ABOUT CHAALO GUJARAT
When it comes to celebrating, connecting and collaborating the Indian Americans, Chaalo Gujarat is like no other. For it is the vision that distinguishes Chaalo Gujarat. The vision to celebrate our roots, and connect to make a better world around us. The 2018 Edition envisages a much broader canvas than the previous editions. A canvas as wide as India.
Chaalo Gujarat is much more than a 3-day fun-filled event. It is thought-provoking, entertaining, informative and exhilarating. To some it is a unique opportunity to meet and reconnect with the community, and to others it is a journey of refreshing, recharging and renewing the spirit of being a Gujarati and an Indian.
