    Yes. That's right. Not all of us can afford 7 course meals at the Shanhri La no...some of us have to eat peasant food. The 5% in urbania wouldn't understand hunger. They need to be in the gym everyday to get rid of their obesity (I mean prosperity).

    This is real stupid. The problem is the number of rationally thinking people are more than the foolish people who can be deceived by temporarily cutting a price of things by a few rupees.
