Beliefs about Business
The cash received first in the morning is accepted in solemnity. The shop
keeper takes the money as near as possible to his eyes and places
it in the cash-box after a brief prayer. Sleeping in business premises
during working hours is discouraged.
Salesman avoid 'no' to queries. If we ask for salt
which is not available, they will say that something else is in stock.
If house wives run short of some item wanted by a neighbour they will
say 'I have it in plenty'.
In oil stores dealers commence the days business by selling
any article other than oil.
