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.  

plural noun: sachets
  1. 1.

    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!
