ip1As a developing country, there’s a lot about India that people from other countries might find surprising (and, we can only assume, visa versa). But here’s one that is particularly surprising.

Whatever images you may have of the South Asian country, when you think of pharmacies, you would probably expect the type you’re familiar with. If you’re from the United States, it might be of neatly organized bottles, tacky Hallmark cards, and lots of white everything. If you’re from Japan, you might be imagining neatly organized bottles hidden away behind windows, uniformed employees, and way more herbal remedies. Well, here’s one Indian pharmacy that takes your neatly organized bottles and plays Jenga with them.

Well now, how in the world do they find the medicine they’re looking for? Obviously they have a system worked out (Just like our desks! Honest, boss!). But it would probably be fairly entertaining to get a glimpse of one of the pharmacists digging through his stock (Or at least give us some ideas for improving the organization of our messes. “Those socks belong on the floor, honey!”).

At least it’s a job with a view!ip4

At first glance, you may wonder just who would need all those drugs, but when we started to think about it…we’ve never actually been behind a pharmacist’s counter. Maybe ALL pharmacies look like this, but we can’t see it! How do we know that madcap shenanigans aren’t going on back there!?

We better take out medication before our anxiety kicks in.
