The lines of this yesteryear song by Bobby Mc Ferrin rang in my ears when I was reading this beautifully written article by Rajiv Vij.

The customer expired. Period

By Surya

In the relationship between the seller and buyer, when does the relationship end..or does it? Businesses these days work with the rule – our relationship is with his money and not with him.

Most companies today work on the premise, once the payment is made by the customer, we have got nothing to do with him. The days where the customer is king, is sovereign is something bizarre and unheard of in present day business. Phrases like KYC (Know Your Customer) are nice to hear!
