Indian flag — Ghandi’s wheel, with which he made his own clothes
to frustrate multinational English clothes corporations. Not only
was he relentlessly against offshoring, but in order to effect
change, he spun his own fibres. Always! He was always making his
own clothes with his own hands all the damn time: he made that
simple cruddy loincloth with his own hands.
