On his release from imprisonment, he employed his hours on travelling around India and decided to make a small town in Central India his headquarters (HQ).

Around 1936, Gandhiji established his residence in the village Soygaon near outskirts of Wardha renamed as Sevagram, which means ‘village of service’. Prominent part in the ashram was to employ harijans in the common kitchen to break the caste barrier. Many and significant decisions based on considerable national matters and operations were taken at Sevagram suburb.

Sevagram is around 8 km from Wardha town in Maharashtra and 75 km from Nagpur. In spite of multiple challenges, Gandhiji decided to settle down. Ashram soon became a full-fledged institution.
