Polo Forest - Wilderness in Gujarat
A night in Polo Forest, Gujarat, on the bank of river Harnav surrounded by the beautiful Aravali range of mountains, made a perfect ambiance for me to experience the tribal culture of Gujarat. Polo Utsav showcased 10 dancers from the nearby adivaasi area dancing on Gujarati folk songs called "Garba". It was beautiful to experience this side of Gujarat in the chilly foggy night around a bonfire.
Polo Utsav gave a glimpse of Gujarat's culture though folks songs like Lagna-geets, Marasiyas; dances like Garba, Bhavani etc. The best part here was the lip smacking Kathayawadi food made by the tribals in the most authentic way.
Namaste! I'm Medhavi Davda.

A High-Altitude Trekker & PADI certified SCUBA Diver, I love exploring the heights and depths of the planet with my regular doses of mountains and oceans.
Discovering myself & life through nature, adventures, travels, sports and dance has been an addiction since my existence!
Quite fond of the natural & cultural diversity of India, I've travelled extensively in my own country before exploring international destinations.
I had left my 9+ yrs of career in Software Industry in a quest to make a living out of my passions. I packed my basics in my car (gave away the rest) and lived in different parts of Himachal Pradesh for 16 months. This invaluable time taught me to experience life from a broader perspective.
I'm currently living in Mumbai to work with an Adventure Travel company as a product manager for Scuba Diving. I continue living a minimalistic life.
