India is a huge country, you could have driven to any part of it but Why Rann of Kutch, Gujarat???There are numerous reasons for Selecting Rann of Kutch, Gujarat.

1. All India Meet (AIM) of HVK Fan & Forum was planned at Rann of Kutch.

2. Amitabh Bachan's Gujarat Tourism advertisement picturised at White Rann in Kutch near Dhordo wherein BIG B says, "Aap ne Kutch Nahi Dekha toh kuch nahi dekha, Kuch Din toh Gujaro Gujarat me", motivated us. [video=youtube;BvcRTCbF-mU]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvcRTCbF-mU[/video]

3. Excellent Roads in Gujarat.

4. India Bridge, Last Point where civilians are allowed, is located in this region.

5. Lakhpat, Last Indian Village, is located in this region.

6. Koteshwar, Western Most Point of India, is located in this region.

7. Harsh Vardhan’s Travelogue, "Kutchi Kaliedoscope" was one of the motivating factor.

8. Excellent & No Nonsense guys who where suppose to travel with me.
