Sevagram . . . A call to simplicity

About 5 years back, I got an opportunity to visit Sevagram. This was where the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhiji had his ashram. Below are some of the snaps taken during the visit. The first thing that strikes you is the stark simplicity of the place. I hope this post will be a gentle reminder about our beginnings as an independent country.
