Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), , course: Clothes and Human Experience, language: English, abstract: A bonfire of English apparel and imported clothes on the porch of Anand Bhawan-Piles of richly coloured satins, silks, chiffons, hand-tailored Savile Row suits and starched shirts. She witnessed as the 'Fire put forth its first flickering tongue of flame' and knew deep within she also had to give up the French Frock she spurned and a doll, who she thought of as her own flesh and blood and not merely an imported object. Indira was torn between the love for her doll and the duty towards her nation (Frank, 2002). Finally, her sense of duty won over her love for the doll and one day she set light to it on the roof of Anand Bhawan. As a child the incident had such strong an impact on Indira Gandhi that it formed the first and most vivid memory of her life. The lavish and magnificent Nehru home- Anand Bhawan was transformed overnight from crystal chandelier, Spode china, sterling silver, Venetian glass, expensive carpets, Carriages, Arabian Horses to Khadi clad family members (Frank, 2002).
