India is a unique state. Here, step by step, a new culture and a new language can be seen. In this episode, here we are going to tell about a state in India where shops are running on trust only. There are no shopkeepers in the shops here. IAS Awanish Sharan has tweeted about these shops. Let us know about this state and the shops here.
In the state of Mizoram, located in the northern part of India, there are vegetable and fruit shops on the highway. There is no shopkeeper in these shops. Here a small board with only the price written on one of the poles hangs and there is a box for putting money.
Sailing is a small town 200 km away from the capital of Mizoram, Aizawl. These shops are often discussed on social media. You will be surprised to know that till date these shops have never been stolen.
In Mizoram, this culture is called ‘Nghah-lou-Dawr’. These shops were started during the Corona period. Apart from vegetables, fruits, fish are also sold at these shops built on the side of the highway.
Whoever has to buy the goods, he puts that much money in the bag kept in the shop and then takes the things from there. The reason behind running these shops is said to be that if the shopkeepers start sitting at the shops, then they will not have time for farming.
