bloody globalization

Getting gifts from foreign travel was so easy in pre globalization/liberalization age. One could get any simple item from the store nextdoor and satisfy the demands of their desi relatives and friends. t-shirts, university Jersey, shaving foam, RC car, knife, Casio watch… even car duster would do as long as its bought from alien land.
And then comes in globalization with it’s weird concept of liberalization. So called neighborhood stores stock almost everything you could find in firangland.

Foreign visit now calls for visit to some exotic corner in the city where even Columbus wouldn’t dare to venture. Bloody globalization
