Heat, Gola and more Heat – Journey to Kutch – Phase II

Well, things didn’t turn out as expected. I was expecting the climate to be cool in the evenings and nights but it did not. Currently it is 1.51 AM I am 2 fans are on, one on the roof, another one next to me, table fan but still I am kind of sweating.

Today I had gone to a place called Dudhai with my cousin, a very small village; we had gone there for some ritual work. We left our home at 5.30 PM and we were literally getting heated up by the wind, just too hot. I wash my face, stand outside for sometime and I start sweating up. I seriously do not understand why these people don’t use ACs. May be just because they are used to this kind of heat but I am certainly NOT.

No signs of rain at all it had shown signs of rains around 4 AM in the early morning yesterday but drizzling stopped within few minutes.

So from last 2 days we are having Golas (Ice Cady) daily. We get very good special type of Golas here. (Dry Fruit, Ice Cream gola) I have clicked some pics too, to make you guys jealous but my bad luck is that, I left the USB cable in the living room and everyone is sleeping there. I will post the picture on Monday 😀

There is nothing much to write today but there will be more tomorrow. We are going to a place called Dholavira tomorrow. Will click some great pics, hopefully. The desert on the way is known as danger area, totally white sand and it is India’s biggest desert. Will give more details as I come across it.

  1. Hi Deep,

    my wife suggests you try the Double Roti, its supposed to be awesome.

    Also go to Asapura temple – tumhari harek kwaish puri hogi (mera cheque time pey ayega)

  2. hi deep,

    dholavira is a good place about ancient indian civilization and i have heard about it too.

    have been to kutch long back but could not visit there.

    there is another visit planned about august 4th week may get there do post you reviews here.

  3. oops forgot some more things,

    you said why these people did not use ACs if they can afford then why they should be in kutch they can be in mumbai like you :p

    otherwise if they can afford and still need to stay in kutch does 24 hour electricity supply guaranteed the ACs can become just a show piece. my sister stays in gandhidham and her AC becmoes shoe piece when its most wanted. :rofl:

  4. Sameer – Yes Double Roti, I just had 2 few minutes back and now plans are there to have couple of more tomorrow 😀

    About temple, actually I do not prefer going in temples so I will miss it 🙂

    Doc – Dholavira rocked, a very nice place to be…many things which keeps you wonder, how advanced they were 5,000 years back.. I will post more details about it in few hours…

    About AC, actually, I do not think so they have financial problem or anything like that but I think they are used to this kind of climate…
