Deciphering the Principles of Sustainable Village through Gandhi's Gram Swaraj

Aishwarya T N | Dr. Sagar T S

Abstract: Gram Swaraj may be described as the Self-Reliant Village, a unique idea of rural reconstruction presented by Mahatma Gandhi long before India's independence that he developed through time. His Gram Swaraj idea is regarded as one of the alternative models of rural reconstruction, with a major focus on the holistic development of a society in which individuals are put at the center of the economic system. Gram Swaraj, on the other hand, is seen as an ideal development strategy. The purpose of this study work is to provide insight into Gandhi's thoughts on rural development. As a result, an attempt is made to reconsider Gandhi's notion of Gram Swaraj and its applicability to the current context of architectural development.
