At least three times in the last century Ahmedabad was a “shock city”, an arena in which developments of national importance took place first and most intensely. Gandhi led India’s independence struggle; Ahmedabad was his home. He and his fellow citizens, together, honed their strategies for national freedom and for urban development. Immediately after Independence, as India began its modern industrialization, Ahmedabad’s textile magnates entered into multinational agreements to expand into new entrepreneurial directions based on chemicals and pharmaceuticals. They also brought to Ahmedabad such modern institutions as the first Indian Institute of Management, the National Institute of Design, and the Physical Research Laboratory. They chose to work with the Textile Labour Association, enabling that Gandhian union to flourish as a model for all of India, and later to give birth to SEWA, one of India’s most important women’s organizations.Printed Pages: 348.
