It is the seventh-largest country by area and the second-most populous nation in the world with a population of more than 135 Crores.

The Indian sub-continent occupies a major part of the South-east Asia region. It is also called peninsular India as it is surrounded by water bodies on three sides. But, why are we discussing it here? Fret not, this is not Geography or Political Science class, today we have for you a very interesting topic. The talk of the town is Swadeshi Indian Products or Made in India products vs the Foreign products.

As you all know, India is currently undergoing Lockdown 4.0. The novel coronavirus which originally originated in Wuhan, China back in December 2019 is now out breaking rapidly in our country. The Government of India has announced a phased-wise nationwide lockdown in the country to combat this pernicious virus but this prolonged nationwide lockdown has hit hard on the Indian economy. The Government is now trying to unlock India with its Unlock 1.0 plan to bring the economy back on the track. Along with this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is now also focusing more on made in India Products and he has suggested being self-dependent & self-reliant and also initiated a new campaign to promote made in India commodities. 

This new campaign will boost Swadeshi or Made in India products (Wiki Link) and people are going crazy on the internet with the hashtag #VocalForLocal. We can’t resist sharing with you an interesting article on this topic. So, here is a detailed article that lists the Swadeshi or Indian brands and also lists the Foreign brands belonging to the same category/department. We bet you most of your myths will get busted, for example, Indian Motorcycle is an American company and not an Indian brand, and many other instances are there. Stay Tuned till the end of this article and you will come to know about many cool kinds of stuff.
