Fashion, design and business institute Pearl Academy on Sunday joined hands with Khadi India to pledge support to keeping alive the legacy of Khadi.
Students and faculty members of the institute spun the charkha to pay a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.
More than 2,500 students and faculty members took training and spun the charkha for over 60 days at their college campus here.
The thread spun from this activity was used to create an 8×8 feet installation of Mahatma Gandhi which was unveiled by Union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Kalraj Mishra at Khadi’s flagship store in Connaught Place here.
“Khadi is even more significant as it’s one of the prominent symbols of India’s Independence. It was our endeavour to educate our students about the significance of Khadi and I am happy that everyone spun the charkha with so much enthusiasm and has created such a beautiful tribute for Mahatma Gandhi,” Nandita Abraham, Pearl Academy CEO, said in a statement.
