With the planet turning into a global village – thanks to the internet and growing human population(which is extending the length and breadth of cities),not far are the days when ‘Online Shopping’ would be an absurd term.Yes absurd because by 2030 Shopping would mean ‘Online’ only. Malls may replace to museums to show the future generation what shopping meant few decades back and many be replaced by dwelling towers specially in densely populated Indian sub-continent.
Cash On Delivery schemes have made orthodox Indian buyers bend down to online shopping and that declares the future of shopping would be in the virtual space solely.From electronic gadgets to apparels, to jewelries, to used cars, to online tutorial class services, every product and service has a market online which is increasing with every day passing by.With technology reaching out to the lower earning strata of society in the form of Smart Phone with Internet facility and increasing traffic and jams on roads and decreasing spare time to window-shop physically,browsing online shopping sites would be a part of lifestyle by 2030.The trend is simply in and will make physical shopping a word of history books. By 2030 dictionary meanings of Malls and Departmental Stores may change to a hub of website links of branded products and services. Window Shopping may mean surfing online shopping websites (which is already becoming a trend). The possibilities are quite likely because:
- Online Window Shopping saves time,physical exertion,and embarrassment of being stared by the sales guys inside the glass walls.
- It saves expenses and cuts down on middlemen thereby making the cost of products and services cheaper therefore quality products at cheaper rates.
- Internet , laptops and smart phones the much needed things for Online Surfing are readily available at affordable prices.

The RBI has asked citizens not to use currency notes as garlands as they not only deface the notes but also shorten their lives. Mark of love around the bridegroom’s neck or mark of might and power around politicians’ neck(and there is one politician who truly flaunts the garlands of currency notes 🙂 ) , the garlands indeed deface the value of currency besides shortening its life-span.
Jai Shankar aka Psycho Shankar who is serving 10 years term in one of the 28 cases on him related to ‘rapes and murders’ had managed to elope from a Bangalore prison climbing three 30 feet walls has been caught after 5 days of his run. Some say it was a tussle between the jail management people which let this escape happen and it is also found that out of 22 only 5 jail cameras were operative during the escape. There is a sincere doubt that some jail authorities were involved in the entire episode.A probe is, as expected, on. 🙂
Now,who is responsible for this arrest? Is it the team of cops or is it the common sense of a psycho ? 😀
The Kerela cops attacked an Opposition protester waving a black flag at the Chief Minister of the state,to such an extent that he had to be hospitalized. One of the cops was seen attacking the protester’s private parts even as his other policemen held him tight. The brutal police action has received criticisms even from the Congressmen.
And please remember we are a democracy ! 🙂
Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev says that sages and holymen should avoid being alone with women, including their mothers, daughters and mothers-in-law, as that was the prescription laid down in Hindu scriptures. This came after the arrest of Asaram Bapu in alleged rape case of a minor girl.
Although Baba Ramdev seem to have learnt his lessons during his protest at Ram Leela Maidan when the Sheila Dikshit govt sent cops mid night to crush the growing crowd and Baba ji had to run for his life.He was seen jumping off the stage and also seen escaping the place wearing Salwar Kameez(Indian traditional women attire) to fool the cops.
