Russel Peters was right. We are a nation of cheap bastards and we are proud of it. From the ‘Kitna Deti hai’ to squeezing a toothpaste tube till it screams ‘bloody murder’, we tend to be extremely frugal. Indians are not impulsive buyers. We perform an in-depth research analysis taking into account the depreciation rate, current economic state, salvage value and other sh** before buying anything. Anything!
In the pre-ecommerce era – If a person bought a good and later realized that it was available at a lesser rate elsewhere or a chaeper alternative existed , they would curse themselves for not waiting. The e-commerce era is no different. People get pissed if they find a better or cheaper alternative elsewhere – the typical buyer’s remorse.
