I believed him today. You also would if you saw the crowd outside the RMall at Mulund that houses a Big bazaar which is currently having a SALE. Like my mom observed when she visited me recently. "It is a Mela, only it runs everyday". Imagine a mela within a mela. A supermarket that gives discount in virtually everything, having a Sale. You actually have to take a coupon to enter the store. The Pictures below are of the Queue, which have been there whole day. Queue of people waiting for the coupons so that they may enter and buy something, anything.
But of course, there were all kinds of people. Not just from the bottom of the pyramid, there were quite a number of affluent looking people as well. Afterall who don't love a bargain. Only better for Biyani..
BTW, what is the definition of a Queue. I know what a queue is but I am not sure of the exact definition, is a queue still a queue is it runs in two lines.. I am not talking about 2 parallel queues but the same one snaked parrallel from the middle. LOL.
The Queue starts at the main entrance of R-Mall, wait, it is where people from the queue enters the mall, but it starts from there, go all the way to other end, snake back and then come back to enter. Also there is a queue that is ready to join the queue. It is the Pre-Queue at the other side of the mall.
Look further ahead, beyond the car, it is the queue..
The queue is still not even snaked..
This is the other middle-end of the queue at the end of Rmall where the queue turns back for the journey towards the Mecca....
Walmart, will have company. And a market of course. A ready market.
