One stop destination for all daily need products for the entire family. In the last ten years we have seen how access to the food and other resources have become easy and convenient for all of us. Today when I enter any supermarket like D’Mart or Big Bazaar with a desire to buy some stationery for my daily use, I may exit with handful of vegetables, clothes, groceries and some electronic gadgets. I do not have to roam around from one chowk to another for my needs items like the olden days. This is possible because of the introduction of hypermarkets and supermarkets which is path breaking achievement by the business giants. My wife ensures, we visit supermarkets, a minimum two times in a month to pick everything that we prefer.
Since my choices are not accepted by my family members I just move around in these markets like a luggage carrier with my eyes wide open and concentrating on everything that I can see.
“I was not a god student which means I have not learned things completely from the books I read during my school days. Now today when I visit supermarkets I try to correct myself on things which I was not sure. The names of food items, vegetables or you can say everything that is sold in the supermarkets. There are placards, notices, advertisements, hoardings, labels which signifies and are used to identify the products and their uses. I keep checking them with the objective to memorize the names of these items. I am not ashamed to reveal the fact that even after 10 years frequent picnics inside these malls, I still cannot tell you the English names for all the vegetables, fruits, crockery or anything and everything that is sold inside these markets.
However in this process, I have upgraded by knowledge to some extent. I still have many things to learn and life is all about learning. From day one, when my brain started functioning I ensured whatever I have learned, I shared with my friends.
You can ask my friends and colleagues – they say sir “aapse bohot kuch sikha humne” and I am on cloud nine. HA HA……
