On 152nd Gandhi Jayanti on Saturday RK Mathur, Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh, inaugurated the largest ‘Tiranga’ made of Khadi cloth that weighs 1400 kg in the Union territory of Leh.
As Gandhiji started the Khadi moment in 1918. This moment was started not only for political reasons but also for economic and social reasons, for the poor masses living in villages in India. He wanted every village in India to plant and harvest their raw materials for yarn. Approximately after a century, a tribute was made to the moment he started by unveiling a ‘Tiranga’ made of Khadi was in Leh.
“Gandhi Ji had said that our flag is a symbol of unity, humanity, and a sign accepted by everyone in the country. It’s a symbol of greatness for the country…In coming years, this flag (in Leh) will be a sign of enthusiasm for our soldiers,” said Lieutenant Mathur.
“This national flag is the world’s largest flag made of Khadi. Its length is 225 ft, width 150 ft, and weighs 1400 kg. The flag covers a 37,500 sq ft area. It took 49 days to complete this flag,” said Vinai Kumar Saxena, Chairman, Khadi and Village Industries Commission in Leh.
Of course this is a proud moment of all the Indians. The tweet by Anand Mahindra is like the feelings of all the Indian after seeing our Indian Flag unfurling proudly at over 2000 feet above ground level.
