To fools like me it just looked mighty impressive! Imagine my surprise when I was told by people later that Mr Krutarthsinh Jadeja and Mrs. Yashodhara Jadeja (the owners) are closely related the royal family of Bhuj. Here I was, with such a close brush with royalty and I was completely unaware about it!

I was supposed to fly out to Thailand on Sunday and on Thursday evening I got to know that the trip was not happening. I sat on the net for 4 hours without even blinking looking for a reasonable airfare. At the last moment cheap airfare was out of question. My second criteria was that it should be someplace warm, I didn’t want to freeze in cold. I got reasonable airfare for Ahmedabad and Kutch was the region I narrowed on. All good so far.
click I also managed to get a train ticket from Ahmedabad to Bhuj, it was a 7 hour journey. I still had to get a roof over my head though, at least for the first day. I did not look for a homestay first. It was only after getting defeated by the hotels of Bhuj I searched for a homestay in desparation. The hotels I liked only had an expensive room and I am still not used to spending thousands of rupees for one night stay. I am now glad that I didn’t settle for a hotel.

I straight away called Mr. Krutarthsinh ji and cajoled him to give the lower priced Lal Bungalow Annexe room to me. If he was surprised that I was traveling solo, he did not show it. He asked me to drop a mail, which I promptly did, mentioning my blogging credentials as well. Then I hoped it would work. When he replied in the affirmative I could see my trip really happening.

I messaged him from the train to ask for a taxi and he gave me Mr. Siddique’s number. So by the time I reached Bhuj, I had a taxi waiting for me and a roof over my head as well.

I told myself that I would walk that way to the place to click a picture! In a few seconds my taxi took a turn inside the complex, that ornate window was the part of the homestay! I was at Devpur Homestay. I was welcomed by Mr. Jadeja’s mother in the traditional way, with a tika, prasad and a garland. I was offered tea and that is the real test for me for any place. If they offer me tea and are generous with it, I am ready to like the place instantly. It was chilly and peaceful in the evening. When I went to my room I liked it as well (see the video at the end of the post), it was comfortable and well appointed. You can have a look at the rate card here. I was staying here for two nights.

He planned my itinerary for the next 3 days, put me in touch with 3 hotels and arranged two taxis for me as Mr Siddique was not available the next day. I could not have asked for anything more. I jokingly asked him if he charged a consultancy fee for all this and he laughed it off. And all this while, the other guests (two couples from Mumbai) and I had no clue about their royal connection!

The first day Mrs Yashodhara was not at home so when I asked what was the soup he laughed and said “don’t ask me! Let my wife come back”. But he took a guess and said it was cauliflower! I loved the food. The only downside of the place is that it is close to the village temple that blasts prayers at 4.45 am for about 30 minutes. The first day it caught me by surprise, the second day I opened half an eye and went back to sleep again.

They are very fond of the school but when I was there it was closed.
From Ahmedabad Airport I wrote a thank you SMS to Mr. Jadeja and he wished me Bon Voyage. I then said that everyone told me they were connected to the royal family and there was a silence. I further asked if I wrote about it it on my blog would they ban me from future visits? I was assured that it would not be so! I surely want to take Chhavi along the next time I visit Kutch. If I could have it my way I would drag Seshadri along as well!

I was supposed to be in Thailand the previous week but the trip got cancelled quite close to the trip, it was one of those things which is beyond anyone’s control.
Now I had one week of leaves and suddenly nowhere to go. It goes without saying that it made me extremely unhappy. For 4 hours without even blinking I kept searching for reasonable airfares. My husband suggested that why don’t I go to Madagascar and when I searched for it I realized it has visa on arrival! In the end I picked up a less costly destination, Ahmadabad it was with Kutch being the ultimate destination.
All I knew before going was that I was taking a train from Ahmedabad to Bhuj and then going 40 km ahead to Devpur to stay at Devpur Homestay. It is less of a home stay and more of a grand Haveli. If you are looking for a place near Bhuj do check out Devpur Homestay, it is a truly beautiful place. It is a lovely homestay (I know I am repeating myself) and I would be talking about it in detail soon.
I am completely indebted to Mr. Krutarthsinh Jadega (the owner of the home stay) for giving me a place at his home stay at such a short notice. And more than that for planning my entire trip from there on. Without his suggestions, I wonder what would I have done! It is a lovely homestay and I would be talking about it in detail soon.
The week just flew by and I am back after visiting a few places at Kutch. From tomorrow back to work and back to proper blogging. After all today is lazy Sunday. The picture above was clicked at Mandavi Beach in Kutch, Gujarat.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
