In India we have an occasion almost in daily basis, be it birthdays, anniversaries, rice-eating ceremony, marriage invitations, house-warming you name it and we have it but the problem is who has the time to buy the “Gifts” for these occasions is probably the most important thing. Earlier our parents used to go and buy something from the store which somehow is not possible now. And the saviour turned out to be in this case is “Online Shopping”.
In today’s day and age we all are working be it the man or the woman of the house and luckily in this technology stricken era we all are used to computer, laptop, mobile phones etc. And with Online shopping thing we all are sorted. Just a click and you are ready to place your order. This has become a trend now and the mobility of this shopping has made a mark not only in the younger generation but also in the older generation. Initially it was more popular in the west but for the past few years this trend has caught on in India as well and in a big way.
When it first started only few websites are there for this but now there is various apps you just have to download it and your pick is ready to be grabbed. From dresses to home decor to kitchen appliances to electronics appliances. Few of the websites also gives you a price much lesser that it’s actual market price. And if you’re a member to a particular site then it will be all the more less price for you. They also offer you a return option as well, you just have to package it properly and their delivery boy will be on your door to pick up the parcel for you that is also a big headache earlier because whenever you want to exchange something the store people always creates some fuss over it but now all these things are past.
To sum it up it is a positive trend and all of us are really hooked onto this. But every good thing has come with a flip side as it’s the case with online shopping as well. Sometimes the design and cut and also the fit is not exactly like what we would have thought of and also sometimes there is some disappointment with the colour as well like one shade darker or lighter than the actual thing in the picture so that is there, and then we thought we should stick to visit a store and try out the dresses before buying anything. But these are very small things in compared to the greater things it offers to us. And to top the list is “Time” which is very precious now-a-days. So although it has a flip side but in totality it is making us all the more advanced and now attending any function is all the more fun.
