Gandhi and spinning
Arrived in Mumbai this morning and immediately left for an afternoon tour of the city which included a visit to the home Mahatma Gandhi stayed in while here in this part of India. His room has been left untouched and includes the upright charkha spinning wheels he used plus a more modern folding box one. You can see cotton punis in the foreground.
