"There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger & unhappiness."- Says Gandhi Ji
I am penning down after a few months as these thoughts are playing tug of war in my mind for quite a sometime now. As a child I always thought why we celebrate Gandhi Jayanti with so pomp. Of course independence fights,but many freedom fighters did that too.
Then why only Gandhi Jayanti?
As I grew into a conscious individual and craft and handloom enthusiast, then only i could realize that it's not the person we celebrate but we are celebrating a thought process.Now when I say thought process, I as an individual do not agree to all Gandhian thoughts. But only a single thought which changed my outlook was his vision of seeing every village weaving sustainable lives. His vision of hand spinning clothes and empowering rural communities to sustain their lives and skills changed my perception. But this thought was overlooked then and as well as now
