MADURAI: IT has caused clashes at many a wedding in the rural Tamil Nadu and has provided comic relief in countless movies since black-and-white screens.

Not a lot of people from the rural TN can claim that they do not know what Moi is. The age-old custom, still prevalent in most rural areas, has upgraded to the new era through a mobile application developed by a mobile shop owner.

Moi is a monetary gift that one gives a friend or a relative when attending a ceremony at their house.

While gifts may be the giver’s choice, Moi is a question of pride and people remember who gives how much. Giving somebody an amount lesser than what they gave during a function at your house is an act of disrespect and often end in harsh words in the middle of functions.

A mobile shop owner has found a way to prevent such altercations. He has given Moi a life in the virtual world, with a software that records Moi given by people, which even prints receipts.

The 33-year-old owner of C M Communications mobile shop in Tirumangalam, M Prabhu is no stranger to Moi and the trouble it involved. “I have seen people trying to record monetary gifts. A list of visitors, along with the money given to the relative, is saved as a PDF file and can be reviewed any time,” he said.
