Shopping - the long distance way!Yesterday I used the video conference feature in WhatsApp for the very first time - for shopping, that too, and feeling quite pleased with myself at trying something innovative (innovative for me, that is).
My niece called up from a shop in the market in Amritsar and displayed the fabric bales in the shop for me to select the colour I had wanted. It was good fun, with her moving the phone around, the shopkeeper pulling out bales, me shouting 'not this, that one which was at the top of the pile on the shelf which he pulled out first' or 'not that, the one below the pink' or with great excitement, 'yes, yes, that is the one I want'.....totally hilarious!!
The marvels of technology are really to be, well, marvelled at. It is amazing how one can use technology in a smart manner without being physically present in a place. Have any of you enjoyed such "shopping"?
