He felt khadi would be a means of erasing differences between religions and castes. But it wasn’t easy for others to follow in his footsteps and some others didn’t find it necessary. Here are some examples: Nationalists such as Motilal Nehru gave up his expensive western style suits and adopted the Indian dhoti and kurta. But these were not made of coarse cloth – khadi. Those who had been deprived by caste norms for centuries were attracted to western dress styles. Therefore unlike Mahatma Gandhi other nationalists such as Baba Saheb Ambedkar never gave up the western style suit. Many Dalits began in the early 1910s to wear three-piece suits shoes and socks on all public occasions as a political sentiment of self-respect. A woman wrote to Gandhiji ‘‘I heard you speaking on the extreme necessity of wearing khadi but khadi is very costly and we are poor people.’’ Other women like Sarojini Naidu and Kamla Nehru wore coloured saris with designs instead of coarse white homespun khadi. 1 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp You must login to add an answer.
