Two interesting things happened today as we create this blog - and thankfully completely unrelated (or are they);
1. President Obama mentioned in his speeches that India needed to open up and give opportunities to American companies to operate in India and the NDTV reporter impatiently equated that reference to retail and again stated the fact that the entry of the retail giants is going to mean the end of "mom & pop" stores.
2. My wife was planning to gift a DVD player and we walked into a Croma store to buy a SONY DVD can came out with Croma DVD - I smiled when the sales girl explained to us that "because we do not advertise we are able to give you better or same quality product for a lower value". My thoughts are with the brand manager of SONY.
