A summary of the program.
Rubi & Arup have been working with weavers to revive the dying craft and art of muslin weaving in West Bengal. Committed to the craft and weavers, they share their journey, while Rubi demonstrates hand spinning with the box charkha. She loves to have everybody taking part in the session to try it.
This annual spectacle allows one to do and understand a lot of science, one including to measure the circumference of the Earth (more easily today than other days), observe the sunrise and sunset directions to find our latitude and more.
It is based on a 'pay as you like basis' !
The Charkha is an outward symbol of truth and nonviolence.
– Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
