from the Prakrit Gujjar Ratta or Gujjar Rashtra -
the land of Gujjars - a tribe that entered India
with the Huns in ancient time and wandering
through Punjab and Rajasthan, settled in western
India.Even before the advent of the Aryans,
Gujarat had trade links with the ancient
civilisation of Sumer, Babylon, Assyria and
Egypt. The pre-Arayan Harappan culture survived
here for over five centuries after it was
destroyed in Sind and Punjab. The ancient port of
