I regularly buy sachets of instant coffee at Rs.5.00 satchet and the size is so small that the above information can not be accomodated.Can we blame the trader? There are some medicines which comes in a strip of 10 or 15.If I buy 2 tablets the pharmacist cut the strip and gives me 2. Then if I insist to see the strip and start taking down all the above details (which normally in English), the shop keeper will kick my posterior and send me from Banashankari to Malleswaram. There is no limitation of stupidity as some people have no work other than posting illogical and down right stupid subjects.You are right Mr.Sarkar. more  
Always, keep a magnifying glass in your pocket. more  
Those who like to remain intentionally blind - no microscope or telescope can help them, hence a pocket magnifying glass has no scope.
those who like to remain intentionally deaf - no hearing aid can aid to their listening.
Let's be in a lighter vein - get switched to a cultural/musical mode - selection of this moment is the Gazal: ' jo log jaan bujhke naadaan ban gaye, meraa kheyal hai ki oh insaan ban gaye...'
(Those who had intentionally become a duffer, in my assessment they are the true human being....') more  
Many a times this information is written to follow the rule, more in letter than in spirit. more  
We have seen that at many a places instructions written are so small that a Senior Citizen even with spects can not read it.Govt should make it mandatory that even Senior Citizens with spects should be able to read it. more  
Yes. Mr.Sarkar, I am insane. Rs.2.00 Continental instant coffee sachet is 65mmX55 mm (Bru is still smaller) and the author of the post wanted so many details to make the MRP to double. Whatever details are needed are already given.I must be insane to give you a response. Will send you a picture and please suggest will font 24 satisfy Ms.Sarita? more  
She had clearly written for font 10.
65 mm x 55 mm is too large a space to accommodate the desired information. more
