Trip to भुज

Trip to Bhuj in Gujarat

Blissfully remote and uniquely colourful is Bhuj in the Kutch region of Gujarat, which for decades, even centuries, has beckoned travellers and traders with the promise of release from the restrictions of civilization.
Old Kutchis still recount the romantic tales of caravans that criss- crossed the vast expanse of the Rann, which formed a part of the trade route between Central Asia and the Far East. The age-old routes have vanished in the maze of Indo-Pak border with no less interesting spy stories, border infiltration, smuggling and more recently the mystery of a plane that was never traced but claimed to have been shot down by the Indian Air Force.
