Where are you from?

Tu Kaya Gaam Ni Chhe?
India ma Taru gaam Kayu?

These are normal questions Gujarati people get asked when they meet other Gujarati people from different parts of Gujarat.

What part of the state your ancestry is from makes a difference in how you speak the language, what traditions you follow and what food you eat.

As you could see in the world map when you look at the map of India the state of Gujarat is the western part of India that borders Pakistan. The state of Gujarat has 32 different districts, for most of you generation Z people this may sound like the hunger games and the districts in it.

Districts are simply division of territories made or created to make voting easier and for census purposes. Although the official language of the state of Gujarat is Gujarati, it is spoken differently in different parts of the state and there are certain traditions that are different as well.

Look at this map and if you don’t already know, find out where are your ancestors from. Some of you still may have a house or relatives back there and some of you live there.

Share with us what district of Gujarat are you from? Looking forward to hearing from you.

    I am from the most ancient city of Gujarat- Bharuch. Bharuch ,to my knowledge, comes in South Gujarat(Gateway to south guj.).I am a researcher on bharuch’s history. Nice blog 🙂 is my blog. 🙂 Aabhar.

    1. It is wonderful to know that you are dedicating time to do research on your roots and the amazing city of Bharuch. I too had the privilege of living there for one year and attending the Fertilizer High school there. It is a lovely city that has not received the attention it deserves. We will certainly look at your blog and keep up the great work in this direction.
