Gujarat and The Sea

Lotika Varadarajan (Editor)

What we know now as Gujarat benefited throughout history from its strategic location on the Indian Ocean. The region's interaction with a multiude of lands and peoples across hundreds - indeed, thousands - of years has, with few aberrations, created a society with a broadervision.

It was against this background that Darshak Itihas Nidhi (DIN), a foundation for studies in history, organised at Mandvi, a small coastal town with a long boat-building tradition, a symposium titled 'Gujarat and the Sea' with an emphasis on people and technology.
