Rann of Kutch
On the second day of 2010, my friends and I were on our motorcycles, riding to the Little Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. Some friends were with me, others were riding from different places in the country towards the same destination. We were gathering to celebrate 60kph’s 8th anniversary with a ride to the Little Rann of Kutch.
It was here that we had celebrated our first anniversary ride. Not the first anniversary, but the first time we had a ride with members gathering from all over the country. It was an extremely memorable ride because it was the first time we were attaching faces to online identities.
Vishu has written a great piece on the events that transpired in 2004. This time it was like a homecoming for those who had been to the Rann the last time.
This was my third visit to the Rann and the last time I witnessed a total lunar eclipse at 3 am in the night It was quite an experience, to say the least. In the Rann, one can see the sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset. All of them are magical.
This time, Meeta and Arnav were along. This was Arnav’s first ride and he had a blast. We camped on all three days and Arnav returned to playschool with toasted cheeks. Didn’t click many pictures, but here are some.
