The online gift : A small animated video

(Scroll to the bottom of this post for the video) The best way for one to relax after a busy day is to move on to the streets and enter any store that catches the eye, be it the grocery store, the electronics store or the mega showroom of clothes boasting of inventory from the north, south, east and west. The little fingers move across the display, the nasal receptors sense the freshness of the goods and the ears enjoy the bargains in the background. After an evening stroll in the limited space of a few square metres, either the hands move into the purse or the feet move to the exit door, hoping for the availability of better goods the next time. But gone are the days. Online shopping sites have replaced the physicals shops. The senses of sight, smell and touch have narrowed down to the sole sense of vision. Online cash replaced the good old notes. Online hunt for coupons replaced the never ending bargains. And the circular motion in the comfortable chair replaced the healthy evening stroll.

Online shopping comes with both advantages and disadvantages. There is a wider choice to choose from. There are no sales girls staring at us for window shopping for hours together. Goods get delivered at our doorsteps making customer the king. And we are left with a lot of time for miscellaneous tasks. But that’s not all. We can’t be assured that we like the product we have ordered for unless we touch, feel and see it after it is delivered. Goods are not delivered in hours unless they are pizzas or burgers. Orders are not always easily traceable and lastly, there is a risk of payment. But even then, it comes handy at times unexpected and saves us from complicated situations. Watch this short, animated video of online shopping prepared by me for this contest.

Yes, the online shopping spree is taking on: some even offer cash on delivery, so that reduces the risk of payment somewhat.
