Rann Utsav

Posted by Imtiaz 16/12/2014 2 Comment(s) Rann Utsav,

A riot of colour sprinkled on the white salt desert. A quirky profusion of design, as far as the eye can see. A fascinating blend of culture; peeping from the folds of a semi-arid landscape. The deafening quiet of the night, pierced only by the haunting notes of a Surando.


The mesmeric, twirling of silver-bangled women, outfitted in layers of hand-embroidered appliqué lehengas (long skirts). Or turbaned, moustachioed men in loin clothes and short skirts, heads bent and swaying as they play their goatskin drums with religious fervour.

When all these elements come together, the outcome is RANN UTSAV. A mosaic of exquisiteness, set against the luminous beauty of Kutch. On full moon night during Rann Utsav, the region wakes to an endless cycle of dance, music, art and craft in a celebration. This is the best time to visit Kutch, when the region brims with hospitality, vigour, magic and mythical flavour of Rann.

A cultural extravaganza that travels to different parts of Kutch, the fair, organised by the Gujarat Tourism holds a kaleidoscope to various art forms that reflect and capture  the uniqueness of the region. Last year, over 12,000 tourists from across the world flocked to the fair and returned home with a bagful of memories that are certain to last a lifetime.
