Actor Purab Kohli travels to the Chari Dhand Wetland Conservation Reserve, Kala Dungar and the Bhuj Palace in Kutch and comes away tired, but spellbound by the sights of Gujarat, and the hospitality of its people

Purab standing on the salt flatlands: 'This was one of the most enchanting moments of my life. I walked two kilometres into this shimmering stretch of land.'
