In today world of globalization.. Is the concept of using Indian product hold its value.
Is globalization helping Indian economy or hammering its growth. Should we adopt the idea of Swadeshi Product or its not required.
It was very difficult for me to come up to this but it does no matter to me whether I buy an Indian Product or a prodduct from an MNC.....
Today the economies of world are connected .What if same principle is applied by people from Europ and USA and they say that we wont buy INDIAN Products..
I see this an oppurtunity for growth........The best example i can mention is TATA....I consider TATA group as a role model...The ethics they follow and the way they go about things is something that we should appreciate....and Few days ago TATA acquired JLR and what if people decide that since its acquired by an Indian company we wont buy any JLR car!!!
I am sure in days to come the same companies which are MNC 'swill be acquired by Indian companies
For me World is one...ALL HUMANS are one....

Well, being an India I feel survival of an Indian without using any foreign products is impossible. I was just going through the comments aded int his forum and realized one thing... everyone is an Indian at heart and wants to really take tehir country to a new height but the efforts which are needed are missing somewhere.
I am sure that the content of this comment may be viewed as objectionable by most of those who read it but I still want to discuss what I feel.
When we talk about Boycotting foreign goods and usng only Swadeshi products have we ever thought about its feasibility. Just by providing a list of products of daily needs like tooth paste, soap, clothes etc can not actually put a stop to our dependency of foreign made products. It is not just dependence but also our competence. Indians are extremely intellegent but have they been able to design even one computer without importing software, or other things. How amny of you who are reading this mail are planning to resign from your MNC's as a gesture of loyalty towards your country, how many of you can stop using Rolex, Tag Heur and switch to HMT watches, how many of you will take an oath not to use mobile phones manufactured in other countries, how many of you can pledge not to fly in an aeroplane built by a foreign company and ..... There is simply no end to it. If we raise topics of such importance we should be cautious while expressing our views as what we speak is what we are. If we just say we must boycott then we must be able to boycott every thing and in true spirit else I would consider that we are hypocrites. Why can we not first learn our national language start a forum in hindi and then think of achieveing bigger goals towards our national pride.
What is important is not what we want to be but what we are doing to become what we want to be...
Sorry if I have hurt anyone's emotions, taht was not my intention :-(
I agree to what you said but my understanding of boycotting MNC product is not to stop using it. Since childhood I have been using Lux soap but recently since some 2-3 years I have started using Santoor. I always used Ponds Cold cream but this time I thought to give a try to Himalays cold cream and I found it to be really good.
Point is we Indians don’t even give a try to Indian products because we never get to see its promos. It’s highly impossible to stop using MNC products but it’s not so difficult to at least give a try to Indian Brands which gives you quality.
At least I can say about myself that wherever possible I have started using Indian products. Soap, Shampoo, toothpaste, Toothbrush, salt, chips, icecream......etc etc. I still could not get alternative for Washing soap, chocolates (amul is not easily available), jeans (I don’t get the latest one in Indian brands). But every time whenever I go to but something I make an honest attempt to comeback with all Indian products.
Only this honest attempt is required from all of us. It is not possible for a country to be able to manufacture or grow everything under the sun and so this dependency will always be there. But when you have an option to help your brother or a stranger, I am sure you will first opt to help your brother though you may be sure that you won’t get anything in return from him and that stranger may give you whatever you want.
It is alwyas nice to get a prompt reply to your thoughts. Am glad that you spared time to go though my comment. First of all I would liek to clarify that I am not one against India, I am an Indian and I questioned the sincerity in efforts made by people just to provoke them and instill them with a spirit to take the country to new heights. But I really do not feel taht using santoor soap or searching for Amul chocolates is a way to prove one's strong ties to Indianness.
It has to come from within...
"It sleeps deep within us but it must come out, feelings alone don't make a difference, action does". These were the first lines I got to read about Sankalp.
Personally speaking, I feel this is a looped issue (if we try to boycott all MNCs, then we will have large-scale unemployment to deal with and many other issues). So, its really difficult to decide what to do on a very large scale. But we have to start somewhere, and that can be by starting to use Indian Products. And since this is just the beginning, one cannot call them hypocrats, for using a few other products as well.
