INSIDE A HUT, GANDHI NU GAAM

Gandhi Nu Gaam is a small handicraft village located near Khavda village, in Kutch. It is popular for a variety of crafts such as copper bells, leather bags, mirror work, puppet making and more. The village has a good mix of crafts which are popular all over Kutch, while in the village talk to the locals and have a look at their well decorated bhungas (mud huts).

A short walk inside the village took me to a hut which was not busy with tourists as the ones by the entrance; a young man was hand carving intricate pieces of wood to make coasters and jarukhas (wooden windows).
