There is a unique relationship between Tanzania and Gujarat, as Gujaratis are the largest number of Indians living in Tanzania. So that’s why it’s a very special experience for me. The Gujaratis residing in our country have got the opportunity to observe this festival very closely. For this I am grateful to the Government of India that I have been invited. I have also come here and played Garba. It’s a very different experience for me. I am very happy to be here.

The foreign ambassadors, who were impressed by the enthusiasm and eagerness of the Garba players, also played Garba at Mataji’s Chachar Chowk.
On the sixth night of Navratri, young men and women dressed in colorful kediyun-dhotia and chaniya-choli (traditional costumes of Garba dance) danced and played Garba in the biggest Garba Groundd in Vadodara city. The enthusiasm of the players and the guest ambassadors’ curiosity-cum-wonder created a wonderful and unique scene in the Garba festival.
