Book Description

Khadi: Gandhi`s Mega Symbol of Subversion investigates the power of a symbol to qualitatively transform society by studying Mahatma Gandhi’s use of clothing as a metaphor for unity, empowerment and liberation from imperial subjugation.
The book brings together historical evidence of Gandhi’s search for a semiotics of attire in his quest for personal integrity and socio-political change. From a multidisciplinary perspective, it closely examines the subversion underlying his sartorial communication.
The author also discusses the complex challenges in Gandhi’s highly polarized environment, such as the conflict between the British Empire and the Indian National Congress, Hindu–Muslim tensions, the urban–rural divide, and the question of untouchability.
The author examines the symbolic potential for change which khadi has, not merely as ‘revolution’ or ‘sedition’, but as a sustained, well-organised strategy for achieving full independence or purna swaraj.
