The Weight of White | Rann of Kutch, Gujurat India

Life for the Agariyas of the Rann of Kutch, is an arduous one. Simply existing in this isolated but breathtaking landscape that covers an area of over 30,000 sq kms. is difficult enough, without performing the gruelling labour of salt farming. What was once an inlet of the Arabian Sea now produces the largest amount of usable salt in India(?) With its blinding heat and barren expanses the landscape is mesmeric but inhospitable.

Whilst plagued by skin problems, poor housing, lack of water and education the Agariyas remain within the confines of their harsh environment seemingly willingly. Yearly monsoons bring relief to these farmers but require them to shift their dwellings and remain unemployed during that period, yet they believe life is better in the Rann of Kutch than in the city.

The salt farmers are stoic about their lives saying simply �Meethu jaaniye che. Eej haaru.� All we know is Salt. And that�s good enough.
