The cyclical route to Saurashtra seems analogus to cyclical notion of time that exist in our memory. The travelling distance of 2000 km appeared like one cinema with several character, each is individual yet bounded by larger theme.

His argument on place based centrality to urban discourse which perhaps has not been dissected theoretically enough as compare to environmental science. He argues further that how biological…
