Have you purchased a coconut for weight anywhere in India?Am now in the fabulous city of Coimbatore. It is a really very good city. It has charming people, who are simple and down to earth. It is a massive educational hub.
Be that as it may, it does have one or two negative aspects too. The Chief among them is that the public do not question anything at any time. This morning, I had gone walking in the posh locality of Saibaaba colony. This is the equivalent of Her and Nagar Chennai. Superb gated communities and the famous Annapoorna hotel as well.
Yet, I was simply stumped when I purchased a single coconut. The shopkeeper said that he would weigh the coconut and it weighed 500 grams!! I had been to so many parts of India. Except this city, I have never seen a single instance where coconuts are sold on weight basis. Coconut is sold per single unit price. In most cities it will vary between Rs20 and Rs35.
It is another story that I paid only Rs22. Have you seen this elsewhere? What are other items sold for weight?
