The setting is Kachchh. It literally means "something which intermittently becomes wet and dry". It is a large district in the state of Gujarat and a big part of it is the Rann. Marshy salt flats during the dry seasons, a vast wetland during the monsoons. This is practically a desert, a marsh, an island and a huge peninsula at the same time, depending on the season and your point of view.
The purpose is the handicrafts of the local nomadic and artisan communities.
The vehicle is matsya and the company is eclectic. It is hot and alien and it'll take five days.

To be continued.
