INDIA’S JOURNEY OF SELF RELIANCE
“Our Nation is like a tree of which the original trunk is Swarajya and the branches are Swadeshi and boycott.”
– Sri Bal Gangadhar Tilak.
The key to development of independent India is ‘Atma Nirbharta’. We got independence many years back but still today our Nation is not fully self reliant. As, if anyone asks how? Then the answer lies in the fact that India is still a large importer of many goods and services, and this is what makes us dependent? Looking at the war like conditions being created by China every single day, it is the peak time when INDIA BECOMES AATMANIRBHAR. It is not as difficult as it seems!
One may think that for the past so many years we have been importing goods then, within a span of 2 or 3 years how will it be possible that we become an exporter instead of importers! But as far as India is concerned, its people are concerned, nothing is impossible for us. We have already proved this thing. In the initial stages of corona pandemic India had to import large no. of PPE kits, N 95 masks, etc. But within a few months we have produced them in our own nation in large quantities and not only this, but became a significant exporter of these essential commodities. So there is nothing that cannot be achieved. And if anyone needs a little motivation to do it, then it is here - our 20 soldiers died in the Galwan Valley defending the attack of the Chinese army. Our soldiers fought bravely to protect the land till their last breath and blood. Every one of us must keep in our mind that they were the people of the China from which we have been importing goods. If one thinks logically then war can be fought without actually fighting the war.For past years and in the years to come, our brave soldiers have protected us and our nation without even thinking of themselves and their family. For them Nation comes first before their own lives. So, now we all need to question ourselves, Is it so that only soldiers have the duty to lay their lives for the country? Don't they have a family? Are they not humans just like us? This is the time to repay them for their selfless service for the Nation and its people. It is the peak time that we all boycott all types of Chinese goods. A simple step from our side will help us to bring the Chinese at their knees and will show them that India is a country where not only the militants but its civilians also are equally brave and will never allow any outsider to set foot on its land. So, it becomes necessary to boycott the China for becoming India as ATM NIRBHAR BHARAT.
