Swadeshi, Ansal Plaza



This is a shop in Ansal Plaza mall that is called Swadeshi and sells Swadeshi, or things made within the country. Swadeshi was a movement started by Mahtma Gandhi during the freedom struggle of India. Under the movement, Indians were urged to patronize Indian made fabrics, especially khadi and cotton, over foreign synthetics.

Oh how I remember Mahtma Gandhi. He was a genius and a saint to a lot of people and to me.
