If ever there was a ghost town, this is it. The place bears mute witness to the vagaries of time and nature, having borne the brunt of two natural phenomena – the gradual shifting of the river’s course, and more recently, the shifting of the earth’s tectonic plates. The earthquake merely accelerated the countdown to its demise. Lakhpat Fort in the distance. Jadeja stops at a flight of steps that leads to the ramparts of the fort. Being close to the border with Pakistan, the fort has a BSF outpost.

And so on. The Howrah-Ahmedabad Express, which passes through Nagpur, has a special bogie for Bhuj and Gandhidham. Besides the long distance passengers, there are the short range commuters going home to towns near Nagpur, after a day’s work. This mix of short and long haul passengers creates an odd situation wherein some people settle down for the long journey ahead while others wait in anticipation to alight at the very next station. In this fraught situation, one hears the rising rumblings of discontent.

My enquiries at the Bhuj bus station elicits the information that the only way to get to Lakhpat is to catch a bus to Ghaddoli, and then hop a ride in a jeep. It has to be the early morning bus again. Next morning I ask for the bus to Ghaddoli and a tout for a private transport service suggests his bus to Varma Nagar instead, as it is not as far and, according to him, there is a constant stream of taxis going to Lakhpat from there. After some hesitation, I choose Varma Nagar as my destination. At Varma Nagar, however, there are no taxis to Lakhpat.
