blessing in disguise. We chanced upon the Swaminaryan temple, both the old and the new one and were mesmerized by the beauty and splendor of both. The White Rann needs no elaboration and no words can describe the experience. One must visit the place to get enamored with the view and feel of the place
