I saw some eye catching colors in Kutch, Gujarat. The first frame that made my eyes pop out was at Narayan Sarovar which is quite close to Lakhpat. These colorful jalis were part of the complex of the temple at the Narayan Sarovar. It made me conscious that I should try and capture the colors of Gujarat.
The sarovar in itself is in urgent need of cleaning up. I would say if you are not too particular about its religious significance you could give it a miss altogether. But then it is quite close to Lakhpat. so you might as well do it!
Then there was this colorful ceiling at the temple complex at Narayan Sarovar. There are three such colorful displays inside the temple, all equally eye catching.
Whoever must be using these carts must be doing heavy work. And yet there was such a display of colors on the wheel. They were stacked up right at the Ahmedabad Railway Station. This one is a cell phone picture.
I am not a big shopper generally but I did go berserk at Kutch. The clothes were so colorful that I had to buy a lot of stuff! Their shawls, dress material, handbags and a lot more.
Finally there is the Rann of Kutch, all white as far as the eyes could see. The Rann Utsav of Gujarat Tourism was in full swing. There us a paved road leading to the Rann. At the end of it there were these musicians in their colorful head gears and shawls. It was quite an experience to enjoy the Rann along with their music.
So which is your favorite color out of these?

I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
