Criticism the book "How to complete with foreign cloth" Title is presumptuous. It contains more authenticate information about Mills but less about handlooms Hand Spinning is the Key to complete boycott of Mill made cloth. No doubt hand spun yarn is not as strong as machine spun yarn, but that is no argument in favour of the latter. We cannot give up hand made bread for machine made biscuits.

Good that you admitted everything. you should clarify your aim of celibacy to your wife. Also you should grant her permission to remarry if she so desires. In ease she demands maintenance you should ask her to go to the ashram. The real remedy to meet the attack of passions is faithful. adherence to one's work.
