FB Discussions - Khadi, Local Occupations, Sustainability
Someone commented on on AAP positively - 'politicians who look like us, and not khadi clad politicians of yore.'
But why. I wish everyone would wear khadi, and every village would have the chance to spin, and address the killing unemployment that they have been facing. My village people would gladly spin - they have been sitting unempoyed for ages now with succesive droughts.
I wore khadi for ages. Then I switched to handlooms, because of some reason I've forgotten now - that handloom weavers needed markets, and they get only non-handspun yarn, or something. I have never had reason to rethink or change that choice of moving to khadi and handlooms.
