  • Rashtriya Shala (National School,) in Rajkot, Gujarat, is a century old structure associated with Father of the Nation, M. K. Gandhi, popularly known as Gandhiji, Gandhibapu, or Bapuji in India. The school was commissioned by the great, saintly soul in 1921. This is one of the schools that were started on the non-cooperation and non-violent movements of Gandhiji to liberate India from the clutches of Britishers. Still, after 98 years, the school continues on the principles and teachings of Gandhi Bapu. It gives education and vocational training in weaving khadi (cotton cloth woven by hand propelled spinning wheels, Charkha, as taught and popularised by Gandhiji,) Indian classical music, and manual oil pressing in addition to teaching weaving of cotton, ikat (dyeing techniques), and patola (special kind of sarees worn by Indian ladies.) A nice heritage school that refreshes the memory of Gandhiji, throws light on life and work of the great leader, and imparts education on his principles.
