Today, we are habituated with digital payment method with using e-wallets, Net banking or credit cards to pay our bills. Everything is very easy for us to apply and accept, but this can not be acceptable for someone. Recently, I heard a real story about an old man from my uncle. He told a very interesting story about that person. That old man used to collect electricity bills and telephone bills with the bill amount from shopkeepers in the market and paid their bills with small profit of 10 Indian Rupees per bill(startup in those years). he used to go with his bicycle and did this work for so many years. He could earn enough by the end of the month and fulfil his needs.
By the time, the uses of digital world, he came to know that everyone used to pay digitally. He found very few shopkeepers then interested to pay their bills like that. Everyone got the way to pay digitally and had some cashback too..!! But what about that old man, who was working hard to earn and satisfied with those ten rupees.. !?. The thing is that, by having that cashback in our bank account, we would not achieve much for our better life, but giving those ten rupees to pay their bills matters more for him and he can survive his life by it. A one man with old age, surviving by this small work, maintain the trust between each other and suddenly the relationship between them cut down. But, still some shopkeepers likes to give him their bills to pay and maintain that relationship of smile !! By connecting to the internet,we lost our connection to the people like him.Thank you so much.
