I brought with me all the articles presented to me by you. But I found after coming here that some of the articles are made in foreign countries. You know that I insist on using articles made in our own country, particularly in rural area. Even for a shave, I use an ordinary razor. At least in future, you should bear in mind in buying things for my use or even for "Majoor Mahajan" that you should buy things made in India. In Bardoli, for me, al small and simple hut bas been made. All things that go to make it would be used again when it is dismantled after I leave this place.
