Boost Indian toys industry
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for a boost in the Indian toys industry and emphasising the importance of toys in children’s early development. India’s portion of the world toy market is only approximately 1.5 billion dollars, and we import about 80 per cent of toys, thus rupee carols are in these.
Many gaming concepts promote violence or induce psychological stress, and many online or digital games present on the market are not currently Indian concepts. According to the prime minister, if a child’s first school is a family, the first book and friends are these toys. Toys are the initial means of communication between children and society.
There is another important part of toys that everyone should be aware of and take steps to recognise Indian toys worldwide. It would also be a good move toward India being self-sufficient.
