Father of the nation and our founder Chairman Trustee Mahatma Gandhi was a great motivator to our trust.
In order to pay tribute to the great leader of the world the gallery depicts his philosophy and the life style. The gallery has the rare collection of ‘Gandhi Vangmay’, which explains the economic, social, cultural, political and philosophical thoughts of the great man. The voice in original of Mahatma Gandhi can be heard in the gallery.
In the gallery you will see a ‘Charkha’ (spinning wheel), which according to the Gandhian concept, was a symbol of self entrepreneurship, which alone can help the nation protect its bio-diversity and provide sustenance to the poorest of the poor.
Gandhi picked the Charkha because the British colonial rule was wiping out India’s textile production. Today’s colonization is around patenting of life, genetic manipulation of food, monopolies over water, seeds, plants and animals.
In this context the ‘seed’ becomes the Charkha.
