But before that let us bathe in the parched waters of Sabarmati.
After that let us rub our souls with the sea salt of Dandi.

Sabarmati is the river at Ahmedabad on whose shore Mahatma Gandhi built an Ashram.
Dandi was the historical pale where Gandhiji marched to make salt, to non violently break the salt laws of British India.

    Very interesting poem, Hardik. Had never heard of this history before, today.
    Please explain to me what an Ashram is, I do not know. It's amazing how
    little I know of your India, please enlighten me more with your knowledge
    through poetry. I enjoy your fascinating descriptions poetically written in
    a poem. Thank you very much for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
