Why should I buy a weighing scale? Do I really need a weighing scale for my Business?
Well, first let us analyze why the existence of weighing scale came into being and then we can go into the topic if you need a weighing scale or not..
In the per-historic times if you needed some rice you would go in the bazaar and buy a stone worth of rice for say a stone worth of cotton. Then came along money which was a store of value. So now you went to the market and bought one stone worth of rice for 1 gm of gold (or any equivalent currency).
Now there are smart chaps who aren’t so honest after all. So instead of taking a big stone, they started using a small stone. His neighbor got inspired by the small stone and he started using a smaller stone. You get the idea. SO now there was no standardization. Hence traders started getting dishonest. The Government did not like this too much, and as usual they came us with a policy. They said that “This particular stone is 1 kg, and now onward the unit of weight will be 1 kg”. something like this. So now local grocers could not use “ANY STONE” but a stone equivalent to 1 kg or they would be shoved into the local jail.
Fast forward in todays world, you need a weighing scale to make sure that the person who is selling you the scale is honest. If you are honestly giving the seller money for 1 kg of something, he should honestly give you 1 kg of THAT something. So essentially a weighing scale is to make sure people remain honest.
So if you are in the manufacturing business and you purchase a lot of raw materials, you need a weighing scale to make sure that your supplier is giving you the right quantity. If you are in the food business, you need to make sure that your supplier is giving you the right quantity of potatoes, tomatoes, etc.
At times you need to be sure that you are not the dishonest quack. So you need to make sure that you are giving your customers the right amount of goods that they are paying for.
At times when you go to the airport, you need to weigh your baggage so that you can save that extra money that you usually give in at the check-in counter.
At times you need to be honest with yourself and your health. So you need to weigh yourself regularly.
SO everybody needs a weighing scale, and if you don’t have one yet buy it from Hindustan Scale Company – HSCo.
