"I have no doubt in my mind that we add to the national wealth if we help the small-scale
industries. I have no doubt also that true Swadeshi consists in encouraging and reviving these
home industries. It also provides an outlet for the creative faculties and resourcefulness of the
people. It can also usefully employ hundreds of youths in the country who are in need of
employment. It may harness all the energy that at present runs to waste."
