Good to see new service sector businesses boom like never before..Almost two and a half decades ago, the name "beauty parlors" was given to small establishments and the pace of development of the business was rather slow in the beginning. Not any more. Today, even the slightly bigger villages in Tamil Nadu and AP have herbal beauty parlors. This business has now come of age since the young have taken to grooming in a very serious way. In the metro cities, it is a big business and bridal make-up is a very costly affair. For a three hour work, the charges are anywhere between Rs.10,000 to Rs.15,000/-. And now comes event management as well. Some costly weddings are entrusted to event managers who manage everything except the food and the finer part of the rituals. The stage is decorated beautifully as well.
And we also have several other service sector businesses growing rapidly. Housewives who can prepare a little more are grouped under someone who manages an app. The housewife gets to earn Rs.15,000 per month. A variety of options have opened up for conducted tours at discount prices. The laundry business is not far behind. They collect the clothes from our doorstep and get it superbly delivered. One does not have to spend time on this.
Of course, the IT professionals are those who keep these businesses going, at least to the tune of 75%. However, IT is bound to keep growing and the post-COVID situation is likely to only see a big boom. We are in for exiting times.
