Mahatma Gandhi (father of the nation) urged his countrymen and womenfolk to boycott the British textile imports, that were making the mills of Manchester and Lancashire prosper.

By developing a cottage industry based on the family spinning wheel, he showed them the way. He requested Indians to burn foreign clothes and make the spinning wheel (Charkha) "not only a symbol of simplicity and economic freedom, but also a symbol of peace."

Through his teachings, Gandhi brought the use of the Charkha into use among the masses referring to it as the symbol of non-violence, independence, and the tool needed to lift India out of poverty.

Gandhi was of the opinion that the concept of nationalism and social cohesion can be sown through the sound of the spinning wheel, expressing his desire to die with his hand at the spinning wheel.
