Gujarati people: Indian ethnic group that is traditionally Gujarati-speaking
The Gujarati people or Gujaratis, are an Indo-Aryan ethnolinguistic group who reside in or can trace their ancestry or heritage to the present-day western Indian state of Gujarat. They primarily speak Gujarati, an Indo-Aryan language. While Gujaratis mainly inhabit Gujarat, they have a diaspora worldwide. Gujaratis in India and the diaspora are prominent entrepreneurs and industrialists and maintain high levels of social capital. Many notable independence activists were Gujarati, including Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, and Narendra Modi, the current Prime Minister of India.
