Thank you all for your comments. The spinning wheel is $148 from India, made of mahogany and exactly what Gandhiji used, they tell me. I can see that it is self-contained; thus, it is a small factory that can be carried. I plan to own one.
I am curious what 20 cares of land in the country near Gujarat Vidyapith would cost an American. My understanding is that Gandhiji did his Tolstoy's Farm Experiment on 20 acres in South Africa, so I would like to run my own while working on my Master's and Ph. D. in Gandhian Philosophy at the university there. Your ideas are welcomed.
