1 US $ = 1 INR

This is a dream come true for me. Just being able to purchase things on parity this is what it would be like:

1) Lunch and dinner for 8 Rupees? Are you crazy, has poverty and corruption removed from earth?

2) A Local phone call for 25 Ps, impossible even the bankcorrupt spice would not dare such a thing!

3) A bus ticket for entire city trip at 16 Rupees – Hold your breath in a AC Volvo bus with a smiling conductor!!

4) Rental of houses at 600 Rupees per month for a 3 BHK

5) 2 Way air ticket for a person trans-atlantic at 1700 INR? What would happen next to cheap airlines – drop dead literally from air?

6) A Movie of Hollywood or Bollywood fame for 12.50 INR, Popcorn and thumsdown at 6 Rupees – It would be interesting to note the per capita consumption of India!!

7) Ferrari cars at just 65,000 INR after 135% duty for general citizens!! All auto drivers will upgrade to these.

8 ) The common anigioplastry, By-pass at 1.05 Lakhs still – bad, why is it so expensive? Dental visit costs 12,000 Rupees – good olden days were better.

We can just go on in this dream world spending money in USA, with our existing Indian rupees. Me not being an optimist had to catagorize this one as fiction though!

  1. Thanks God! U didnt dream of 1INR = 100$

    Srik: Met a person in Singapore when I lived there in the early 90’s. These people had move to Singapore in the late 1950s. Apparently when they moved there.. 1 INR was 30 Singapore $.

  3. Veena says:

    Good thought/dream!! What about our salary ?
    Also people from other ‘foriegn’ countries would be busy checking the VISA quotas to fly to our ‘des’ πŸ™‚

    Vijay, Now its almost the otherway round.. πŸ™‚ idu ondu jeevana chakra…!

  4. Srik,
    Not a bad idea at all….

    Oops… this is reverse thinking.

    At this rates it would be criminal to make our salaries 2200 RS or something like that – thats a nightmare! Hope the jeevana chakra turns 360 and teaches those guys a lesson in immigration or two. I cant imagine the drunk official/cop asking irralavent question at midnight when flight lands and deports them at some stupid reason.

  5. Err… and what exactly happens to all those boasting mothers who speak, “My son is a phoren-return”?? πŸ™‚

  6. Black King,
    Mothers being mothers…will hide the sad fact until the bahu rani discovers this and we have Ekta kapoor and gang v 2.0 πŸ˜‰

  7. Prashanth M says:

    By that time, US will be another India πŸ˜›

  8. Prashanth,
    No ….then how can 1 US$ be 1 INR?

  9. Prashanth M says:

    I meant, by that time US will have all those which is here in India – poverty, high population density, corruption, power cuts, encroachments, scams et al

  10. Prashanth,
    πŸ™‚ Spreading things equally – Ok!

  11. Prasanna Sastry says:

    Before all that we first need to find a person who can play Bill Clinton and One who can be Monica Lewinsky.

    I think many of the characters from K Serials would surely agree, Rest is in Mohan’s headache how he achieves it.

    Veena avare Set a Stiff deadline.

  12. Prasanna Sastry says:

    before all that we need Bill Clinton and MOnica Lewinsky to start with and rest is
    Mohan’s headache how he achieves equality.

    Veena avare set a stiff deadlines to implement this project.

  13. Sastry sir,
    Clinton/lewinsky is old stuff….we need better options now. That simply wont work!!

  14. some body says:

    i don’t know about the other (larger?) ramifications, but for sure, $1 = inr 1 would be a death knell for outsourcing?

    – s.b.

  15. Prasanna, which project.. to turn the chakra or the k serial one.
    s.b seem to give some better eg., lets check that!

    hey btw, hearing about KPO these days like BPO, whats all this bout? knowledge process outsorcing???

  16. Ahhh…infy…ahh….the quarterly results…..oh well…..

    But Mohan, seriously, fictionally what would (y)our salaries be? That is scary, nay?

  17. Some body,
    Yes – you are 100% right but then looking at positive side, our guys will have better options due to unemployment πŸ˜‰ Atleast the harrasement would stop.

    KPO is knowledge processing outsourcing in my knowledge too.

    December stud,
    No – that would cancel out the parity… 😦 . I would like to have the cake and eat it too…
