This fascinating book describes the experiences and adventures of an Englishman and his Gujarati wife on their first visit to Gujarat. This part of India was the birthplace of notable Indians such as Narsinh Mehta, Dayanand Saraswati, Shyamji Krishnavarma, Mahatma Gandhi, Dadabhai Naoroji, Vallabhai Patel, Morarji Desai, and Narendra Modi. Gujarat is relatively less visited by both Indians and foreigners than other parts of India (such as Goa, Kerala, Rajasthan, and the ‘Golden Triangle’).
Adam Yamey’s travelogue not only unwraps the delights of the State of Gujarat but also those of the former Portuguese colonies, Daman and Diu.
During their journey the author and his wife, who is fluent in Gujarati, met and spoke with many people ranging from autorickshaw drivers to members of a former royal family. From them, they learnt much about Gujarat’s past present, and future.
Although not a guidebook to Gujarat, this richly illustrated book will introduce readers to much that will find new and exciting.
