Kutch.. the land of offbeat composition

  India is a country where people are curious to visit different states or region. Every region has its geographical speciality. Kutch is a place which is known for it’s dry land and seashore. Over the years there have been many natural disasters on Kutch and has been adapted to drought conditions by the people. The region has many variations like Seas, hills, deserts, castles, palaces, fortresses etc.Now, It’s time for Rann festival in few days. It looks incredible  when the reflection of the moon or sun scatters on white rann. We can feel like the Moon imprint its own on the Earth. Reflections are finding the way to scattered on acceptance or purity. Weather it’s of nature or human nature. There is no world without reflection and by that it looks rhythmic and beautiful. 

Painting by me

 In Spite of salt rann in kutch there are some lands with farms and jungles in the other side. The rocky area of kutch express its’ plaster of time from the ages. Folk life of kutch has variations of colours in their living stories. We can see those colourful chaniya cholis and ornaments during Navratri festival. It’s a permanent dress in folk life of Kutch. This combination of colourful dress up and dry white land is amazing. That composition of nature and people makes a special image that looks different from other lands.  Kutch is known for beautiful craft work. The folk life of Kutch fills those colours with handicraft, Folk music, pastoral and living stories. Maybe it’s a duty of folk life that fills those missing colours.

Thank you so much.
