“Ishwar Allah Tero Naam, Sabko Sanmati De Bhagwan.
Ragupathi Raghav Raja Ram, Pateeth Paavan Sita Ram.”
(Some of us call you Ishwar (Lord Vishnu) while some others as Allah. We seek you to bless us.
Oh Lord Ram of the Ayodhya, the great husband of goddess Sita!)
If you hear this chant continuously, know that you are in Ahmedabad, the place where the chant originated. Ahmedabad, the city where the Sabarmati River flows relentlessly is also the city where the father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi lived.

You should actually look for best flight ticket deals to come here and see everything for yourself. The finery and the skills happen to increase the passion to try out cotton garments. Sabarmati Ashram on the other side is known to be the home of Mahatma Gandhi and is one of the most serene places of India. On his return from South Africa, Gandhi’s first Ashram in India was established in the Kochrab area of Ahmedabad on 25 May 1915. The Ashram was then shifted on 17 June 1917 to a piece of open land on the banks of the river Sabarmati. He wanted to experiment on various issues like farming, animal husbandry, salt making and many other things that were running in his mind and that is how we find the Ashram on the banks of river Sabarmati. The Sabarmati Ashram (also known as Harijan Ashram) was home to Mohandas Gandhi from 1917 until 1930 and served as one of the main centers of the Indian freedom struggle. Originally called the Satyagraha Ashram, reflecting the movement toward passive resistance launched by the Mahatma, the Ashram became home to the ideology that set India free. Sabarmati Ashram named for the river on which it sits, was created with a dual mission. To serve as an institution that would carry on a search for truth and a platform to bring together a group of workers committed to non-violence who would help secure freedom for India. By conceiving such a vision Gandhi and his followers hoped to foster a new social construct of truth and non-violence that would help to revolutionize the existing pattern of like. He also formed a school where he focused on manual labor, agriculture, and literacy to advance his efforts for self-sufficiency. Now the place runs well and is maintained with the same dedication. Many people wish to visit this place and that includes foreigners also.
