I am an Avid reader and like to read books on various subjects, like philosophy fiction and science fiction. Whenever I travel, I like to carry a book with me and many times it becomes difficult as some books are heavy and thick.
Last September when I was shopping, I came across Kindle Paperwhite, a gadget by Amazon. It comes preloaded with some books and some others one can buy as e-books at a comparatively cheaper cost. I bought it immediately without second thoughts as it suited my requirement perfectly. When I reached home I realised that I had purchased one without a backlight. It needed artificial light to be read easily.

Ques: – Do you think it is necessary to follow the fashion and use the latest products?

Ques: – Do you believe that some products are over publicized?
Ans: – Yes, it is the an era of advertisement and publicity. Anything that is not advertised, slowly fades away from memory, like they say… out of sight out of mind.

Ans: – There is a whole lot of research and creativity that is behind making an advertisement. If a product is for the children then the advertisements are made in such a manner that a child pesters his parents on buying that particular brand. Hence the target is achieved. in case of women’s beauty products the most impeccably beautiful women are projected and women fall in for that particular product, and again the goal is met. So an advertisement is the most useful method of boosting the sale of any product.
Ques: – Which do you think is better buying things online on buying things in real shops?
Ans: – Both the methods offer their own advantages and disadvantages. When we buy something online it saves time. It also saves fuel moreover it is also economically beneficial as well as it is an eco-friendly method. There are also so many discount offers when we purchase online because the online stores don’t have too many employees and they don’t need a shop or a showroom. On the other hand certain things like shoes, need to be bought after trying them properly.
