Diamond business Hari Krishna Exports’ charitable organisation The Dholakia Foundation partnered with the Government of Gujarat to launch ‘Jal Utsav’ (Water Festival). The event launched at Het Ni Haveli in Amreli’s Lathi-Dudhala and is designed to promote water conservation in line with The Dholakia Foundation’s wider efforts.
“Thrilled to inaugurate Gujarat’s first ‘Jal Utsav’ in Dudhala, Amreli,” announced The Dholakia Foundation on Facebook. “A celebration of water, community, and sustainability. Together, let’s ensure a water-secure future.”
The festival featured a cultural experience crafted by Bhojabhai Rabari and new ‘Amrit Van’ botanical gardens which guests were invited to traverse. A rangoli of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was commissioned for the occasion and the first day of the event drew a crowd of around 9,000 participants.
“In Saurashtra, almost everyone is experiencing water scarcity. However today in this region with high salinity, the lakes are full with rainwater, thanks to a splendid initiative by the State Government and the Dholakia Foundation,” said Bhupendra Patel, the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council reported on its website.
Other features of the event over the weekend included a horse show, water sports activities, and paramotoring among others. The festival celebrated the stone laying ceremony of check dams which took place at the trijunction of villages Bhesan, Bodiya, and Sanaliya.
