12th May 2020, 8 PM, address to the nation by PM Modi shall be remembered for generations to come.  I am not talking about the 20-lakh crore package announced to bring economy on track suffering due to pandemic. Let’s bring clarity on broader level. We have been destroyed economically and socially by Mughals then britishers for long. Even after independence, our minds have been poisoned that we cannot be the good manufactures and service providers than China and other developed nations. Slowly, we became addicted to Chinese products, just check in your house how many commodities are made in China, even we started buying idols, Diyas, such a mental slavery and dependency on China for our living and other requirements, a country which always backstabbed us, supported our enemy nation Pakistan and its terrorists to kill our civilians and soldiers.

Naxalism in India is created and supported by China. Never supported India on international platform rather opposed and helped terrorizing our soil. They never consider part of North East and J&K as an integral part of India. Still, the laws and structures set by our previous governments created difficult situations and literally mental torture by many bureaucrats and politicians to anyone who wished to start a manufacturing or service industry, Keeping our economy much weaker than China. Thanks to resilience and perseverance of our stalwarts like Tata, Ambani, Aziz Premji, Mahindra and many more who brought glory and confidence in Indians about our capabilities even under adverse conditions.

That’s why PM’s address is vital. He taught us how to convert adversity into opportunity. He clearly indicated that we need to focus on local manufacturers and service providers (Make in India) and stop using Chinese products. More we become self-reliant; more we will become powerful in the world. Economy will be further strengthened, living standards will improve, reduced unemployment and most important, we will focus more on research and development.

We are turning powerful doesn’t mean that we will take control of other nations sovereignty but our culture teaches us to help them with the knowledge, resources, products, services, etc for the betterment of everyone on the planet as we believe in “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”.

On the path of AATMANIRBHAR BHARAT, we have so many challenges to overcome, especially with regard to quality, delivery, service, bureaucracy, political will and stability. PM has already shown his spine to handle it at international level and efforts to make it happen on ground level by announcing big package and changing the mindset by saying “Local ke liye Vocal Bano”, his words and actions are always taken seriously by Indians, recent examples are lighting diyas and Thali bajao at a particular time. More actions will be declared soon.

Lot of measures have been taken by Modi government to reduce control of bureaucracy (Red tapism) resulted in increase in FDI, but it is not adequate to enable quantum jump which PM said in his address. More actions on ease of governance, most of the approvals through online mechanism, lowering interest rates, confidence building measures, creating awareness about the importance of local through various social organisations and NGO. Attracting industries/investment those who wants to shift their base from China.

Quality will also play an important role. “Chalta hai” attitude will not work anymore, whatever we manufacture or provide services, has to be of international quality or else will be difficult to retain even local customers. As PM mentioned, we have to create a local brand which can become global brand, for that we need to have quality in everything, delivery on time and timely service.

We need not forget that we are living in an era of globalization. While ensuring local, we need to respect products and services from friendly countries, we have to fight against enemy nations and not against countries which supports us on various fronts as a friend
