Shop without a Shopkeeper in India

The Logical Indian Mizoram

October 7th, 2014 / 4:05 PM

Not only for breath taking natural beauty, Mizoram in far North-East has beauty in the character of it’s people too.

Vegetables, fruits and flowers that the shop owners manage to collect from nearby forest are kept for selling with the rate list and a container for the customers to put the money. And guess what? There is no shopkeeper, not even a watchman. People pick up vegetables and drop the money in the container. Prices are mentioned and people get back change by themselves too from the box if they don’t have change with them.

‘Nghah lou dawr’ shop, which means shops without attendants are common along the highway in selling, about 65 kilometers from the capital Aizawl. The shop owners leave their shops open for their customers passing the highway to pick up their requirement.

“We trust them, they have never failed us,” say the shop owners.
“We often buy from such shops. We feel great that Mizoram has such kind of vendors. We believe this should be the real practice” say the buyer.

Though shipowners don’t earn much but they feel happy by the trust customers show them.

We wish if such integrity and honesty was there in every human, we would have happiness all around. Salute to the people of Mizoram for having such great practice in their culture.
