For anyone who might care, this link has a downloadable scanned pdf file of Teach Yourself Gujarati. I found it somewhat accidentaly and I thought I might share it here. The scan quality is not very desirable, it's not bad in the first few chapters but gets worse in later chapters. It would have been better also if it had somewhat bigger font for Gujarati texts.. but Gujarati resources are rare, and this book seems to be out of print so it still is a good link if anyone is interested in this language. (There are a couple other links on Ulalemo thread as well.)

Pretty awesome. I'm not into Gujarati or Indic languages in general, but I'm a packrat with PDFs.

Is anyone else interested in Gujarati? I'm considering picking it up for a bit after discovering the Teach Yourself Gujarati book. Here are some good Gujarati resources that were posted elsewhere on Unilang:

There's also Colloquial Gujarati. Here is a sample of it with random pages missing: http://books.google.com/books?id=zSPoM31SX9kC&printsec=frontcover&dq=colloquial+gujarati#PPP1,M1

I've noticed that you can find quite a few of the Colloquial books on Google Books with Limited Previews like this one.

Thanks for the link! I'm focused on Spanish, Hindi and (to a lesser extent) Persian right now, but I'll probably have a go at this this weekend.

Safari (a Gujarati popular science magazine) is really interesting. It got me into the language.

That book infected me with the Gujarati fever as well, but I always wanted to save it for after I knew either Hindi or Urdu or both. Perhaps soon though I wouldn't mind dabbling in some.

This is a Gujarati movie song called "Bhooli Re Padi Re Hoon To" from the movie Hiran Ne Kanthe (1984), sung by Praful Dave and Alka Yagnik(!). I first heard this song as a teenager browsing lazily through Gujarati movie songs on musicindiaonline.com. So far, it's the only Gujarati movie song I both know of and can find the movie clip for:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMieXTB8L9I
And this song is a folk song created apparently both for increasing literacy in Gujarati and for helping people to learn Gujarati if they don't already speak it. This is the version with both the lyrics in Gujarati script and a translation into English:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uLbR6I3LKU
You can find the same video with the lyrics with a transliteration into Roman letters (instead of a translation) here and another with just the lyrics here. :)
