1st March 2021, Pertaining to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mission of “Vocal For Local”, the Government of India, has taken a grand initiative to launch ‘India Toy Fair 2021’. The Hon’ble PM of India has, from time to time, mentioned his vision of turning India into a self-sufficient and self-dependant country! This vision comes under the Atma-Nirbhar Bharat. He wishes to achieve this vision by 2022 to mark 75 years of India’s Independence.
Making a new India, culminating traditions but with a Modern Outlook
India’s industries with local artisans are a way of realising this great dream! India’s Toy Industry is also a crucial one! The toys from the Indian artisans have the capability of impressing everyone across the globe! Therefore, keeping the immense capabilities in mind, Government of India has started a ‘Toycathon’, i.e., an online hackathon for Innovation in the toy and game industry. The toys have to showcase the Indian culture, art , history, mythology and civilization all together!
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated this First Virtual Toy Fair. This was done on 27th February at 11 am.
Toys can be an excellent medium to further the spirit of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’PM Narendra Modi quotes this during the Inauguration ceremony!
It is being held from 27th February to 2nd March, 2021.
