Ambapada is a small village near Waghai, Dangs, Gujarat. It is known for handicraft items made from bamboos.  I'm a regular visitor of Ambapada, primarily to purchase gift items. During one such visit, we carried a white project paper to do some preliminary product photography for the handicraft artists. Here're some photos of the trip.

on
July 16, 2017
My second list! During the last summer vacation, I prepared a list of hill stations in Gujarat. The article has since garnered a warm response from visitors and from Google too, it holds the top spot for the term 'hill stations of Gujarat'. Taking cue from it, here's my list of waterfalls in South Gujarat. Why waterfalls? Because waterfalls are gorgeous, powerful and mesmerizing, aren't they? :) Why South Gujarat? As I have sparse knowledge about other areas of Gujarat. South Gujarat is home ground for me.
