The slogan “Vocal for Local” has become the most trending saying in the coming few months. It is nothing but an expansion of the Swadeshi Movement idea conceived by Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, and some great freedom fighters of the country.

The Swadeshi Movement was called for the use of locally-made products in the early 1900s. The campaign lasted for some years before Economic Liberalisation began in the wake of the 1991 economic crisis, which led to a steady rise in FDI with the entry of global brands into the country.

The recent hashtag gliding around our imagination of a modern and national life of commerce and business in India is #VocalForLocal in the era of COVID. 

Go local. Trust locally. Go for a self-sufficient and self-reliant India. Make-in-India. Believe in Made-in-India and put your buying power into products and services that are made locally. These statements are the prevailing the most in the current scenario of our nation.
