Rann Of Kutch

Rann of Kutch is a huge spread of broken earth, inland from the ocean, that vows to blow your mind. The nothingness for a significant distance is both nerve-wracking and dazzling with little desert gardens of water bodies and bush backwoods bending over as homes for pink flamingoes and wild asses. Ancestral villas with round and hollow mud bhungas (cabins) are the focal point for Kutchi weaving, tie and color, leatherwork, stoneware, ringer metal art, and the well-known Rogan painting by the solitary enduring master family. Roughly 200 km east of the Rann, is the Little Rann of Kutch, which houses the 4953-sq-km Wild Ass Sanctuary. It homes the vast populace of the chestnut-hued Indian wild ass (khur), just as blue-bulls, blackbuck, and chinkara.

The region was at one time a rambling shallow of the Arabian Sea until a consistent topographical shift shut off the association with the ocean. Throughout the long term, the district, at last, turned into an occasional mucky salt desert. During storms, the bog tops off with water and the wetland stretches out from the Gulf of Kutch on the west through to the Gulf of Cambay on the east. In the summers, the water dries to make a crunchy based bed of white pungent land.
