What comes to your mind when you hear the word “Gujarat” or “Gujaratis”? You are likely to think of Jethalal and his gimmicks from the popular TV show Taarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashmah. The show revolves around a middle-class Gujarati merchant named Jethalal, who lives in the suburbs of Mumbai with his family. Jethalal’s immense love for jalebi and fafda, his awkward flirting with Babita ji, his deep reverence for his father, his love for his wife, Daya, and his habit of seeking Taarak’s help at every step of the way has been leaving us in splits since the past 8 years. It has left an incredible mark on Indian households, making him an icon for Gujaratis across the globe.
However, there’s a lot more to Gujarat than what we see on the TV show. It is one of the largest states in the Indian subcontinent and is home to over 6.2 crore people. This state is backed by a rich cultural heritage, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Along with that, Gujarat is also popular for its lip-smacking food and its famous folk-dance called garba. Over time, this state has progressed in almost all areas, including the card game industry. Gujarat has the second-highest number of rummy players in the country.
Growing popularity of online rummy in Gujarat
There is no doubt that the people of Gujarat are deeply rooted to their culture. Friends and families gather around to celebrate each and every festival with great enthusiasm and fervor. To add more fun to the celebrations, they also play several rounds of rummy. Rummy, aka paplu, is a popular card game played across India. This popularity is also observed within the Gujarati community who often gather around and play rummy for stakes.
Indian rummy is a popular variant of the classic rummy game and is played by two to six players at a time. Each player is dealt 13 cards, which have to be arranged into different required combinations in the least amount of time possible. This game is packed with a healthy dose of entertainment and creates an adrenaline rush in the mind of every player. When played for stakes, the game gets even more exciting and thrilling as everyone brings their A game to the table.
Gujaratis can often be seen engaging in several rounds of rummy games. Junglee Rummy has a huge number of players from Gujarat, many of whom have given positive feedback to the game.
