The two primary thoughts that hit
our mind on hearing the name of Gujarat is diversity in tradition and colors of
culture. Yes, the home to age-old folk Diasporas has still not lost its
original and creative niche in spite of the first decade being a watershed
period in the new millennium.
Amid times of historic growth and
global development all around the state of Gujarat, it has still managed to
retain and further strengthen its unique flavor of local festivals and fairs.
As much as the emergence of industrial plants and refineries has attracted
global investment, the traditional Rann Utsav Gujarat still continues to attract
a lot of admirers and prompt them to book Gujarat tour packages in India.

The Rann Utsav held in Gujarat is a
month-long fiesta of carefree and national vigor; it is celebrated during full
moon winters each year. The existing generations take a couple of leaps forward,
while the rest enjoy being a part of the magical experience. This year, the
festival is slated to be held on 9th December 2011 to mid of January
2012. A widespread arrangement of vigil and facility for all enthusiasts has
already started taking shape. Other then patrons thronging the event from
across the length and breadth of the country, it also attracts a strong
presence of foreigners from both the West as well as the Oz.
to Expect at the Rann Utsav?
Rann Utsav is synonymous with a
series of events that is earnestly awaited by the entire community. Coming at
the peak of the festive season right after Navratri and Diwali, this marks the
end of a hectic quarter for whole some frolic and enjoyment. Be it dancing to
the tunes and ambience of the local folk music or the art and crafts that
define the race of the Gujarati spirit, it is an all-consuming experience.
The ethnicity of the local milieu
comes face to face with the visiting tourists. From a spell-bounding array of
fabrics (that are collected from deep interiors and have great demand among
foreigners) to some mesmerizing gourmet, the tourist is left craving for more.
The greed of taste buds comes along with the vagaries of the belly; however,
this is the time of the year to give in to your lust for exotic and to- die-for
Hailing from the very typical background of Kutch region in
interior Gujarat, this extravaganza of Rann Utsav in Gujarat
is associated with the integration and amalgamation of a host of distinct
endeavor. In line with a plethora of engrossing activity, the ardent visitor
also gets to travel to the outskirts of rural Gujarat. In the process, he gets
to identify the platform that finds the right blend of all human emotions and
habitat. People flock from far and wide to add to the spectacle of indigenous
fairs and also book unique honeymoon tours in Gujarat.
The people are common laymen who struggle to sustain the pressures of
life; however, all get lost in the fervor that is found here. The flamboyancy
of this whole month is too overpowering for any soul to ignore and not be
altogether swept away.
