“The spiral trajectory of the proposed monument is analogous to the spirit of the spinning wheel. Its multiple members echo ideologies such as unity and diversity as built form comprises variant sections.” 
The Master Jury that announced the Charkha as the competition wining entry commented, “As Indians sitting in the midst of an emerging India, for us the story of this spinning wheel holds immense significance - from a form that transpires from the Ashok Chakra to the Charkha and that, which had imploded earlier has now exploded with vigour and vivacity to capture the dynamism of the momentum of India with the material of the future”. The structure is permanently sited at the Cross Maidan, South Mumbai courtesy the OVAL Trust Foundation.
