I feel the charkha has lost its relevance as there are new machinery to reduce human effort. human effort is not a piece of cake as it can be put to much better use.

Thank you for initiating the debate. For people unfamiliar with the context of the debate, Charkha=spinning wheel. It holds a special significance in the Indian freedom struggle. It was a moral and political tool against the British imperialist class. It isn't really about the technology, as it is about the significance behind the brand. It is a symbol of non-violence, a symbol of rebelling without arms. It is a very powerful tool, something that has renewed importance in today's national scene.

Ah. Also, charkha signifies self reliance. Charkha and khadi were the twin weapons employed by Gandhi. So that was basically a 'fudge you' to British imperialists using India as a dumping ground. Self reliance is a pretty good lesson to keep in mind today, with our increasing CAD, raising concerns on our sustainability. A sign to develop our infrastructure, love our industries, reduce the dependence on foreign companies that are helping us in the short run, improving our fundamentals.
