Tag Archives: Recession

It’s a belief that better quality means more money. And the canvassers of this concept, sell their goods at sky high profits. Recession came as a blow to many, including brands and traders. Prices of goods fell, in the form of discounts, as consumers weighed less on their pockets.

The big brands fell flat on their face, when the buyers realized the true value of things around. Do we see regret? Not for too long.

After all this, there would still be people, who will rake up their rates and talk the same lingo again. And the brand followers will end up paying the price they quote.

The question arises then, if quality was measured in terms of money, would it mean that the less affording strata of the society, deserve lousy products? Is it fair of the big companies to play this game?

What say? Express uninhibited! Discuss your opinion! After all the power is in the thought, more than the words.


I went to the supermarket today, to get some food,
Gathering all the gyaan, from my father, I stood
At the Vegetable counter, I saw a sad scene,
There was hardly any stock, many racks were clean.

Of the little I found, ’twas a pitiful sight,
The tomatoes were wounded, the carrots were white,
The potatoes were wrinkled, the cucumbers were sapped,
Looked like the beans, were far too ripe.

What more do I see, even the fruits are dejected,
The worms had mangoes, as the Maazas were protected,
The grapes looked sad, the bananas had holes,
Could it be the beetles, had drilled their cozy homes?

While I was walking back, with my empty Shoulder Bag,
I head some noise, felt like it came from the rag,
From under it there, I heard silent screams,
The rotten Fruits and Veggies were bleeding on their seams.

I stood helpless, while I walked to the Door,
Noticed how they were treated, strewn on the floor,
Seemed like recession, had hit these poor things,
Or were they angry sales girls, who cared for nothing?
