Now let us see what an exhibition will be like if it is to conform to the above conditions.
- There should be two models of villages—one as is existing today and the other an improved one. The improved village will be clean all throughout. Its houses, its roads, its surroundings and its fields will be all clean. The condition of the cattle should also improve. Books, charts and pictures should be used to show what industries give increased income and how.
- It must show how to conduct the various village industries, wherefrom to obtain the needed instruments, how to make them. The actual working of each industry should be demonstrated. Along with these the following should also find place:
Comparison between village industry and machine industry.
Model lessons for rearing animals.
Model of village latrine.
Farm-yard manure v. chemical manure.
Utilization of hides, bones, etc. of animals.
Village music, musical instruments, village dramas.
Village games, village akhadas and forms of exercise.
Village maternity home.
Subject to the policy indicated in the beginning, this list may be further expanded. What I have indicated is by way of example only; it should not be taken to be exhaustive. I have not made any mention of the Charkha and other village industries as they are taken for granted. Without them the exhibition will be absolutely useless.
