Yesterday, I went to Sunday bazaar of Gulshan e Iqbal near Nipa. At a vegetable stall I asked the rates of pumpkin and I was told 40 per kg. I asked hawker to give me one kg. Meanwhile he was weighing the pumpkin I read the rate list and according to that whole sale rate of pumpkin was Rs. 27 and retailer rate was Rs.31 per kg. When I inquired the hawker about this rate difference he didn’t show any concern and said ‘hamain to 40 per kg he perta hy’.
This was really surprising situation for me that all the people in Sunday market were buying fruits and vegetables without reading the rate list which were displayed on all vegetables stalls. I even couldn’t find any complaint desk or stall in the bazaar.
We always complain about anarchy and corruption in our society but on the other hand we ourselves are not aware of our rights and duties. There is no concept of consumer rights among our masses and if anyone talks about this, people don’t take him seriously.
We can’t expect a big positive change in our society without bringing small changes like this. We have to make difference by broadening our thoughts and taking initiatives against these cheatings. Remember for a major change minor efforts of individuals are important.
