Do people wearing branded clothes bargain with the fruit seller for fun only?Recently we visited a temple with guests on the outskirts of the city. There were many mango gardens on both sides of the road and at many places the villagers were selling world famous 'dussehri' mangoes. While returning we too stopped to buy some mangoes. They were quoting the price as Rs. 35 a Kg. , though in the city the same were available at not less than Rs. 60 a Kg. in posh markets.
I distanced myself from the scene and focused on watching the behaviour of the people. Many people halted their swanky cars and people wearing branded clothes alighted to buy the mangoes. They were haggling with the sellers to reduce the price to Rs. 25 a Kg. Finally they were able to get mangoes at Rs. 30 a Kg. On buying 5 Kgs of mangoes, they saved or earned Rs. 25.
Suddenly a though occurred to my mind that the individuals pay several thousands of rupees while buying branded clothes at the mall without any murmur of protest, but while buying mangoes they bargain like professionals.
