Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad, was the place where Gandhiji resided before he entered into the Indian Political Scene. Its located along the river Sabarmati. It was here that Mahatma Gandhi spent his years before entering fulltime into Indian Politics.
Simplicity is the theme throughout the Sabarmati Ashram. This picture depicts the room of Mahatma Gandhi. As can be seen, the Mahatma was as simple as anyone could get. It comprises of his symbolic Charkha, and his wooden stick and his writing desk.
It was under such simple conditions that Mahatma Gandhi laid the foundation for a type of protest that was going to change the face of the world. Satyagraha and Ahimsa. Two philosophies that are to date followed not only in India, but many other countries as well.
It was in whilst his stay in Sabarmati Ashram that Gandhiji went on the famous Dandi March, 1930, protesting against the British Salt Tax.

Regarding the picture : i wanted to capture the old world mood, so i did it in BW and added noise to give it that old worn out look. The vignetting was done to add more frame to the the elements in the room.
