DEALING WITH ENEMIES

I do not think that dealing with enemies differ from sleeping with enemies. Have you slept with an enemy? Then you might know the difference. Perhaps Sleeping with enemies can be considered as a method to deal with enemies.

How do you really learn to deal with enemies?

How do you identify enemies?

What facets and in what forms they appear in this world we live?

How one can easily take note of the enemies within enemies or enemies outside to known enemies, enemies known as peace brokers?

They may appear in any of the popular forms or in a form you can’t even imagine, right?

Sometimes you face sudden attacks of new enemies, not identified earlier by any of the formal or lawful units. 

One of the vessels (apparently not empty but filled with oil) with about eight Sri Lankans (according to print media) was high jacked about couple of days ago. Who were these hijackers? What category they belong to; Enemies of development of local or global economy, Victims of world poverty or result of wonder of development of world economy?  Result of judicially or fairlydivisioned resourcesof world?

Was there no internal security alert system within the border, that the vessel was hijacked?

No coastal security system implemented?

What was the reason that the chiefs of the vessel couldn’t turn it back to another destination when the threat was first felt? No such mechanism in the system of naval trading?

Any how, can the relevant authority provide us reasons as to why they were not aware of such threats within their border of control? Was it the first time you heard about such a group?

How did the group receive information about the vessel leading towards their route?

What strategies required to prevent such situations in the future?
According to today’s news papers, firing / attacking the vessel was stopped due to the intervention of the president of our country. 

Is there no international organization to take immediate action against the group or to stop that and help them to escape from the place for their survival? According to what i felt, they are well equipped/armed, right? Yes, it is true that is something that the two of the affected parties must solve independently. So, is it a matter between Somalia and Sri Lanka, nothing to do with international community?

Are the prices of oil raised by the OPECor planning to raise the prices? One of the reasons to hijack the vessel full of oil (?), keep more stock? Is the group a normal group consists of thieves or any clue of terrorists?

Alright then, the directly affected group (members of the vessel) the two countries have no choice other than trying to deal with this situation independently. in a way it is so good you know , you learn to handle things independently without getting it spoiled unnecessarily.

Perhaps, later on, when the ship and the members are rescued without or with little or big damages they may appear in the seen. That is how the things happened in the past. When the relevant organizations setup to address what ever issue existing fails or not affective they appear later to punish the problem solvers. The international organization, relevant may appear lending their hand take actions to implement a system, international courts , judiciary system perhaps to punish not the hijackers but the groups who rescued the vessel, within Somalia or in Sri Lanka, in addition to the courts system to be forcefully (our admin doesn’t want such a system within the country) implemented within the geographical limit of Sri Lanka.

Even though you have a better internal mechanism to establish law and order, peace and harmony within ‘a country’ or within self’,dealing with enemies is absolutely difficult especially when you find the mechanisms of your enemies are stronger or effective than your mechanisms.  

According to what i read recently and understood (interview with DiyuGunasekara, aththa, 05/03/2017) New Chief Minister (after Jaya Lalitha) of (South) India wants our Tamil People to separate from mass community, from the majority, live in a separate geographical area as a minority.  And same is a expectation of Tamil diaspora and of RLTT (12, 000 - rehabilitated former LTTE carders) and i see there are groups to continue the original expectations and objectives of the terror group the LTTE though you find the group is systematically eliminated using a mechanism match to the nature of the issue also considering the geographical unifications, threat levels of the situation / issue but it was not a mechanism totally different to the mechanisms so far used around the world now and then. 

World is aware that the long suffered issue is physically over within the geographical limitations of the country. Perhaps one can argue that the shadows of the issue still exist not only around globe but also within the country considering how the current government and some react to the suggestions of UNCHR. I see some logic in such arguments. Why? the traumas , fears of the issue cannot be forgotten totally because some of the organizations as mentioned above, and mindsets of some local and international communities, constantly spreading massages, reminders across globe and to the local and international Tamil community; the armies, security forces of Sri Lanka are the enemies of the Local Tamil People and it was not the LTTE who took every action to not to safe guard them but to use their own people not only as human shields but also as carders to achieve their objectives, tying a suicide pill around their necks forcefully. Were they given a choice to stay with their parents, families without joining the LTTE orbecoming a member of the LTTE?

Were the parents given a choice to keep their young children without sending them to become soldiers of the group?

Have you forgotten the Ladies who joined the group, were they not taken forcefully to join the group?

Now there is no such fear in this country.  According to some ending such an issue is a crime.

The members of RLTT say that they want to join the political arena in order to have a better life though the former government was provided them some assistance to ‘earn a living’, financial aid and training. I like to ask them, were you and your families financially looked after by your then leader, Mister Piribaharan?
What if you are still a member of LTTE, can you imagine of the life you will or can possibly spend?  Can you live with no fear of life if you are still a member of LTTE? Remember your leader didn’t want you all to surrender but die as soon as you get caught.
What human right did your leader use, when tying a suicide pill around your neck brothers? The members of LTTE were not given a chance to get marry, have children etc. you were morally killed my friends. Now you have no such issues thanks to the mechanisms used to solve the problem. Why cannot you all look at the issue that way?

Think of the suggestions of Geneva and what other groups trying to convince or take every effort to prove (some how) are they supporting peace and harmony process of the country or disporting, trying to separate or unite each other?
Why repeatedly saying or trying to convince something that is not totally supporting in order to maintain peace and harmony of people (every nation) of the country.

If the UNCHE keep on saying through their reports and suggestions that we must have a international judiciary system , courts system within the country in order to punish our war heroes , what human right they are trying to protect, the rights of terrorism group spoiled the lives of every human being of the country and broke the sole right to live peacefully for more than three decades and of those who still expect survival of such groups, practicing their theories in a different way compared to original ?

If UNCHR and supporting agencies do not let us live peacefully forgetting the wounds of the past situation will remain unchanged.

How many times you spoke to the leaders of the LTTE effectively?

Why didn’t you (UNCHR) think of punishing them for breaking the human rights publicly before the eyes of the world, capturing them when the problem was at its peak? Why you waited until we solve the problem totally with no bad intensions within.

The President of the country has told and promised to his people that he won’t let any international courts system to enter into this country or there won’t be such systems practicing in the country in the future. But according to what i heard, the UNCHR is not aware of such a procedure or of such decisions taken by the president. Am i incorrect?

We are an independent country because the country is not a colony anymore. And there is no LTTE group physically exists in the country (since 2009). And 04th February was declared as Independence Day of the country. (1948 onwards) why cannot we have an independent internal admin system where others do not interfere directly or indirectly?

Why cannot you all live peacefully with peace of mind leaving our people alone and letting them live peacefully?Why you want to line them against a legal forces that brought them peace lawfully not terrorstrategically.

Aha, the groups who are fighting against terror groups do not consider as ‘peace makers’. It is a brilliant way to support human rights. Is the popular human rights organization playing a double game? On one hand they say they represent ‘peace and are against terrorism and protect human rights and on the other hand when a country managed to eliminate terrorism from their country, the organization take every action to punish the parties who sacrificed their lives and time to bring peace into every mind of every citizen of the country.

According to what i feel, dealing with the terror group was not that difficult for the country, for the forces plus the then admin. What is difficult now is to protect our people’s minds from such harmful attacks of the mentioned parties that do not , did not totally aware of the level of the chronic condition we suffered from, or the severeness of the wound, LTTE for decades. 

Kindly, let us live peacefully. Do not try inject any poisons into the physiques and minds of our people saying you expect them to punish our heroes who supported and sacrificed their lives and time to maintain global peace not only in the sub continent we belong to or within the South Asian territory.

You know how harmful the group was and what damage they done not only materially but also emotionally. 

And Dear Mister Sharma, Peace was the sole POLITICAL SOLUTION that the entire country was seeking for, the people were expecting from local admin system. And we all wanted international communities,global support systems to support us without spoiling our independent agendas.  If you are supporting and expects UNITY within our country, why propose them to live separate administerially and geographically from each other? Why Tamil and other nations cannot live together without thinking of separating from each other geographically or otherwise, supportingthe system already established, implemented or a better system to be implemented, constitutionally for example that affect every single citizen of the country to live with no Hassel, mixed with each other?

By suggesting to establish a separate admin and geographical or to merge Northern and Eastern part of the country, what you are doing is ‘ help achieving the objectives of the LTTE in a different way. The LTTE used strategies that no world was accepted to achieve their main objective; dream of ELAM and to achieve the same objectives, diaspora and other groups, international agencies using the strategies written and explained, described in the books of human rights, international laws. If then governments, Sri Lankans wanted them, the LTTE to have what they expected initially, ELAM (separate land) they would have given it to them without going into any humanitarian wars. 

Dear Diaspora, footpath ikes to request you to come and live in the country. And i am sure that we can manage with the facilities we own though you may fear of lossing the luxaries you embrace staying outside to your country.   


Wish you all peace of mind.

Who wanted to send Tiger Mark Caps to England ????????????????

To whom?, 

Thinking of what?

You thought of sending those caps or hats to Queen Elizabeth II thinking of getting her majesty's support? You should have sent a few to Geneva and to those who expect the Forces of Sri Lanka hang till death, buddies?

What does the incident happened revel?

Is the LTTE a banned group in England? What freedom they have in England? Knowing the sizes of the threat can any organization consider the group as a group that has the right / freedom to engage in any activities as they please to broaden or to widen the network buried in Sri Lanka, officially

Now as a citizen of Sri Lanka, i believe that Geneva should re-think of the Suggestions that they have Documented against Sri Lankan forces etc. And i like to ask the official members of the relevant organization to read and study HISTORIES of each and every WAR that the world communities faced through out  history and you may begin to suggest things for all who actively participated, engaged in war activities in the past aiming at what ever reason, though every activity wasn't organized against any terrorism groups and do not miss a single page of history of world Wars, popularly known as WWI, WWII and every other activity took place aiming at what ever reason, in any of the continent , territory and  after finishing that kindly come to Sri Lanka last with your suggestions and do not forget to have a separate sheet of suggestions for the LTTE policy makers and for the Leaders :) no more and for who ever (you may aware of them no?) successfully planned things such as sending or distributing tiger mark caps.

And at least for killing people (civilians) who worked at the Bank of Ceylon 40 years back and for damaging the building , the incident is equal to damaging the economy of the country. kindly keep that in your mind before documenting the suggestions, sirs and madame. 

And America, if you think that the Bank of Ceylon incident and the humanitarian damage done to the country bombing the building without thinking of the civilians inside (both workers and the customers) is smaller when compared with the incident happened in 9 / 11 you may support the Geneva Suggestions and their plans. According to what i read so far, the current President Trump administration is fully and totally against terrorism. i as a citizen of this Island, kindly request the President of United States to analyze the entire period and the levels of sufferings , traumas, sighs and tears of every single citizen of the country due to the the terror activities of LTTE. And honorable President if you think that any armies , forces (of any country of any region) who try rescue their citizens from terror activities shroud be hanged till death or severely punished how do you suggest to punish the groups such as LTTE for crimes they have INTENTIONALLY    done?  

And sir, if you could kindly list any of the wars that shed no blood in the battle fields of past, kindly let entire world know, including the International Human Rights Organization. 

Thank you for reading.

Turn onn and TURN OFF duties of electricity Board, private or public.



Dear Responsible of Ceylon Electricity Board

I do not know what time you turn on and turn off Street Lamps' at public places / urban or otherwise. 

i do not know whether you have decided to keep the street lamps on all day long, day and night for a change. .There is a reason for me to begin my essay that way. 

About few months back,(last year) in the middle of the day (not in the middle of the night) , very before the Rail Way Station , Fort, i noticed that the streets lamps were on and i was wondering why no one has noticed it specially because it is a public place where you find not only ordinary citizens but also most of other government servants, workers of country go passing this place towards their work places.   

And

About few days back, i think about couple of days after the Independence Day, i noticed that the Street Lamps along the main road were on and it is little surprise to note that the place was near the very famous Town Hall , Vihara Maha Devi Gardens. Time was exactly around 12.30pm. i asked the person who sat before me, in the bus. 

And

Today, i was walking along the road, passing the Bridges and the tank, towards the hospital, Jayawardenapura, i happen to notice the same, some of the streets lamps unfortunately were on and i guess time was past two o clock. 

i wonder weather you have sent any workers of electricity services home and now face 'lack of workers to full fill duties essential.

And kindly note that that was not, i noticed same situation at various places like the street lamps near where my sister and i stay. unfortunately i didn't take any notes of all the places and the time that the street lamps were carelessly on without switching them off on time.

who should take the responsibility of that duty?

what decision you have so far taken in order to save' Electricity Resources of the Country? 

We cannot pay or compensate for what you are wasting. You cannot pick the option of 'power cut' since you take no action to save electricity.

Turn off unnecessary lights' this is the advice we hear most the time, but the responsible authorities do not follow what they say to others. please remember that there is less signs of rain , if you do not think of informing all private or public limited about this, entire country will be in trouble and in dark.

why rice prices rise ?

i was wondering whether it is a question ( why rice prices rise) i must ask from the government or from the traders, Mill Owners, rice importers?  i thought it is a question that not only me but also entire 'my class' and 'other class' people must ask from this government. 

what is this my class, you may wonder? that is the class that every politician likes to use specially during an election campaigns. api kana heti lipaa danee. (only the stove / hearth knows how we eat.) this is the famous quote the new government used during their election campaigns with  a photograph of a woman with a child with sorrow faces. At that time they knew how we ate, what we ate for our breakfast, lunch and for our supper. But unfortunately now they know nothing about how we eat it seems. 

there was a long drought, yes we admit. most of our farmers couldn't cultivate their paddy lands due to drought. such situations arises and not unknown to this country or to this region. But can a government let their people starve because of such reasons? why we need a government if we cannot find solutions to address such issues? 

what are the coping mechanisms / strategies that a government can follow during such situations? i remember listening to news one evening ,about the yield gathered last Maha season. According to the news last (maha) season was one of the best seasons that our farmers collected better yield. according to the news the yield was enough to cover entire rice need of our people and my question is what happen to the 'excess yield'?  STORED or IMPORTED? 

Don't you have any adequate amount of paddy at the public government rice store'. i remember you boasting about the number of kilos you bought from the local farmers. all used? 

last time i remember you blaming former government for not using the paddy at the government store saying those are not eatable and i ordered them to use as birds' feed ('mama ewa kurullanta daanda kiwwa') 
Alas! now the store is empty (?) now we pay high prices, ranging from 98 ( red and white raw),100, 120 ,175 ( Basmati, keeri punni samba etc, i observed prices at few places. ) for a kilo of rice, why? 

About couple of days ago my sister visited sathosa to buy some kilo of rice but there were only keeri samba available and the price of a kilo of rice, according to my sister Rs. 120/= and no other types available at that time she visited the outlet, why, SOLD? 

If that is the reason, alright. But prices? NOT SATISFACTORY at all.  

Perhaps, the solutions, answers for the questions such as what can be done during such situations, i guess can be found in the job profile, duty profile of our finance minister, you must consult him for advice. 

when writing the 'budget' why didn't you include some strategies to address 'drought no rice' situations? 

we need rice for an affordable price. you cannot blame drought for high prices? 

As you all know 'MAN POWER of our class people wasting their time without contributing their labour. i am wondering how their families find rice, bread or cake for their breakfasts , lunches and for suffer suppers? 

'labour is power', don't try use them, only when you need them. you used them to hold power, get power, memorize your election campaigns, what promises you gave them? we can very well remember dear masters, ministers, don't let them waste their power, labour power, kindly give them a better place. try secure their positions, don't forget you are there for a shorter period when next government comes, you may lose your big positions. and that is the tradition so far followed. did you think of changing that tradition? NO. you followed the exact tradition and appointed a new chairman and directors, new workers (good, no objection) let them remember what you do until they departure this world not as something sorrowful but as something useful and important. take good divisions to safe guard their jobs. 

Never ever degrade labour power and never ever think or take 'hunger or starvation' as something silly or unimportant, take such things for grant. 

You mustn't forget history, 'hunger is power', 'poverty is powerful' and both hunger and poverty very powerful and rebellious than you can ever imagine.

The Merchants of Parliaments; Now and then.

The Merchant of Venice, even today, according to my own justification, is one of the famous merchants of the world not only in literary, fictional  world but also in real (?) world. Though you find Iban Batuta, the world famous , Portuguese, Dutch traders who set foot on this soil for trading purposes because of cinnamon or because of pepper or TEA, coffee, rubber, the merchant of Venice  is a merchant every person aware of. 

what is the meaning of the term merchant? the term is no foreign to the trade world but what about to the world of politics? for the politicians, is it a new term or a term that produces no meaning or no sense for them or  is it only a term, enhance a decision that brings some cash into their wallets?

Anyways, i found following description on internet  

  1. a person or company involved in wholesale trade, especially one dealing with foreign countries or supplying goods to a particular 


i wonder, what right a person engages in active politics has, to sell any property belongs to the people of any community, country? And what constitution supports or describes such decisions of them, the constitution that Madame CBK tried to introduce in 2000 or the constitution that Prime Minister is trying to introduce?  

According to madame CBK what Ranil (she used his name) is trying to introduce is a copy of what she was trying to introduce in 2000 (news papers reported) i have a question and a request for every sirs' and madames' of current politics , previous or earlier , former political world, kindly educate our people, is it a constitution solely prepared by the Prime Minister of the country or a product prepared by the 'aluth aanduwa' (yaha palanaya) entire group? 

i do not know whether the prime minister already responded to her statement or not.

if not, it is an issue for us, the people of the country because we reject and do not accept any government, those who take decisions individually or privately without informing the rest of the group called 'government'. and that is not a good sign or a method of administration or of so called 'good governance' 

let foot path focus again on the subject of the day, forgetting the 'constitution and the ways of taking decision by the members of the term (aanduwa)  for the moment.

According to what i read about couple of days ago, the government has already decided to lease out the Hambantota Port to the 'china Merchants'. (refer Rivira news Paper for more information)

How much profit ( predictable) you loose within a period of two years, perhaps our dear minister of finance can answer my question. Does it exceed the amount you have to pay as the loan (monthly or annually) don't just say 'yes', we need clarifications and proof to justify your answer. 

Also kindly answer, who will take care of the workers ( Hambantota Port), the real partners of the property, the Chinese Merchants?

By the way, any 'Man Power workers' involved in providing service loosing jobs as a result of the decision taken?

And what about the 194 Ceylon Electricity Board, workers who lost their jobs or sent home on 2016 / 12/ 31, did they receive an answer as promised by the relevant ' Minister'?

According to the information gathered personally by me, ( 03 / 01 / 2017) 165 workers who were not working or providing their service earlier or not working partners of the ministry , entity have received permanent job opportunities and are appointed on 03 / 01 / 2017 as meter readers, though the said number of workers (194) have experiences as ' meter readers' .
They were sent home, using their  own policy justifications , estimations though some of them were not completed  180 days (i will note the date to prove until what date, asap), also there are other categories of workers (i.e.clerks) who managed to secure their jobs. my question is why you couldn't secure the jobs of the said number of workers? Don't you think that previous qualifications of a worker is no use and when appointing new workers you can ignore the 'experienced'?

labour is power and is power of any man or a woman , no authority can devalue their 'power', i believe. 

China , i believe is not a new comer, or a fresh merchant who entered into the global trade net work or world trade network and is not at all a strange Merchant or a cultural partner to our country or to this part of the world. r friendly partner. 

Chinese were very famous traders, merchants even since pre and post medieval period.who doesn't like their ceramics for example? what city you can name, where you find no single shop that sells 'Chinese productions', Constantinople, London, New York ?  

i believe that is something that shows their 'talent and skill in trade'. BUT can you think of any Chinese properties sold to other people / countries for their survival, survival of the emperors? 

what if in five years time, government to be elected decide to sell the moragaha kanda project saying that 'cannot pay loans taken'?
do you think that it is the way to handle or manage what ever project implemented or established by former or previous governments?

selling any public property /s; is it an ability of a government elected or selected by the people of a country?

what financial management skill / ability is that, kindly educate us?

There are enough of information available for anyone who is seeking information on 'Trade Agreements made between foreign traders / merchants , bureaucratic partners, countries and kings of SL and Prime Ministers , Presidents, now and then. specially the trade agreements made between kings who ruled this country during 'the colonial period' ( 1505 - 1948) and foreign rulers and also agreementsmade after  gained independence. 

why we couldn't protect ' the kingdoms' ( Kandyan for instance) of yester years was one of the reasons, the trade agreements made between the kings then of the kingdom s, i.e. especially when seeking assistance , help from ' Dutch' in order to sent away the Portuguese (Inguru Deela Miris geneema,exchanging inguru with chilly, this is a famous saying arose and joined language practice of locals due to 'the content of the agreement, sentences enclosed, what was promised to exchange between involved parties. we lost coastal areas due to that agreement, remember?

And i know that there are ways to answer ' why and how' questions of people of this country. whether it is paper / sugar or steel , port or air ports every single property is a property of this country, of its people and you have the responsibility not just by oaths or signatures, to protect what we own. 

According to what i read, the former government was planned / scheduled to pay back the loan taken to implement the Harbour , Hambantota within ten years. Perhaps, the new government is unaware of the procedures followed by the former government or the reason for that probably is 'ignorance' , lack of interest towards learning or studying the mechanisms used or followed by the former government. or else is it because of any 'taking revenge' mechanisms the government is fond of using, following? 

sorry to hurt, what i am doing is 'questioning'? your responsibility is to answer because i represent not the government but the 'people' of this country and i am a citizen. 

this is to be discussed further ...........

Sachets

Sachets; a revolutionary invention.  i must note. i like to rate this 'sachets' concept of current world as something innovative though it is not something that modern world is innovated or founded. The concept or the idea of the ' sachets' has a long history but the idea was used for different purposes. the sachets that i talk about today through my essay is something 'that we use for commercial purposes. So the modern world is using the modern version of 'the ancient concept; 'sachet' as a way of earning good profit and as 'entrepreneurial coping strategy.    

i do not know who invented ' sachets' or who introduced it to the current world we live, initially. yet i know that it is a revolutionary invention for this part of the world we live or any part of the world we live.

Sachets are a good friend in need, i must say. 

Sachets is a good coping strategy for any household struggling to look after their day today needs and for who need more money for other household needs 'children's education for example other than for 'daily necessities.  But the truth is that no family can recycle their needs or cut and chop their actual needs or what they humanly required. 

Therefore i can say that people of my class or even of middle class select the option of 'Sachets' for various reasons and as a friend in need or for their commercial or financial salvation.  

'work out your own salvation'. i saw this written on a three wheeler couple of days ago. sachets is one of the good options that people can think of temporary strategy or even as a strategy that they can use through out year specially when they depend on 'days pays' , daily wage. And even for those who depend on 'monthly salaries or wages is something that  gives them peace of mind. 

i googled the meaning to know the literal meaning of the term. Here is what i found , let me note it for your perusal.  

sachet
ˈsaʃeɪ/
noun
plural noun: sachets
  1. 1.
    BRITISH

    a small sealed bag or packet containing a small quantity of something.
    "a sachet of sugar"
  2. 2.
    a small bag containing dried scented material such as lavender, used to scent clothes.


i do not know about the world outside to our country. whether they highly prefer this sort of strategy or whether the strategy available or sachets available in European markets. Also i do not know the percentages like or dislike the concept; sachets. But i can assume that people in this part of the world we live , very much fond of sachets for very many reasons. i can think of many reasons because i am one of the persons who have become a sachet lover. 

Aha! sachets of Tea, sugar, Milk Powder, Shampoos, coconuts (Powder) you get them in various shapes and sizes, colour codes, in shining laminating type handy packs to attract the customers. 

i see the entrepreneurs / manufactures also try various strategies to popularize their productions or 'to sale more' and to earn more. 

you find many sachets hanging on walls of shops or on shelves, racks 'smiling @ you'.  

i think we do not live in a fully or totally, 'financially independent or commercially sustainable world. we live in a 'commercially economically 'dependent world. No economies totally liberal or fully prosperous within. And there are no economies or countries i can think of that 'do not depend on credit' or loans'. i believe that every (identified) country of this world 'try obtain loans for various reasons and to pay back loans they try various strategies. 

Buying things 'on credit' is a very old strategy that most households used in the past and is something popularly using even today as a household financial coping strategy'. 

Often i hear that some shop owners say that 'selling things on credit is a hazard for them.  why?  the reason that they point out mostly is that 'our customers do not pay back money on time or they always have a remaining balance from what they last purchase'. we too need to maintain our shops buy what we need for the sustainability of our businesses. 

The sachets, therefore gives a tremendous relief for both parties; the customer and the shop owner'. 

Consumer stuff were not available in sachets in the past. for example when i was a child i can remember buying half or quarter from a whole 'loaf of bread', tiny pieces of juggery  and 100 or 50 grams of sugar but not teeny weeny sachets of sugar or any sachets comes wrap to cater our other daily necessities. 

Now the sachets helps the households to stay away from ' buy on credit strategy or avoid buy on credit but buy on cash paying money at that moment of purchasing what they need or only what they need for day's consumption using the money available in their hands or in wallets.  

The household coping strategies of past differ from the Household Coping strategies that the current world is using. The Credit Card or VISA card is one of the strategies that people have chosen to deal with their commercial needs , when shopping but that is not something the current world is using as a coping strategy but as a strategy to safe guard their money from thefts and other things. But it is something that modern world is using and is a some sort of a strategy that gives less hazards specially when they have to handle ' a lot of money'. The Sachets are not available in big super markets, i assume. the sachets are available in small shops or whole sale outlets and no credit card or VISA card used in such type of purchasing mechanisms.  

The prices of sachets are 'affordable. 

The concepts or economic or entrepreneurial strategy called ' sachets' have become very popular but is that a very good indicator of measurement of 'development of economic situation of a country , specially when people always use or choose 'the sachets strategy when purchasing what they need. why people cannot purchase what they need in bulk or in big numbers? or what they need in 400 grams or 500 grams or in 1 kg packets? 

some buy in big quantities while some buy sachets.  is it something that says or gives a picture of 'unfilled gaps between existing economic 'classes' of a country. what did Karl Marx Said about these things, i cannot review my old notes. 

we can hear no sighs only when every one purchase what they want in required quantities and that too saves time and so that my kind people do not need to run to the shop every day or every time to buy what they want they need.  


Thanks to sachets some manage to safe guard peace and harmony within families, between members of family, i assume. 

wish you all a very prosperous New  Year and no more tears!
