    Very well said, Mahesh. Specially agree with the part that consumer wants to buy anytime and expects business to be contactable anytime. To e-enable retailers in low cost yet effective way, we started Half Cookie in Mumbai. We hope to convert local retailer to adopt mobile and e-commerce in a simple way. Also there is one misnomer that if you are a e-commerce site, you need to service entire country. In our view, buy going online, a local retailer can service 30 km radium instead of 5Km radius. Even that is significant.
