Gujarat (Gujarati: ગુજરાત, Hindi: गुजरात, Gujǎrāt, [ɡudʒ(ə)ɾat]( listen)) is a state in India. Its capital is Gandhinagar, while its largest city is Ahmedabad. Gujarat is home to the Gujarati-speaking people of India. The state encompasses major sites of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization, such as Lothal and Dholavira. Gujarat played an important role in the economic history of India throughout the history of India.[1] It has been the location of major ports on the Indian Ocean in both ancient and modern history, leading it to become one of the main trade and commerce centers of India. Lothal, one of the world's first ports, is located in Gujarat. Mohandas Gandhi, considered India's "father of the nation", was a Gujarati who led the Indian Independence Movement against the British colonial rule.[2] Even today, Gujarat has one of the fastest growing economies in India.[3]
