1st May 1960, and with first ray of sunlight hitting the ground, Gujarat began a new era. This was to be an era of self confidence, of trend setting, of proving to the world, what Gujarat and Gujaratis have been known for ages. It was to prove to be a watershed in history of Gujarat.
Since time immemorial, Gujarat and Gujaratis have been known for their leadership and entrepreneurial skills, for their risk taking abilities and for their desire to reach to distant territories seeking opportunities. Since the days of silk route to the trading ports at Lothal and Dholavira, Gujarati people have moved to different parts of the world and set their empires there. Be it to the mines of Africa or businesses of America or diamonds at Antwerp, Gujaratis have marked their stamp every where.
It is not just in business and entrepreneurship that Gujarat has led the way. The land also gave birth to Mahatma Gandhi, apostle of non violence, who initiated a new lineage to the philosophy of social reform and political struggles world over through his weapon of ?Non Violence?. The land also gave birth to leaders like Sardar Patel, Shyamji Kishan Verma, Morarji Desai, Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, Shri Tribhovandas, Dadabhai Naoroji, Dhirubhai Ambani, Poet Narmad, Sarla Tai, Javerchand Meghani and Thakkarbapa to name a few.
Since the state hood, Gujarat has never looked back and achieved many milestones and has led the way for other states to emulate.
