Khadi & It's Importent





Khadi was key for Mahatma Gandhi to open the door of freedom of India. But some people is not thinking like so. Khadi is a controversial subject. Many people think that in advocating Khadi, I am sailing against a headwind and am sure to sink the ship of Swaraj and that I am taking the country to the dark ages. I do not propose to argue the case for Khadi in this brief survey. I have argued it sufficiently elsewhere. Here I want to show what every Congressman, and…

Village Swaraj by mahatma gandhi

Then, if there is more land available, it will grow useful money crops, thus…

Religion

: "True religion is not a narrow dogma. It is not external observance. It is faith in God and living in the presence of God. It means faith in a future life, in truth and Ahimsa…. Religion is a matter of the heart. No physical inconvenience can warrant abandonment of one's own religion."
