Can’t buy, can’t eat

19middle-class6Prices of essential commodities were sky rocketing. Commodities prices are up by 20 percent when compared to the commodities sold two months back. So far vegetables have been dearer in the market but now even the essential commodities prices started frightening the common man today. Public is upset over the hike in prices. The most commonly used in the Indian kitchens daily – the Toor  dal ( kandipappu ) registered an increase from Rs 70 to Rs 100. This way all the dals were emptying the purse of a commoner. Sugar, tamarind, rice, oils prices somehow remained static but others posed an agony to the housewife. Red chilly powder became further stronger. A kg sells at Rs 110. A total bill for two months is now equal to less than a month that too with great difficulty. Even traders are feeling the pinch of soaring price. There is no business notwithstanding the marriage season, merchants said. Not only this, even the whole-sale orders have come down to a large extent, they said. What to do, says the common man.
