Shirdi: In Mumbai's existing market of "Made in China" 3D photographs of Indian Gods/Goddesses, last month Shirdi Sai Baba's 3D Photographs also made an entry. And within a months time itself, these China made photographs of Shirdi Sai Baba's, which are made using 3D technology have captured the major share of Mumbai's Market.
These "Made in China" photographs are selling like hot cakes owing to the fact that apart from being made in China, they are beautifully designed and are very economically priced too. But Mumbai's Local shopkeeper's are not happy with these low priced "Made in China" 3D photographs of Sai Baba entering Mumbai's Market, as, their sales of such locally made Sai Baba's photographs have dropped down drastically.
The 3D photographs of Shirdi Sai Baba which are made in Mumbai locally are sold for Rs. 300/- each but the same sized, "Made in China" photographs are being sold at a mere Rs. 25/- only. As, a result it has become virtually impossible for Mumbai's local manufacturers to compete with these Chinese photographs.
In Mumbai today, the largest number of Shirdi Sai Baba photographs being sold, are those which are "Made in China". Apart from being economically priced these Chinese photographs are readily available in whatever quantity one needs. Therefore, such a situation has been created in the market that it seems to be going under their custody, which the Local Photo Manufacturer's are unable to compete.
Soon "Made in China" 3D photographs of Shirdi Sai Baba's Samadhi and other photos related to Sai Baba will also be introduced in Mumbai's market. And may be by that time all local Mumbai shops might be selling these China made photographs of Shirdi Sai Baba itself.
In Mumbai alone there are around 150 Shop keepers who sell Shirdi Sai Baba photographs. Out of which around a 100 sell them on open streets. Their daily sale is of around Rs 1.15 lakhs, of which 90% comes from "Made in China" Photographs alone !!!
Mr.Nilesh Jape, a very profound civil construction builder and Social service personality; every year purchases Sai Baba's picture on a large scale for his near dear ones and his colleagues. But, this time he was extremely surprised to purchase the same amount of Sai Baba Photographs as he used to earlier but for such a low price, just because they were China-made.
