The year 2020 will be remembered for the pandemic and how we were forced to live in the confined four walls of our homes. But if you look at the brighter side, how about marking this year as a significant time when India became ‘atmanirbhar’? The government of India is emphasizing on making our country self-reliant and the best way to do that is by promoting #VocalForLocal. Usually when we buy something online, we compare the price, delivery date and reviews. Or if we want to use an app, we see the ratings. But have you ever paid heed to the ‘country of origin’ information of the product or app? No, right?
Did you know six years ago, in 2014, a Swadeshi movement, Make In India, was launched by the Government of India, as part of a wider set of nation-building initiatives, to encourage companies to manufacture products in India? Make in India is much more than an inspiring slogan and finally in 2020, we can see the passion that is required to make a progress in the movement. Not only Make In India, Vocal For Local too, has emerged as a great idea yet again, and hopefully these concepts will help develop India as a self-reliant nation.Self-reliance isn’t a new concept that our leaders have been striving to achieve as a nation and of late, the term has gained renewed importance thanks to the speech by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In May, Modi had addressed the nation and urged everyone to be ‘atmanirbhar’ to revive the country’s economy. It was followed by the ban on Chinese products including more than 160 Chinese apps. Because of the escalating tension between India and China, as an act of retaliation, the Indian government has decided to boycott Chinese products. Now, the emphasis is on ‘Make In India’ which is another step to achieve self-reliance of our country. Before we become even more reliant on the international market, why don’t we give the talent and skills of our nation a chance and be proud of who we are!
