After India's independence in 1947, 217 princely states of Kathiawar and Saurashtra, including the former kingdom of Junagadh, were grouped together to form the province of Saurashtra, with its capital at Rajkot. On November 1, 1956, Saurashtra was merged into the state of Bombay. The modern state of Gujarat was created on May 1, 1960, out of the northern, predominantly Gujarati-speaking portion of Bombay State. The southern, predominantly Marathi-speaking portion became the state of Maharashtra. The first capital of Gujarat was Ahmedabad; the capital was moved to Gandhinagar in 1970.
Ever since its inception in 1960 Gujarat has been showing a new direction to the nation. It is conquering new grounds and is still at ease with the number one position among different states in the country. In these 48 years the state of Gujarat has gone through many turmoils be it 2001 earthquake or the communal riots of 2002, yet it has achieved a lot.
Gujarat has 6 port projects, in the Power sector 10 IPPs have already commenced generation and also construction of some major highways has been accomplished.
It has a broad vision of moving forward and of progressing. Its goal is to be at par with the developed nations with respect to economic growth. Ganesha's anxiety coerces him to do an astrological analysis on the state of Gujarat to predict on its future growth.
