Celebrations in the year 2000, the chief guest

Every year the celebrations for the Independence and Republic Day national events are proudly celebrated and with great pleasure. Lots of guests, including foreigner residents of this village, brothers and sisters of the village, teachers, pupils and respective elders are all invited to this event. Both events entail performances from school children, some so young that it is a delight to see them.

History

It has been said that our ancestors came from the north (some say from Saurastra) approximately three hundred years ago and inhabited a village near the banks of the River Purna. During this time there were lots of trees in this village, called Tavda and it was from the name of these trees that this Village was called TAVDI.
