Portals to Old Ahmedabad

I swear I didn't put that beautiful blue bucket there; God was the stylist.

I wandered through the courtyard neighbourhoods called pols of old Ahmedabad for three terrific hours during a Heritage Walk, fascinated by the faded artistry and ambience of these doors and gateways. On this trip, I was fortunate enough to have been invited to not one but two modern homes in the new city of Ahmedabad — the beautiful residences of Neeruji and Rashmiji, the elder sisters of my guru Shubhraji. But I can’t help and wonder what kind of traditional Gujarati world these portals would lead to.
