Q: what if you have already bought something cheap? A: then you would have problems later on. Or your wife would make you return them telling you ‘what is that thing and why have you brought it?’ Q: So arguments take place at home? (Arguments/discussions) A: Of course, definitely. you learn from your experiences. Q: Do you sit and discuss with family member or friends in social gatherings about the things you’ve purchased from here? A: Yes we tell them, share our experiences Q: Your family members do the same? A: Yes Q: Do you feel any embarrassment in stating the fact that you have purchased the product from Sunday bazaar? A: no, like I said there is no such thing as ‘cheap’ in this world. Everything has its own price and qualities make a difference. Q: do you think the developmental phase that Sunday bazaar has gone through, has it brought any changes to the prices or the attitude of the retailers ? A: not that much of a change except for fruits and vegetables Q: Do you think that the retailer is now smarter? (After the development) A: Of course, they are the smartest people. They are at the bottom of the supply chain (at Sunday bazaar) and are the main/integral part of the bazaar and know very well how to exploit the customer or the manufacturer. Q: Sir Do you visit any other markets except Sunday bazaar? A: yes we go to markets like tariq road. Q: any open air markets? A: No. no other open air market. Q: Do you see a price difference between here and tariq road? A: Tariq road is exclusively garments and fabrics therefore there is a difference Q: But garments and fabrics are available at Sunday bazaar too? A: yes people believe that prices here are generally lower than tariq road Q: even though this is a prime location in the defence area? A: Well the reason is that here there are less overheads. People bring their family businesses here. Those people who a running businesses here or are managing them for someone else have less costs to bear (less overheads). There (tariq road) even the shops are for millions of rupees. Q: Don’t you think because defence is a prime location the prices should be higher here? A: No. Because there are all kinds of customers here and there is a lot of customer foot fall. 124

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
