It is very interesting to note that some of us are dragged towards the high end products of USA, UK , Japan and the like for different reasons. One of the reason is to show off our class, some times it really will be unnecessary expenditure may on EMI payments, credit card using or by making a loan. Really is it worth to buy all those foreign items, even though we are paying for them with great difficulty? Really it is absurd.
On the other hand if we support foreign items, the majority part of the amount paid will go to other nation’s kitty. For example if we buy a Samsung mobile of the range of 40000 and the like, 30000 and above will go to foreign business and the remaining will be item cost and profit for Indian business places. The cost of the high end items is not really being the cost, we pay for the brand name.
At the other end many of us are supporting Chinese items for their low cost. Do you know, India is the major market for China. We buy diwali lights, crackers and many of the electronic items and gadgets simply for the low price. It is a waste. Instead you can use our earthen diyas to light in diwali and use Indian made crackers (Shivkasi). Like that clothing and so many other things we are just buying for to show off our status or simply for their low price.
Instead let us buy Indian products only. That means we are voting for our products at the same time we are keeping away foreign products to that extent. It really gives Indian business a boost, to the extent no one can think of.
Dollar is about Rs 70.
Do you think US Economy is booming? No, but Indian Economy is NOT GROWING as it should have been.
Our economy is in our hands…
A cold drink that costs only 70 / 80 paisa to produce, is sold for Rs.9 and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This is a serious drain on INDIAN economy.
What we can do about it?
1. Buy only products manufactured by WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.
2.You don’t need to give-up your lifestyle. You just need to choose an alternate product.
If we mind to to use alternatives of foreign items we already are using, we can change the TOTAL PICTURE OF INDIA.
MAKE BRAND INDIA NOT ONLY OUR CHOICE, LET IT BECOME GLOBAL.
