“Made in India”, this is not just a phrase, it is a way of life which Indians have adapted with open hands. Made in India is a remarkable movement created by none other than our honourable prime minister Mr. Narendra Modi.
The movement originally originated from the Swadeshi movement which was created by the Ram Singh Kuka, who was then a member of the Namdhari sect. The movement included at first to wear only those clothes that are made in India.
This later leads to a massive chain of events and becoming a stage of a huge mass boycott of the British goods, who were gaining profits just by selling their products in India and then using that money to rule us.
With the help of this movement, Indians learned truly about their power and then started switching their daily lifestyles towards the swadeshi companies and products.
Gradually it became one of the most successful movements during the British rule, it took time in order to reach the masses. Once it reached the masses, there was no turning back.
This movement served mainly two major purposes:
- The mills of Bombay and Ahmedabad used to suffer losses a lot due to British clothes present in the market. This movement turned the table upside down and provided a huge profit to Indian companies and also increased employment.
- While on the other hand, due to the drastic British goods boycott, the British companies suffered a substantial amount of loss. The movement included a massive pit of burning clothes, salt, and sugar.
Though in present times, Britishers have left India, yet there are many foreign companies that still gain profit by selling their product. To suppress these companies, MR. Narendra Modi brought back the essence of Make in India and promoted the purchase of locally made products.
Due to this movement, India certainly gained a few things:
- India becomes more independent and less dependent on other countries, resulting due to the mass production and manufacturing of various goods.
- The money flowed within the country because of the investment in Indian products by Indian citizens. This stopped the money from entering the International market.
- With more and more usage of Indian products, the locally made products gained visibility in the international market and brought an inflow of money from other countries.
- The economy used to work under the banner of “by Indians for Indians”.
- The employment rate will also increase which will be highly beneficial for the local people.
