I am an Indian... and these make me more so...

When the shampoo bottle seems to be over, I pour some water in it, shake it, and use it for another couple of baths.

A toothpaste isn't over until I've entirely flattened it out and started rolling it up from the back.

I buy broccoli and avocados for 300 Rupees, but still ask for some dhaniya patta for free.

I don't just recycle gifts, I recycle the gift-wrapping paper too.

When a bulb gets fused we move it around trying to get the filament to join again

I worry about price of gold without any intention of buying it!

I will beat the crap out of my TV remote to make it work but not change the battery

We get cheesed off if the Gol Gappa guy doesn't give a free sukha puri in the end when I ask for one.

When my T-shirt gets old, I use it as night wear, when it gets older, I play holi in it then I use it as a pochha.

I ask for extra oregano and chili flakes from the Dominos guy, so that I can use them later in my Maggi noodles at home .
