Back after a long sleep! Its very hot these days in Adipur - Kutch, the place where I live. We are all eagerly awaiting rain-gods to bless us soon with His showers.
We Kutchi's also celebrate Asadhi Beej (which is on 24th June, 2009 as per the English Calender). This is a very auspicious day for starting any new ventures, social functions, business & social ties. Its also the KUTCHI NEW YEAR DAY.
I wish, in advance, all Kutchi's residing in & outside of Kutch - a very happy & prosperous New Year -

On 14th of this month, we had gone for a picnic at Mau village of Mandvi Taluka. A family friend has a very beautiful farm-house there. To our pleasant surprise, we found a big swimming pool (actually, it was mainly a huge water reservoir meant for watering the plantation in farm-house).
We requested the owner of that farm-house, & he was kind enough to let us loose into the pool and have fun. We had ace swimmers in Neelesh Uncle, Pulin Uncle & Kalpesh Uncle who were there to guard us against any mis-hap.
We all had a blast swimming in the pool and the playing around the spacious & green farm house. We also wandered into various plantations, & learned a few things about farming. It was a well-organized farm with separate places each for bananas, coconut, mango (my favorite). Needless to add, we also picked & ate our favorite fruits from the trees!!
I will upload a few photographs of our picnic, soon.
bye for now!
