Photographer's Note

My dear friends,

This is my first post about Little Rann of Kutch in the state of Gujarat. We traveled here in the last February.

The 2,000 square miles that comprise the Little Rann of Kutch in Gujarat is a vast expanse of arid land. Centuries ago, the Little Rann was part of the sea until an earthquake turned the sea bed into a sprawling desert. About 40 feet below the crust, however, is a lake of brine, concentrated enough to produce salt, on which the economy of the area has kept afloat.

The water is brought to the surface by diesel pumps and spread out in salt pans. Each pan produces about 400 tonnes of salt and with an average family unit of five working on two pans, it means a production of 800 tonnes in the normal six-month season.

This is a nice experience and I share to all.

with best wishes to all,

swapankumarroy
