India will have to seriously engage with the region and the world, but at the same time strengthen its own domestic industry by streamlining the governance system and go far beyond mere amendments and announcements. Swadeshi does not and should not be interpreted as isolation. M.K. Gandhi s Swadeshi movement and self reliance were two sides of the same coin that would find currency in a globalised world.

Capitalism based on unrestricted industrial growth to feed insatiable crass consumerism became the norm of the laissez faire (free market) Western economic model, which Gandhi criticised in Hind Swaraj. The British colonial model was passed on to the US and was touted as a panacea for economic growth, with technological materialism pitted against dialectal materialism as an inevitable operative instrument. It wasn t, which is why we need Swadeshi economics back.
