The Navjivan Press - The Printing Machine that became a part of Freedom Movement !
This reminds me of my days when my Supplement 'Freesouls' was published in Sambhaav Newspapers and I peek-a-boo through a small window in the basement to see the printing process and smell the ink !
Well, about the Navjivan Press, Shri Indulal Yagnik placed "Navajivan Ane Satya" a monthly published in Gujarati at the disposal of Gandhiji. He accepted the editorship, changed the name to Navajivan and converted it to weekly. As this was being published from Ahmedabad, Gandhiji suggested that Young India too should be brought out from Ahmedabad.
The first issue of Navajivan bearing the name of Gandhiji as its editor was published on September 7, 1919 while the first issue of 'Young India' under the editorship of Gandhiji was published on October 8, 1919. This was the beginning of the unique journey of the people of India towards freedom from the British Rule, under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi.
Navajivan Trust is a publishing house of great repute having to its credit publications of more than 800 titles in English, Gujarati, Hindi and other languages so far. #Gandhiji #October #GandhiJayanti
