Ahmedabad - India

Asia-India-Ahmedabad This is a postcard I purchased at Sabarmati Ashram the Gandhi's headquarters from 1917 to 1930 during the long struggle for Indian Independence.  I was in this city for work so had one day to see some of its charms. With a population of over 5 million it was near impossible to find a postcard . I did find none of the city itself or the state of Gujarat. I would suspect it is not a state with a big tourist draw. 

Unfortunately I had to cover up some of the text on the back of the card. I mailed this at the GPO in Ahmedabad. There was a philatelic counter, but it was not manned. So after a few minutes I discovered it was in fact within the Post office itself. So it was there I was able to choose from a good selection of current Indian Issues.

This is the inside of the Post office. A very busy office .

 This should be the Philatelic Counter but in fact it was not manned. The line is for something else.

The Entrance to the GPO in Ahmedabad

Rare maybe the first time I have put a photo of myself at work. Always enjoyable.

The World Heritage site at Rani-Ki-Vav build in 1063. A magnificent step well. Well worth the visit . About 3 hours outside the city

Finally a icon of the city of Ahmedabad .. The window carved in stone . The Tree of life.
