Why Choose Khadi Products?
The simple and most concise answer to why you should choose Khadi over other brands and products is to support the Gandhian ideology that was the skeleton of the Swadeshi Movement.
Understanding the meaning of "Swadeshi" in this context is imperative.
In Mahatma Gandhi's words "A country remains poor in wealth, both materially and intellectually, if it does not develop its handicrafts and its industries and lives a lazy parasitic life by importing all the manufactured articles from outside. There was a time when we manufactured almost all we wanted. The process is now reversed, and we are dependent upon the outside world for most manufactured goods.
A very remarkable point was made when he stated that, "A remarkable awakening of the Swadeshi spirit has been seen. It has therefore become necessary to define Swadeshi goods. But in giving a definition care had to be taken not to make the definition so narrow as to make manufacture all but impossible or so wide as to become farcical and Swadeshi only in name.
"We do not want to follow the frog-in-the-well policy, nor in seeming to be international, lose our roots. We cannot be international, if we lose our individuality, i. e., nationality."
Besides the empowering reason of wanting to support village industries, there are a few other reasons why you should choose Khadi for your own benefit:
Natural & Handmade
All Khadi products are made by real people and not machines and are mixed and packaged with love by hand.
Mild & Herbal Formulation

On an ending note, to quote our Father of the Nation, "Economics that hurt the moral well-being of an individual or a nation are immoral and therefore sinful. Thus the economics that permit one country to prey upon another are immoral. It is sinful to eat American wheat and let my neighbour the grain-dealer starve for want of custom."
So are you and your family ready to make the right choice for your Nation?
