  • The biggest reason why Gujarat rocks is - the Gujarati people. An old Sanskrit saying YATHA RAJA, TATHA PRAJA has now in the days of democracy, been turned into YATHA PRAJA, TATHA RAJA. As are the people, so are the rulers. Even in the feudal era, kings such as Sayajirao Gaekwad of Vadodara and Bhagwatsinhji of Gondal carried out developmental activities. In the heydays of socialism too, Gujarat forged ahead. The common thread through the times is the quality of people - for ever pragmatic, changing according to circumstances, positivists, progress loving in all spheres of life, welcoming all sorts of outsiders, all kinds of ideas irrespective of who they come from and so on.So long as this remains unchanged, Gujarat will continue to rock !
