History, Legacy and more about Debit and Credit Card

I have read almost all of Indian mythology and the Hindu rishis and sadhus have fantasized and imagined about almost everything including the Pushpak Viman “Aeroplane“, telepathy “mobile phones”, and lots of other stuff that was only discovered in this century and age. They couldn’t imagine or predict about modern cars or motorcycles but they have mentioned almost in every granth miraculous chariots and horses that can take you anywhere at a speeds exceeding thousands of miles per hour. One thing that none of the mythologies, no matter which, including Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Ancient Greek Mythology could fantasize about is the modern 21st century credit card or any sort of credit or debit card. Perhaps no homo sapien sapien other than Edward Bellamy ever thought of such a wonderful thing as a credit card until his very popular novel Looking Backward came out. Although his imaginary credit card was more like a debit card, it very much defined almost all the features of a 1940s credit card.
