If today's ruling dispensation somehow seized power on #15August 1947, notwithstanding its cowardly absence from the freedom struggle, what country would it have created? This thread of Golwalkar's thoughts & Organiser (RSS mouthpiece) OpEds offers clues..

The RSS was quite clear that Hindus, Hindu traditions, Hindu culture and Hindu ideas & aspirations are the sole foundation for India.

It didn't even wait for #IndependenceDay to declare its cultural nationalism, publishing this editorial on 14th Aug 1947... Image
Both the RSS (again on 14/08/47) and Golwalkar (in 1966) poured contempt & scorn on the #IndianFlag adopted for the new nation. Their preference was the Bhagwa Dhwaj which apparently was a "national emblem" for "thousands of years"... Image

1) It was the early 1950’s. India had just won its freedom and the economy was shaky.

Upper middle class women were spending valuable foreign exchange on western cosmetics which was draining the country's Forex Reserves.

2) This was disturbing Prime Minister Nehru as the Indian society was in its nascent stage and maintaining Forex was of the utmost importance.

 So, he came up with the idea of starting an Indian cosmetic brand. Image
