Probably, you had been in the situation many a times in India. Shops at theatre complexes, motels and restaurants sell food, snacks or drinks at a higher rate than the Govt. Specified MRP (Maximum Retail Price). Actually, the MRP includes all sorts of taxes and nobody is supposed to sell at a higher price than MRP.
I am asking you to read the following mail from one such concerned citizen from India. I have given my advice to the person (May publish if I receive any reply for this post).
Then, comment on this what will YOU do at a similar situation.
"Hi MuruganI am Abhilash.I stay in India.I am a strict anti-bribery guy.I hate to endorse and support corruption,cause that's the MOST dangerous disease eating away the society;according to me.And first and foremost,that shouldn't be the way of life just because that shouldn't be.It's unethical and illegal.One of the things that irritates me a lot is the selling of some goods at a price more than the MRP.This can be experienced a lot at film theatres,eateries at large shopping malls,at pilgrimages and other places where people are vulnerable for exploitation. I sometimes argued with the shopkeeper but I succeeded only a few times.At other times,I just refrained from buying the thing.I hope you are getting my point.Could you give me a suggestion on how to handle this freaky stuff?Also could you provide with information sources that deal with solutions for this problem.ThanksAbhilash"
As you know, Flickr uses an algorithm to choose the best 500 photos every day and post them on Flickr Explore page. This mesmerizing collection is done auto' magic 'ally by an "interestingness algorithm" which rates each photo how good it is. It does by considering lot of factors such as who views, who comments and who favourites a photo. It is not most views, most favourites or most comments. Here's what Flickr says: "There are lots of things that make a photo 'interesting' (or not) in the Flickr. Where the clickthroughs are coming from; who comments on it and when; who marks it as a favorite; its tags and many more things which are constantly changing. Interestingness changes over time, as more and more fantastic photos and stories are added to Flickr." As I tried to crack down this interestingness puzzle, I figured out certain shortcuts by which you can get to the Flickr Explore page. Get this basics straight . Favourites matter m
