The All-India Village Industries Association which is being formed
under the auspices of the Indian National Congress will need the assistance
of expert advisers in the various matters that will engage its attention.
It is not intended to trouble them to meet together or even the members
of the Association but merely to advise the Association whenever reference
is made to them in matters in which they possess special knowledge,
e.g., in chemical analysis, food values, sanitation, distribution
of village manufactures, im-proved methods of developing village industries,
co¬operation, disposal of village waste as manure, methods of
village transport, education (adult and other), care of infants, and
many other things too numerous to mention here.
Will you please allow your name to appear among such advisers of the
All-India Village Industries Association? Naturally I approach you
in the belief that the object of the Association and the method of
approach to its task have your approval.
