The highlights of this trip
Life of Gandhi
Immerse yourself in a our engaging Gandhi experience that unveils important national stories about Gandhi and his personality. Visit an iconic statue which pays tribute to the generations of Indians who struggled for freedom and indulge a specially curated museum tour at National Gandhi Museum that stands as a landmark for the preservation of Gandhian legacy.
The significance of Gandhi Jayanti celebration transcends beyond commemorating Mahatma Gandhi’s birth and his life as followers renounce violence and entirely devote themselves to Gandhi’s philosophy and principles of Ahimsa i.e living a life by following non-violence.
Contrast of life in Mumbai
India is often described as a “country of contrasts” and nowhere is this more visible than in Mumbai. The city hosts the world’s most expensive house (the Antilla Building, shown below), as well as the world’s largest slum, made up of hand-built homes made of little more than cardboard boxes. The city is inhabited by artists, crooks, exotic birds, and thousands of stray dogs. If Mumbai can be described in one word, it would be “contrasts.” But it is just as synonymous with Bollywood, the biggest film industry in the world.
Old Alleys of Ahemdabad
Into The Alleys of Ahmedabad – Ramblings on the Heritage Walk through the old city
Lost in the labyrinthine lanes of Ahmedabad, with the stunning two to three storied – sometimes even more – wooden buildings as company. The buildings are coloured in vibrant hues that screamed out loud Gujarat’s rich cultural heritage and vibrancy from every nook and corner. There stand-alone buildings, the traditional pols (cluster of houses comprising of numerous families of one particular group), temples, gaushalas (cow sheds) stables (albeit no horses now!), Jain temples, and so many things – all of these had different tales to share, tales of love, lust, pride, romance, war, and peace.
Gadhi’s Salt March
The place Gandhiji selected as the site for his symbolic breaking of the provisions of the hated Salt Tax, was Dandi, a seaside village in Gujarat. He decided to march the full distance of 390 kms, from his ashram at Ahmedabad, with a select band of co-workers. The appointed date: March 12, 1930.

“Like the title says, I was truly surprised at how much I enjoyed and took away from my visit here. While I have the general background on Gandhi this provided additional insight and education.”

Humble Place for a Leader
“Visited Mohatma Ghandi’s Smriti and words can not express how we felt. My wife and I were was very humble to see and walk where this great man spent his last days.
Seeing his simple possessions in the simple surroundings showed us what we have all become, materialistic!”
