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

To be free is to create and redefine equality so that each one of us has the freedom to pursue our dreams and purpose and turn it into a historical enterprise protecting it from the forces of authoritarianism.

1947ஆம் ஆண்டு ஆகஸ்ட் மாதத்தில் இந்தியாவுக்கு சுதந்திரம் வழங்குவதற்கான சட்ட ரீதியிலான வேலைகள் நடந்து கொண்டிருந்தன
அப்போது மௌண்ட் பேட்டன் நேருவை அழைத்து இந்தியாவிற்கு சுதந்திரம் கொடுக்கப் போகிறோம். அதை எப்படிப் பெற்றுக்கொள்ளப் போகிறீர்கள் என்று கேட்டார்

நேருவுக்கு எதை அடையாளமாக வைத்து சுதந்திரத்தைப் பெறுவது? என்பதில் குழப்பம் ஏற்பட்டது நேரு மூதறிஞர் ராஜாஜியிடம் ஆலோசனை கேட்டார்.

உடனே ராஜாஜி கவலை வேண்டாம் தமிழகத்தில் மன்னர்களிடம் ஆட்சி மாற்றம் ஏற்படும்போது ராஜகுருவாக இருப்பவர்

செங்கோலைப் புதிய மன்னருக்குக் கொடுத்து ஆட்சி மாற்றம் செய்வார். அதைப்போல நாமும் ஒரு செங்கோலைத் தயாரிப்போம். அதை வெள்ளைக்காரர்களிடமிருந்து நமது குருமார்களில் ஒருவர் மூலம் பெற்றுக் கொள்வோம் என்றார்.
நேருவும் அதற்குச் சம்மதம் தெரிவித்தார்.

(1/n) Another reason why I love Sanatan scriptures because these are the only scriptures which tells us to love one's country i.e Bharatha varsha. It also mentions how one is lucky to be born on this land and how even the devtãs wishes to be born on this land.
(2/n) This is from Vishnu puran Part 2 Chapter 3rd...Later chapters also mentions the geographical features of “Bharatha varsha” ImageImage
(3/n) I am luck to be born on this land, I am lucky to have such ancestors....
This motherland is like a heaven to me.
