Luxury or Necessity?

Friends! Indians! Country men/women! Petrol is no longer Rs.44.26 a litre.Petrol/Diesel prices have been hiked again and the ruling party can be considered for nomination for "Most Frequent Oil Price Hiker Government".Chennai and Mumbai are worst affected among Metros,the increase being Rs.3.23 per litre making it Rs.47.49.If this continues at this rate, "The Inevitable Fuel" which is already consuming a considerable chunk of our salary credit,will claim the lion's share. May be Mr.Mani Shankara Iyer is emphasizing that we should adopt a simpler life style.

    @Adengappa - So, India is trying to make itself at par in the International Arena,eh? But when are we going to understand that there are some other areas which have better scope to prove ourselves..
