Picture Of The Month

Mr. Naveen Verma from TWX visited Gujarat and captured the photograph of sunset in Rann of Kutch.

The remarkable Rann of Kutch in the western state of Gujarat is the world's largest salt desert, measuring over 16,000 sq km, which makes it much larger than some of the smaller countries of the world. What is even more amazing is that it turns into huge wetlands during the monsoons thereby providing an excellent habitat for resident and migratory birds. For the remaining eight months of the year, the largest seasonal wetland of its type in India is an enormous stretch of gleaming white salt. On full moon nights; the pristine white salt gleams like a million gems, making it difficult to turn ones gaze away from the bewitching whiteness under the starlit sky.
