Gujaratilexicon Project is the result of undying passion and relentless vision of Amar Shri Ratilal P. Chandaria, who spent more than 25 years on this project. Shri Chandaria had spent his initial years in Nairobi and had developed a special relation with Swahili language. Swahili and Gujarati were both close to his heart.

Shri Chandaria desired to bring Gujarati and Swahili language together for the benefit of millions of Swahili speaking Gujaratis across the world. It was his pet project and he was working on it in his last days. He had dreamt of releasing this in Nairobi. On the first anniversary of Shri Chandaria’s Amar Jayanti, Gujaratilexicon family released the SwahiliLexicon.
