“We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same, but somethings in our minds has changed, and that changes everything.” – unknown
I recently came across a wonderful book on Amazon, ” Pocket Atlas of remote islands: Fifty islands I have never visited and never will” by
Kutch – its craft-rich landscape, resilient and uber-talented tribal people, the Rann of Kutch and the avifauna of Banni grasslands have intrigued and attracted travellers – there is something for everyone! In addition to the culture, the fact that craft is a way of life doesn’t seize to fascinate me, personally. The handcrafted embroidery, the textiles and crafts that we see as luxury are a way of life for them.
We are excited, and confident that you would enjoy this tremendously, as much as we at notjustashopper did hearing about it.
Personally, would love to travel there with her and experience it for myself. Like they say, “Don’t listen to what they say, GO SEE”. So, till I go and see, I would let my mind go on this adventure, pointing the map to Kutch! As the Dalai Lama says, “Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been” – Explore. Dream. Discover…Be notjustashopper!
