Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated in India as a national holiday to mark the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi was the face of India’s freedom struggle against the British rule that lasted for many decades. He led the non-violence movement from the front and ensured that India achieved its freedom from the British Empire without killing people and sacrificing more lives.

Gandhi Ji always resorted to peaceful movements like the Non-cooperation movement and the Civil Disobedience movement during his struggle for freedom. He firmly followed the path of Satyagraha (Truth) and Non-violence. He also discouraged the use of British goods and advocated the use Indian made items for the benefit of the freedom struggle.

His mandate to use Indian goods brought about a revolution in the India, particularly in the Khadi Industry, as he strongly urged all Indians to use and wear Khadi instead of the British made textile goods. Khadi refers to the handspun cloth and is mainly made up of cotton. Silk or wool is often used along with cotton in order to produce Khadi. All these items are converted into a yarn using a spinning wheel, called Charkha.

Khadi is a versatile cloth material as it adapts to the climatic conditions to provide comfort to its user. It provides coolness in summer and promotes warmth during the winters. Many designers use Khadi on a regular basis and always ensure to include it in their collection. It is a fashionable item and is widely used in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

Mahatma Gandhi started the Khadi movement to discourage Indians from buying heavy priced British goods. British used to buy cotton in India and send it to their country to use it in making textiles and clothes. The finished products were then brought to India to be sold with a hefty price tag. Gandhi Ji promoted the use of Khadi by spinning charkha to urge Indians to buy Indian goods and encourage self-employment.
