Q. What do you hope to accomplish as a social worker?
Every task whether it is small or big is incomplete without a goal. Before heading for a work, we all set our aim and mission. And being a social worker, my aim is to or I want to work in the direction of girl education. In country like India, where there is gender inequality, girls are considered burden on family and they are not allowed to get primary education like boys. To remove the social stigmas, educating every girl child is necessary so that they will be able to read and write and become independent. If the female of family is educated, I’m sure half of the social issues will not take place. Thus, with my social work, I would encourage everyone to move forward to work in this direction so that we can save our nation.
Q . As we can see Ecommerce industry is growing at a fast pace. Being an owner of a multi brand showroom, how will you see the survival rate in coming years of showroom owners?
Yes, it is true that people are taking interest in online shopping nowadays as it is convenient and time saving. They can shop from the comfort of their home and avail easy return from the doorstep. But I have seen that people are busy in buying branded items like watches, jeans, cosmetics, stationery etc. through online mode. There are many clothing items that are still buy offline by the customer. Take an example of wedding shopping, people don’t buy bridal lehangas and embroidery suits online as the variety and quality of fiber can’t be judged online. So no doubt ecommerce industry has spread its wings but survival rate for multi brand showrooms are not less and their charm will not fade away.
