On my recent India visit, I had an opportunity to work closely at a family shop where they sell electronic spare parts. It was amazing to see that in today’s world where many of us think “ek rupee mein kuch bhi nahin aata” (you won’t get anything for one rupee), we shell out thousands of rupees just on popcorn and samosa; there exist businesses where people are doing business on just 1 rupee margin. It may not be news to everyone. But, I’m sure many people may find it hard to believe.
It is a humble experience that is a reminder to not just value money and resources around you, but be more mindful of how you spend and use these.
Happy Independence Day!
