Rahul Kumar 0

Mizoram have indigenously developed a novel kind of grassroots commerce that is all about good will and Honesty.

The nghah lou dawr (shops without shopkeepers) are a unique way to buy and sell harvested products. It is a common sight to see these shops along the highway in Seling, about 65 kilometres away from its capital Aizawl.

At these shops, vegetables, fruits, flowers and other products are kept for selling with a rate list and a container into which customers can put the money. People can be seen going through these items nonchalantly and then grabbing whatever they need before putting the money they owe into the containers lying beside the items.
