Garba staged during RPLI mela in Rajkot Head Postoffice premises.
For INFORMATION : " This Garba folk dance performed by women of Salem Sourashtra people.
In Salem Sourashtra dialect, the term
' Garba ' is called as ' GebbeeL'.
( Northern Saurashtra = Garba
Southern Sourashtri = GebbeeL) ( Ge - pronounced in short sound ie. hrasva)
[ गेब्बीळ ]
It is believed that, South Indian, sourashtra is older than todays' gujarati. The south INdian sourashtri is pre-gujarati and pre-marathi.
Because, south indian sourashtra people migrated atleast before 1200 years towards south. So their dialect also be older than gujarati and marathi.
