The Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya organize exhibition the Charkha on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti the Charkha exhibition, A symbol of India's cultural unity and entrepreneurship, was inaugurated by senior litterateur of Madhya Pradesh and former Additional Chief Secretary Madhya Pradesh Manoj Kumar Srivastava.
Addressing the people on this occasion, he said that today is the birth anniversary of both Gandhiji and Shastriji, Both these great men believed in living a very simple, humble life. Whoever underestimated these two had to face defeat.
Giving the example of a childhood story, he said that Seeing the old woman spinning the charkha on the moon, Gandhiji brought the charkha down from the moon to the earth. This spinning wheel of children's imagination can become a weapon in the freedom struggle. Who could have thought like this except Mahatma Gandhi? In fact, for Gandhiji, the charkha was not just a part of a political strategy, but an overall philosophy of life. The first piece of cloth woven from the charkha, a symbol of economic freedom and independence, was produced in the Sabarmati Ashram. Charkha and Khadi became the symbol of the country's independence, behind which he had his own 'construction philosophy'. He believed that Charkha would play an important role in the revival of small industries in the village. This will eliminate poverty. Gandhiji considered the wheel as a divine weapon, Charkha is a tool that can change people from within. Charkha can also make the country stand on its feet.
While presiding over the program, Prof. Amitabh Pandey said that Mahatma Gandhi's thoughts were so influential that they left an impact on people not only in India but also abroad. Mahatma Gandhi's thoughts give a new perspective to life. His thoughts give confidence to people.
What is self respect and self reliance You accept yourself, and trust yourself, and have a sense of control in your life. Mahatma Gandhi was an example of sacrifice, restraint and simplicity.
