"Gandhiji's philosophy still relevant"

By Our Staff Reporter

VISAKHAPATNAM, FEB. 15. Gandhiji's philosophy of rural and village industries and craft is still relevant and is needed in the prevailing conditions, a teacher and writer from Germany, Rolf Jahn, said here on Saturday.

He was speaking at an exhibition of photographs taken by him on artisans of rural South India at the Department of Fine Arts, Andhra University. With crafts and skills of rural artisans disappearing rapidly, there was a need to preserve and promote them. Mr. Jahn was of the opinion that India could not prosper without rural crafts and artisans. The Principal of the A.U. College of Arts and Commerce, D. Panduranga Rao, who inaugurated the photo exhibition, appreciated the German's focus on rural India. He felt that photographs of German culture too should have been exhibited.
