Vishnu Vardhaan .

Today, I heard the craziest pitch ever.

A man was shouting loudly, "Keep investing Rs. 40000 every six months, with no value whatsoever." ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚

I thought the man was nuts.

Who in the world would keep investing money every six months, when there is no return on investment? ๐Ÿคซ

And yet, that is what we, as consumers, do every single day, don't you think?

Every phone we buy becomes "unmodern" when the 'latest' version comes out, just six months post the earlier version launch.

Not just with phones. With fashion. Shoes. Decor. Laptops. Anything and everything. ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™€

It may have no physical or functional problem, but is considered "obselete", out of fashion or just plain old.

Every six months. ๐Ÿคฎ

This is how we polluted the world.

Filled up landfills and oceans with waste.

But, just look at what has happened now.

We've cut back on almost everything except insurances, essentials and food.

Now, we seriously evaluate whether we need any new purchases.

Our priority is saving for the family.

This has become more important than the latest mobile phone, car or television etc.,

Which is why, someone said, humans are the #virus, corona is the cure.

Agree? ๐Ÿค”

Not sure if this is serious or fun! Bcz if the inference is humans really are the virus, then why even bother to survive?

If there are other inferences out of this, id wait.

Guys, I'm not a scientist here. ๐Ÿ˜ I just mentioned that bcoz of the Corona, we are purchasing only essentials, our spending patterns have changed, we are stopping impulsive purchases.. Unlike earlier. ๐Ÿ˜

Inference is very clear. Human beings are greedy than ever before and have compromised on everything.. From ethics to responsibility towards nature and are eating away earth and natural resources one day at a time, do humans are virus for the earth a d corona is the cure because all viruses (humans) chipke baithe hein and earth is cleaner, greener and beautiful without them. Honestly, the earth doesn't need us and we don't deserve her...

Don't insult the virus ๐Ÿ˜‚! Even they usually evolve (mutate) to turn less dangerous. It's in their own interest to have a process of natural selection that doesn't kill the host. Unlike the evolution of humans and our "civilizations" that doesn't even notice that it's "host", the entire ecosystem we are 100% dependent on to survive, is getting choked.

still no evidence found that the virus will mutate. This understanding of "mutation" is fully bogus. No experimental evidences; only one thing published in a recent Nature paper that ciliated cell might be playing a pivotal role in the entry of SARS-Co-V2. We need real time comparison of the pathogenecity of the disease; which is impossible because of the lockdown.

I couldn't have agreed any less with you Vishnu Vardhaan

I am currently watching "Our Planet" series on #Netflix and facing the harsh realities (they are sinking in much deeper now) on how much damage we have caused to our Earth. Time has come when Nature is taking over whats their own.

Well they provide value for the time we use them, don't they? So it's not really like investing in something with no value. You're not handing out money, waiting for six months without any value, and handing out more. For those six months, you're consuming as much of the value of that appliance as you can.

Ari David Paul

What are you saving to buy? Saving is a means to an end. Itโ€™s great to have emergency funds, but ultimately you earn money to eventually be able to consume things that add value to your life. That cellphone will eventually become obsolete, but it also gives you access to most of human knowledge and media at your fingertips.

No matter what, Impulsive purchasers bring more revenues to businesses whether its before pandemic or in coming new normal.
