A number of Mega Malls are appearing in and around the city. Besides providing a unique shopping experience to many, they also contribute to the growth and development of a modern city. At the same time, it is a matter of reflection whether these high end shopping complexes end up increasing social and economic disparity in the society. Write an article expressing your views on the same. Your article should not be in more than 150 words.
Shopping Malls – A Unique Experience
A number of mega malls are appearing in and around Delhi. The sprawling complexes boast of replicating the best global norms in terms of design, infrastructure and facilities. They promise to offer a unique shopping experience to people , especially the shopaholics and foodies. Some of the special attractions of these malls are multi-cuisine food courts, cinema halls, multiplexes, retail outlets of branded and designer goods, kids play station, international crafts bazaar etc., with spacious parking lots and more.
Now the pertinent question arises how ethical it is to promote such high-end shopping complexes while the per capita income is very low and a good majority of people are still struggling to make both ends meet. The rat race for fancy goods takes many a youth to the path of crime. The disparity between the haves and have-nots is increasing.
It would perhaps be a better idea to provide an opportunity to people by launching schemes with lucrative incentives for the uplift of the poorer sections. Probably by bridging the gap between different sections of the society one could enjoy the luxuries and the provisions of a modern city with a clear conscience. There should be a greater sense of social responsibility and accountability.
