Gujarat Government has decided to display the arts, culture and lifestyle of the state westernmost district of Kutch in this year tastefully decorated tableau for the Republic Day Parade to amble through the Rajpath ceremonial boulevard in New Delhi on January 26, 2017.
The front portion of the tableau will portray Kutchhi women busy doing their embroidery work with rapt attention. There are 16 varieties of world famous Kutchhi embroidery, each distinctly different from the other. Domestic and foreign tourists coming to Kutch carry back embroidered work as souvenirs and gifts for their near and dear ones.
The rear portion of the tableau shows Kutch's equally famous naturally cool 'Bhungo',a mud house with thatched roof that protects the people from the semi-arid region's hot and harsh summer while the iconic bedecked camel gives a feel of the unkind weather. Traditional Kutchhi musical instruments like Nagfali, Surangho, Boridho will also be on display. Artists in their traditional attire will perform live folkdances like Raas along the way.
