ABSTRACT:
Gandhi's ideas on the rural economy are a shining example of Gandhism, which is fundamentally centred on the creation of a rural lifestyle that is independent and based on solid and sustainable development. In Gandhiji's view, this idea of a rural swaraj would be a democracy in which both independence and cooperation would be present. Gandhiji thought that a cottage industry centred on the village would give it economic power, prevent output from becoming uneven, and liberate rural life from the aspects of exploitation. Gandhiji's vision for rural industries was built around the manufacturing of khadi. Gandhiji incorporated the spinning wheel in his creative work for this reason. Gandhiji equated the leather trade with labour pride rather than disdain, which supports the rural economy. Gandhiji counsels the general populace to make use of commodities produced in rural areas to boost the rural economy and increase demand for the products of village industries. Gandhiji believed that the government's responsibility in this situation should include both financial assistance and the growth of the cooperative institution. Gandhiji saw the farmer as the cornerstone of the rural economy, which is why it served as the foundation for his major campaign. Gandhiji had a vision of the perfect village, where the residents would be healthy, intellectual, and sociable. Gandhiji's beliefs are still relevant today. Some examples are the promotion of Khadi, the idea of the PURA (Rural-Urban) Mission, the Start-up campaign, Mudra Banking, Skill India, the Swachh Bharat Mission, etc. Looks creative. Gandhiji's well-known adage, “Nature can meet all our wants but not our greed,” is a direct criticism of global warming and biodiversity loss. Day of Nonviolence, Green GNP, and Sustainable Development Gandhian thinking itself appear to be the source of inspiration for the global movement toward the idea of philosophy. In actuality, Gandhi's philosophy is founded on the idea of Sarvodaya and is built on life, truth, and morality, which are everlasting truths.
