Tag Archives: forum mall

I was very happy when I came to know that a mall was coming a short distance from house. But when I went there I was sorely disappointed by the noise. They play shrill songs and its so loud that you can’t have a conversation at normal volume. I got a headache the first time I went there. Now, I’m used to it but it still bothers me. I don’t understand the reason behind it.

The trend started with a store called “big bazar” and now “gopalan arch mall” has followed suit. Its a nice air conditioned atmosphere but the noise just puts you off. If you visit other malls like garuda, forum you will see they don’t play music. It feels like a mall, but this feels like a bazar. Nobody would want to be in a noisy bazar.

I did some research on this and came up with surprising results. It turns out that the noise and chaos are not the result of poor planning. They are intentional. It seems that they have recreated the atmosphere of an indian bazaar, indoors. This link explains the head of big bazar saying that noise and chaos increase sales.
I don’t buy that. Big bazar sells because products are cheap, but they are also low quality. And most indians prefer price over quality. Noise and chaos has nothing to do with it. I believe they will sell more if they do away with noise. And their toilets are horrible. Kishore biyani would himself not dare to step in.

There is enough chaos as it is, we don’t need more. If kishore biyani was right, places like garuda, central and forum would have closed long back. The other day I was shocked and disgusted to find a salesman yelling out, trying to sell. It was like the sellers at railway station, shouting with a shrill voice.

If they recreated the noise and chaos, why not recreate the stink, filth and cowdung that accompanies an indian bazaar? Going by their theory, it will bring them more sales. The more chaotic, the better i guess.
