I lived in Kutch for two years and still miss the magic of the place - so it is always with pleasure that I read travelogues from there - another gem from Sunita Chakraborty - http://tinyurl.com/79oovpk
This December, we invite you to an incredibly Indian getaway at the White Rann of Kutch. Imagine a flat expanse of land, with nothing around as far as your eyes can see, covered with a solid layer of salt that you could easily mistake for snow. Imagine the colors, music and dances of Kutch come alive at the Rann Utsav, on a night that’s only lit by a full moon, reflected by the salt below, with more stars than you’ve ever seen. Kutch is perhaps India’s most ecologically and ethnically diverse regions, and at the Rann Utsav, we celebrate this diversity.
Stay with us at the Shaam-e-Sarhad Village Resort in Hodka, which taught and inspired our co-founder Gouthami to set up Travel Another India. Shaam-e-Sarhad, meaning Sunset at the Border, is completely owned and managed by the residents of Hodka Village in Northern Kutch. The resort is designed in local mud architectural style, as the twelfth hamlet of Hodka. You’ll be charmed by the Kutchi hospitality and impressed with their myriad forms of Kutchi crafts. The White Rann will be at your doorstep from here, and you’ll fall in love with another India, serenaded by the music of Hodka.
