Sometimes Gandhi intervened: one such moment was when Kasturba, lay dying in his lap at the Aga Khan Palace in Pune. The nephew, however, was allowed to shoot this image of the leader, draped in a shawl, looking at Kasturba after she passed away in February 1944. According to several accounts, Gandhi kept a vigil for hours, sitting by her side, praying. "After sixty years of constant companionship," he said later that night. "I cannot imagine life without her."
Khadi is a term for handspun and hand-woven cloth from India,primarily made out of cotton. Khadi is not just a cloth, it is a whole movement started by Gandhi.The khadi movement aimed at boycotting foreign goods including cotton and promoting Indian goods, thereby improving India's economy. Gandhi began promoting the spinning of khadi for rural self-employment and self-reliance. The freedom struggle revolved around the use of khadi fabrics and the dumping of foreign-made clothes.
