India 2016 (part I): Kachchh 1

Kachchh, Gujarat:

223o

evening in a village

In January 2016, I once again flew to Kachchh in the westernmost corner of Gujarat, India. I had come here almost yearly for research since my first visit in 2008/09, but this time I would not leave the country after my work was done – instead, I was going to live in Jaipur, Rajasthan, for one year.

Although Kachchh has seen considerable development in recent times, it is still a comparatively remote place. The countryside is dotted with little villages depending on agriculture. Its capital, Bhuj, is a bustling place with lively markets, but also serene ancient palaces.

After around two weeks in Kachchh, the overnight train took me to Jaipur in Rajasthan – my new base for the coming twelve months. Click here to see what I experienced there!
