Half the money being paid by the Indian public in the helo deal is merely moving from one pocket to another. Following is not directed at anybody in particular. It is just a general observation which in some ways has a bearing on the above discussion on prices. Every once in a while I get into a quarrel with people around me, esp. the kind who enjoy globe trotting. These idiots are happy paying top dollars for frog pickles merely because they are sold by the French but have a lot of difficulty paying Rs. 10 for a bhutta. In Indian bazars they will keep haggling over it all day long. Dus ka bhutta kyun panch ka kyun nahi. Sirf wahan tak jane ka bees rupay, mein to dus hi dungi. Wow! Apple hai pachas hazar to banta hai. Chinese mobile gives the same thing for pandrah hazar and had the damned thing been allowed not to be Faked in India then it would have been made for a mere panch hazaar. Still Wow! This kind of attitude is what keeps India poor and the foreigners rich. In any fair fight saalon ki baja dete achi tarah had this lousy Faking In India not intervened.
