BATTLE OF THE PRICES 1947 vs 2018

While I could draw up a comparison list of 1947 items and their pricing from Independence to present day, I decided to use the cinematic survival guide of Roti, Kapda, Makaan.

But when you think 2018, the definition of essential survival products is very different. Its not the price of grain, clothes or housing that determines our life, Instead its the lifestyle itself! So here’s what you would have paid for the current lifestyle in 1947!

THERE’S NEVER A BETTER WAY OF ESCAPING REAL LIFE THAN A LITTLE SONG N DANCE…

72 years gone, despite over 2000% appreciation on some items, we still make most of the above purchases without batting an eyelid.  What a time to be ALIVE!

I hope to heal the world, one habit at a time. And you? 

I seem to have the ‘how not to waste ‘ DNA from a fairly young age… Using insect infected lentils as works of art is just one of the things I did to save 1kg of lentil being thrown away. 

But the ‘Go Green’ ‘ Save the Planet, ‘Earth Day ‘ slogans don’t need to be one day protest wonders. Here are some really simple things that if imbibed, promise a better tomorrow. 

Remember our children learn from us. Be the change you want to see around you.

Keep a small carton with 10 cloth shopping bags. Every time I take an unplanned stop to buy the juicy plums, glistening apples off the road or last minute dinner ingredients from the mall, I never have to take plastic.

I’m sure you’re a food junkie like me, so instead of throwing away all the plastic boxes post eating, I either use them as pots for plants or add sugar, rice and flour and donate to the homeless I see on the streets.

 Think twice before you pick a straw/ disposable spoon for your coffee, smoothie or shake. If you are still not sure, think of  @LeonardDiCaprio & the straw will fade away.

   An average person using 10 paper cups per day in their lifetime is responsible for the cutting of over 100 trees.  So continue hydrating yourself with Tea, Coffee & Water, but instead try to keep a mug/glass/ sipper on your office desk so the water dispenser wastage is minimised. 

   Install a water saving nozzle to all the taps in your house. Their aerator technique helps waste almost 50% less water, in every use. 

Adapting these changes maybe a small step for man, but will prove to be a giant step for mankind.
