British PM Johnson visits Gandhi’s hermitage

STORY: Gandhi used the "Charkha" to make his own clothes, inspiring Indians to do the same in order to boycott British goods. The spinning wheel later became a symbol of Indian independence movement from the British rule.

"It is an immense privilege to come to the ashram of this extraordinary man and to understand how he mobilized such simple principles of truth and non-violence to change the world for better," Johnson wrote after visiting the Sabarmati Ashram.

The British Prime Minister is on a two-day visit to India during which he is expected to meet his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar.
