"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."

-Mahatma Gandhi
