Introduction

The state of Gujarat (a.k.a Gujarath), located on the north western part of India is the most industrialized areas of the country. Cotton mills and diamond cutting are the most prominent of the industries.

The name Gujarat is derived from the name of a ruling community "Gurjars", but the history of Gujarat dates back to the Indus Valley civilization, and some period sites are found. Gujarat has been a center of religious and spiritual activity with Jains, Vaishnavas (devotees of Lord Vishnu), and Zoroastrians living together for centuries.
