Ame Gujarati. We use this word often. But do we know what it actually means? It refers to those who are all-inclusive, the sweepers who have been cleaning streets of Lothal and Dholavira, Ashaval and Ahmedabad, since centuries. It refers to those who have been dragging carcasses and digging graves of fellow humans exposing themselves to the most dangerous world of contamination. It refers to those who have been weaving cloths for necked civilizations. It refers to those who have been living in hills and dwelling in forest so that rest of citizenry can live decent life. It refers to those who have been carving sculptures and constructing temples of divine and decorated. It refers to those who have been toiling and tilling and drinking their own perspiration. The list is endless. And if you confine the word ‘Gujarati’ to only those who trade and do business, you are one of those ‘scoundrels’ on earth who cheat everybody in their game of last resort – politics.
