I wish to acknowledge with sincere gratitude the help rendered to me in the compilation of this booklet by Shri P. Y. Chinchankar of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission, who readily made available to me all the passages from the writings of Gandhiji bearing on Village Industries, which he had assiduously collected by going through the files of Young India and Harijan.
