  1. Vk experience
    My mom & aunt went for exchanging old gold jewellery for new. They did it peacefully & returned home. Mom told me its details and i asked her few things but she didnt know regarding it.
    Basically the shopkeeper returned jewellery at cheaper rate than selling price giving excuses for policy etc. That approximately amounted to 9k.
    I spoke to sales girl over phone but in vain.
    Then we went to shopkeeper again in person after requesting vk that everything goes smoothly & we get best price for jewellery.
    And to my utter surprise, 4 people there agreed with me and they immediately returned 10k instead of 9k.
    Just wow experience not just coz of money but the way everything happened.
    Thanks Sir, vk & Almighty!
