As part of the Sabarmati Ashram Centenary celebrations, CEE undertook a project for the National Archives of India (NAI), to set up a month long exhibition and develop and publish a commemorative volume on the Ashram. Communication for Sustainable Development (CSD) team undertook the task of preparing the publication.
With inputs from NAI and Sabarmati Ashram Archives, CSD developed a 180 page book centered on the Ashram, covering its establishment, life in the Ashram, inmates of and visitors to the Ashram over the years, the major national movements that had their genesis at the Ashram, and current government programmes that take forward Gandhi’s principles and philosophy. The book is in three languages and has extensively used archival material and photos related to the Ashram. It was formally released on June 29, 2017, at a function held to mark the centenary of the Ashram, by the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi.
