Gujarati is a language belonging to the Indo-Iranian group of the Indo-European languages.
It is written in Gujarati script, an abugida very similar to Devanagari (the script used for Sanskrit and Hindi), but without the continuous line at the top of the letters.
Earliest literature in the language survives in oral tradition and is traced to two stalwarts, the Krshna devotee and great egalitarian Narasinh Mehta (later a source of inspiration to Mahatma Gandhi) dated to be in the 17th century.

 Kutchi language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kachhi (also spelled Kachchhi) is an Indo-Aryan Language spoken in the Kutch region of the Indian state of Gujarat, with approximately 866,000 speakers.
Kachhi is often mistakenly thought to be a mixture of Sindhi, Gujarati, Punjabi, and Rajasthani.
The Kutchi spoken in Bhuj and nearby small towns is grammatically and vocabularly distinct and pure from hodge podging with Gujarati, the persons living here also speak Gujarati as a seperate language and their accent is uniform and of a standard form which any Gujarati person from another town would be able to understand.

The origin of the language is traced to later or Puranic Sanskrit, as distinguished from the language of the Vedas, which is called Maha Sanskrit.
The history of Gujarati language can be divided into three periods: 1) the old (Apabhramsa) period (10th-14th cent.): During this period Parsis learned Sanskrit, and many of their religious texts were translated into Sanskrit from the Middle Persian versions.
Although Parsi Gujarati was used by a large number of Parsi authors for the benefit of their community, some authors, in search of purer artistic expression, resorted to Gujarati proper.

As the first language it is compulsory for all the natives and native speakers of Gujarati to study it at the Higher Level from the pre-primary stage.
For the non-native speakers of Gujarati (or the short term residents of the state), it commences from the third standard and the text for them is the one prescribed for the native students of pre- primary level.
The languages are taught either at the High or Low levels depending upon the native and non-native status that in most cases is similar to the distinction between the native and non-native speakers of Gujarati, the dominant language of the state.

Gujaratis form the second largest of the British South Asian speech communities, with important settlements in Leicester and Coventry in the Midlands, in the northern textile towns and in Greater London.
Gujarati families are found, in particular, in a western zone from Hounslow to Barnet, including both Harrow and Brent, and in a smaller eastern zone which consists of Lewisham and Newham.
However, because Gujarati has greater status in India as the language of state government and education, Kachchi has tended to be considered a dialect of Gujarati, rather than a language in its own right.

 Some Gujarati language resources
Gujarati is an Indic language spoken by approximately 44,000,000 people, primarily in the state of Gujarat on the western coast of India but also by sizeable communities elsewhere in South Asia and worldwide.
Most of the Gujarati textbooks published in India that I've seen are linguistically quite naive, amounting to little more than a collection of example sentences in Gujarati and English, with little or no analysis of the underlying grammatical rules of the language.
Probably quite useful in the context for which it was intended, teaching Gujarati to secondary school teachers already familiar with one or more North Indian languages, but probably not very useful for solo study or for non-Indian students.
