Perpetual Printer

The past few weeks have been the most hectic days of my life. Today was a breather and I got a few moments to look through my backlog of pictures from my old mobile phone. Just thought it would be great to share the following two snapshots, more than a year old now, of what I'd call a perpetual printer. Location: a road transport warehouse/ booking center in Trivandrum, Kerala.

To provoke a few thought muscles:

What could have been the inspiration for setting this up?

a. An accidental giant roll of paper.
b. Cost-saving exercise.
c. Logistical ease of buying a giant roll which could last beyond the time the printer itself depreciated below its junk value.
c. Usability. The operator is perhaps not tech savvy enough to keep loading new paper.
d. All of the above.

Any thoughts?
