  • India has the talent.
  • It can make the best products.
  • We need to make our supply chains stronger to become a self-reliant India.

Talent; India has talent, this is absolutely true. Many Indians went to abroad and they did unbelievable things. For example Meerut born surgeon successfully performs double lung transplant on covid-19 patient in the US. Name of the doctor is Dr. Ankit Bharat. From this example we can say that India has talent.

Best products; India can produce best products because it has talent in every field. But there is a need to take out this talent, and show the whole world that India is self-reliant.

Make our supply chain stronger; this is most important thing, that India has need to make our supply chain stronger. If we make our supply chain stronger then the vision of Self-Reliant India will become true.
