Modern Trades implications on Electronics Markets…
(A short and sad revival of memories on a sleepless night).
It is three am in the morning today and I am not being able to sleep as an old experiential thought of emotional solitude (materialistic though) is killing me.
So, I have decided upon scribbling something in case it eases any reader of my blog by chance if he or she would ever be disturbed and concerned about a similar thought of utter-nuisance on a sleepless night.
Though, viewers discretion is recommended as, this non sense of mine would not relieve anyone else maybe but would satisfy my greed, lust of self- expression and hunger to write.
“There are times when a Person has to distinguish and discriminate between choices to make.”
Sadly, the above mentioned phrase of mine or any choice does no longer exist or is a myth today or in our recent times.
Even sadly, one has to mention that the luxury of acquiring a new electronic product in present times does not imply the greatness of value as it did earlier.
Let me explain, in the simplest of expressions and protocol procedures possible like something I have been wondering and realizing about on this sleepless-night as already expressed.
Just an excuse in between as I have used the word “realization” in place of a thought or an idea this night because I have also heard that “realization” is the only figment of imagination that is real.
I suppose I have to be audacious on using the mentioned term because it is attached to my belief system now.
Now, coming to in my short topic of feeling or the reason for the same as in why modernization of trade is unfriendly
In certain ways as per my personal thoughts is as follows-
A hypothetical situation or fictional time:
Once upon a time,
Rather when I was really young…i.e. most children born during the late sixties, seventies, eighties and even nineties.
Children and youngsters accompanied
With folks, friends or sometimes family members (happily) would walk into an electronic store and proudly!
Proudly because they carried a sense of pre-conceived ownership that the desired electronic merchandise they have come for is theirs since purchase and would proudly again carry the same home in some time. Regardless, of the fact that they would carry the item in a Jonga Jeep, a Taxi, an Ambassador or in a bullock cart.
It was a matter of sentiment that who would own the first piece of luxury item at home so, that villages and districts of neighbours’ would gather to see the item or programs on it and it would be as-
“Neighbours’ envy and owners pride”.
For, those were the days when more the advanced the device and the greater the status of the household.
Today, I am so disgusted with the fact that if I want to buy a music system, a television, an air-conditioner or any electronic product I, have to first get in touch with the modes of sophisticated mediums of purchase or the points of sales. Outlets like exclusive showrooms, even online-avenues to name a few, etc.
First, I must choose an item.
I am told on demand that I cannot take it home as it is merely a show-piece.
Then, an order is placed which comes from the warehouse and are comfortably told we needn’t worry during the billing as the Customer Service department would inform the logistics and warehouse in no time to deliver the item and the after-Sales support system is almost like the life insurance of a human being.
We know what happens in most cases after that POS and credit-transaction however, frustration is shared with an agony- Aunt and Uncle like you.
I am greatly indebted to you dear reader for bearing with my zeal of arrogant excitement.
Though, my innocence about the purchase of a modern trade product is lost.
I warn you and wish you patient success and all the best!
