"Welcome To Ahmedabad".
Exploring Ahmedabad, as never before
The city of Ahmedabad was formerly known as Ashawal of Asha Bhil, Karnavati of Karanadev,Ahmedabad of Sultan Ahmed Shah, Rajnagar, the capital of Jainism, a politico-cultural city of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel and Amdavad of ‘Amdavadis’. The citizens are known as Amdavadis across the world.
Inspite of my busy schedule as a dentist, I always spare some time in reading and writing on Ahmedabad city. 'Ahmedabad Katha', 'Aa chhe Amdavad', 'Welcome to Ahmedabad', 'Amdavad ni Asmita' and 'Ahmedanbad Municipal Corporation' are my valuable research books, which are very well responded from all corners.
'Welcome to Ahmedabad' is a very popular book among the NRIs, tourists and city lovers. Its two editions are published in one year. You may visit its Website: www.welcometoahmedabad.com
Times have really changed. It is an age of visual media. I am making an interesting and authentic video film on Ahmedabad city. It will be with historical and heritage background showcasing all architectures, religious places, museums, entertainment places, institutes, business – a way of life and relative information in general. I would like to cover Ahmedabad from ‘Wall city to Mega city’ in this documentary film.
At present I am very busy with this project. You may help by providing me if you have good footages – videos, images, and documents of Ahmedabad city, specially;
A) Celebrations / Festivals
B) MahaGujarat movement
C) Any other Special events
