Lonely thoughts- Who Needs You?

After my dinner, I just went on a walk in the college road. There was a little downpour a few hours before, so the climate was cold , i went chillax .While walking in a lonely mind ,I got remembered about the speech provided by my chemistry lecturer, he told us that At present , the new generations are searching for the new labeled products from the branded companies leaving out the homemade products  made through self employment. And also ,many things rolled on my mind. The magnificent view of  my college road gave me much enough environment to chew the past memories from my heart. While going a three yard before my hostel, I just saw a old man, who packed his road side shop things and getting ready to depart to his home sadly and with a slight shiver. The things he kept in his petty shop for sell is nothing but the coir bags. I went near to him and stood aside, to hold and lift the heavy sack of bags and made him to hold it on his head. He some how managed to balance the sack on his bal .We both walked along the road talking about current topics that are happening in our locality. While talking, He said about his business. For more than four generations , his family  have been spinning and making coir bags .He also told me that he is  capable of making 57 different types of coir bags by his hand arts.  Loving this art, he taught this art to his sons  too. But now, he itself made his son not to develop this art to his grandson. Because he was tired of seeing the cars passing away near by him without stopping and buying his products. He looked faint as he was fully wetted by previous shower. I asked him about his grandsons. He told happily that they are studying in schools but he was unable to pronounce their school name..I asked him about the profit of his business. He told that once there was a big demand for handmade products as there were no foreign companies to destroy indigenous people skills…but now, it was not the same as the people were attracted by the offers and designs provided by AC showrooms and also people were in kewl of brand names which will not be present in petty shopkeepers so , our business were totally deteriorated. After finishing his pour of agony in running  business, he went off to his home…His talk really poured a kettle full of cold water on my face…Wholesalers buy a commodity on large scale at cheap rate and they sell it part by part in different places at quite higher rates but lower than market value, but farmers cultivate and sell it in roadside just to eat for a couple of time per day….Think about it… .My instinct asked me ,”Why we are not preferring handmade products? ”,”Why we are not buying things in petty shops”, ”What will happen  to farmers selling their fresh vegetables in roadside if everyone prefers reliancefresh , trinethra, etc  for packed vegetables?”,”Does a big brand really need us?”Many questing screwed my mind, But I didn’t find the answer for most of these questions.  Please think about these questions and do the better to the retail sellers and farmers ….petty needs you…
