To the inventors of improved spinning wheel – We may state in reply to queries that several competitors are in correspondence with Mr. Gandhi in connection with the progress they have made in their attempt to manufacture a good machine doing ten times the work of the common rentia or charkha. The time for sending the machine expires on the 31st March next. Mr. Gandhi will be the judge and he will be helped by experts. The amount of the prize is Rs. 5,000.
So, of all the rentias that were before us, none could fulfill the conditions laid down for competition. As regards the prize of Rs. 5000, it is decided to hold the competition once more on March 31st, 1921. We invite all intelligent inventors to present their inventions the Satyagrhashram on or before this date.
