 (god alone knows where these 'exchange offers' stop, would they ever ? )

We are taught that in ancient times Barter system was an important mode of commerce in India. One could barter old household goods for new brassware and other kitchen wares. Poor tillers worked day long and in the exchange were given enough grain to keep them going. But those were happier times and going was easy, in any case was not as tough as it has become today duly aggravated by plastic money and so called easy instalment plans. Housewives of yesteryears could buy 'cute' utensils needed or not, in exchange of old clothes. They would go around showing their new found containers as if they have succeeded and superceded all in clinching the biggest deal ever.

Times changed and changed so swiftly that one could hardly keep pace with it without going bonkers and/or bankrupt. Barter system gave way to Exchange System. Bring your old pair of shoes and get a concession of a couple of hundred rupees while buying this strange looking shoes purported to have been made of 'imported' leather. Bring your old goggles,shell out another thousand rupees and join the brigade of latest sunglass wearers who want to see it all and show it all. Old music system,old telephone instrument,old scooter,old refrigerator,old television,old washing machine,old mattress,old car and what have you. Builders readily bought your house and raged it to ground to hastily erect a multi-storeyed housing complex or shopping arcade. Can you imagine where this mad race of exchange offers will take us. Not even 250 years have passed when Britishers invaded India with so tempting and overpowering exchange offers that ultimately 'Bharat' was exchanged for 'India'. Let us see and watch these multi-nationals,put together, I expect them to do a better job than East India Company. The way market forces are shaping up and the way we are lapping up these exchange offers,day is not far off when we will have following exchange offers :
