    I am not going to take economy class girls. Relax….i have taken up this title as this deserves attention from all of us.
    I just got an email from a friend..
    Before 12 months 1 US $ = IND Rs 39
    After 12 months, now 1 $ = IND Rs 52
    Do you think US Economy is booming? No, I am sure all our American ILites would agree to this.
    But Indian Economy is Going Down, sadly most of our Indian ILites are not aware of.
    INDIAN economy is in a crisis. Our country like many other ASIAN countries, is undergoing a severe economic crunch.
    Many INDIAN industries are closing down. The INDIAN economy is in a crisis and if we do not take proper steps to control those, we will be in a critical situation.
    More than 30,000 crore rupees of foreign exchange are being siphoned out of our country on products such as cosmetics, snacks, tea, beverages, etc... which are grown, produced and consumed here.
    A cold drink that costs only 70 / 80 paisa to produce, is sold for Rs.9 and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This is a serious drain on INDIAN economy.
    We have nothing against Multinational companies, but to protect our own interests we request everybody to use INDIAN products only at least for the next two years. With the rise in petrol prices, if we do not do this, the Rupee will devalue further and we will end up paying much more for the same products in the near future.
    We can make a huge difference to the Indian Economy. Yes by following simple steps.
    Yes our economy is in your hands....
    1. Buy only products manufactured by WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.
    2. ENROLL as many people as possible for this cause.....
    Each individual should become a leader for this awareness. This is the only way to save our country from severe economic crisis. You don't need to give-up your lifestyle. You just need to choose an alternate product.

    All categories of products are available from WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.

    Every INDIAN product you buy makes a big difference. It saves INDIA. Let us take a firm decision today.
    BUY INDIAN TO BE INDIAN - We are not against of foreign products.
    WE ARE NOT ANTI-MULTINATIONAL. WE ARE TRYING TO SAVE OUR NATION. EVERY DAY IS A STRUGGLE FOR A REAL FREEDOM. WE ACHIEVED OUR INDEPENDENCE AFTER LOSING MANY LIVES.
    THEY DIED PAINFULLY TO ENSURE THAT WE LIVE PEACEFULLY. THE CURRENT TREND IS VERY THREATENING.
    MULTINATIONALS CALL IT GLOBALIZATION OF INDIAN ECONOMY. FOR INDIANS LIKE YOU AND ME, IT IS RE-COLONIZATION OF INDIA. THE COLONIST'S LEFT INDIA THEN. BUT THIS TIME, THEY WILL MAKE SURE THEY DON'T MAKE ANY MISTAKES.
    WHO WOULD LIKE TO LET A "GOOSE THAT LAYS GOLDEN EGGS" SLIP AWAY?
    PLEASE REMEMBER: POLITICAL FREEDOM IS USELESS WITHOUT ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE
    RUSSIA, S.KOREA, MEXICO - THE LIST IS VERY LONG!! LET US LEARN FROM THEIR EXPERIENCE AND FROM OUR HISTORY. LET US DO THE DUTY OF EVERY TRUE INDIAN.
    FINALLY, IT'S OBVIOUS THAT YOU CAN'T GIVE UP ALL OF THE ITEMS MENTIONED ABOVE. SO GIVE UP AT LEAST ONE ITEM FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY!
    We would be sending useless forwards to our friends daily. Instead, please forward this mail to all your friends to create awareness.
    "LITTLE DROPS MAKE A GREAT OCEAN."
    PLEASE TRY TO BE AN INDIAN.....

    Hey,

    Your objective of saving Indian economy is OK. But the approach probably is not practical. Just imagine to how many people you would be reaching out this way? And what would be percentage of the people responding to shun MNC products? Again how many of the respondents will continue to do so?

    It is Ok to start a philosophy but if you really really want the people to practice so that your objective is met you need to adopt a more practical approach.

    I am sure in our forum there are ladies and people who will have good ideas on your objective but probably to start off a cause like this FB is an ideal forum.

    And probably if you would really like to save Indian economy we need to appeal to FICCI and CII to ask them create jobs by opening their manufacturing unit here in India, yes with FDIs and have domestic and international sales for their products.

    What these guys are doing at present is giving up their share of market, their infrastructure to make the inroads for the MNC, who comes with their own products and siphon out money.

    My point is nowadays honestly you cannot start a swadeshi movement, but surely we can influence the commerce bodies. Yield will be low as these commerce bodies are run by people who obviously would like to enter into a party hosted by Ms. Paris Hilton and hence their sons and daughters must have MONEY, still its worth a try, since your effort will have maximum exposure.

    Also one other thing, we must try and encourage ourselves to be entrepreneurs and create a pool of customers. This will be smaller in scale but slowly if this becomes a snowball then nothing like it.

    Industries are shutting down cause of various factors not only cause Rs is depreciating.

    I like your objective not sure if my other friends would also wish to start something on their own like pickle making, ready to eat meals in vacuum packs and plenty of others.

    thanks

    Hi Dakshayaeni,

    Yes I completely agree with u. It is not about starting a movement. It is about bringing a change in everyones mind. Obviously each and Indian wants Indian Economy to do well. But there is no clear cut approach to this. I think each one of has a part to play in this. I had chosen to spread this awareness on the foreign brands that we have been using for a long time without even realizing this fact :)

    Yes we can try doing this in FB also.

    Thanks for your comments.
