Charka (Spinning Wheel) – India: Traveling Artists of the Desert

Take to spinning to find peace of mind. The music of the wheel will be as balm to our soul. I believe that the yarn we spin is capable of mending the broken warp and woof of our life. The charkha (spinning wheel) is the symbol for nonviolence on which all life, if it is to be real life, must be based.”

Mahatma Gandhi

Harijan, April 27, 1947, p. 122
