THE ‘RANN’ OF ‘KUTCH’ – THE SANSKRIT CONNECTION

Lets get straight to the point! What does the ‘Rann’ of ‘Kutch’ mean. 

The Rigveda and Mahabharata attest to the existence of ‘Irina’ in the Gujarat area. ‘Irina’ (ईरिण) is one of the words for ‘desert’ or ‘salty barren ground’ in Sanskrit.

The word ‘Rann’ is derived from ‘Irina’. In Sanskrit ‘Kutch’ (कच्छ) means ‘marshy wet ground’. 

That is exactly what ‘Rann of Kutch’ is. A white, salty, marshy ground that is a desert in part, and wet grassland enriched by a river in the other. It is a unique haven for desert adapted wildlife.



‘Dholavira’ in Kutch is also one of the sites were Indus Valley Civilization developed and flourished.
