  • Historically I have felt a dash of sorrow every year on Ashthami. It means we are half-way done with Durga Puja, it would soon end. With its ending, studies would start and normal life would resume. No new clothes, no junk food, no night-outs... When people who have never lived in Kolkata ask me about Durga Puja I mostly run out of words. They assume its about religion, now this assumption can't be farther from the truth.

I guess it is more like a week-long 24x7 carnival. But the Gujjus would get it. Last year I skipped Durga Puja for Navratri in Ahmedabad and the vibe was similar.

Durga Puja is about being outside the house the whole day. Return only return to catch on some sleep. Its the same with each household. So the streets flood with people, dressed in mostly new attires. We stand in long queues under the harsh Sun, under the lashing rain, we tolerate the humidity and sweat when we go pandal-hopping. Durga Puja is an emotion. Probably the only 'puja' which brings the religious, agnostics and the atheists together!

  • Avani Varia and Udyog Bharti are glad to invite you for CHARKHA PRARTHANA session on the occassion of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

The charkha, or spinning wheel, was the physical embodiment and symbol of Gandhi’s constructive program. It represents Swadeshi, self-sufficiency, and at the same time interdependence, because the wheel is at the center of a network of cotton growers, carders, weavers, distributors, and users.

Program “Chalo Charkho Ramiye” was inaugurated on 2nd October 2013 in presence of eminent Gandhian & natural dye painter Shri Toofan Rafai at Satyagraha Ashram, Kochrab, Ahmedabad in Gujarat, India.

Chalo Charkho Ramiye is one of the activities of the project Tantu-se-Sutra. It is a contemporary charkha movement to Discover, Understand, & Accept creative art of hand-spinning & the spinning wheel “CHARKHO”.
