Went shopping for fruits yesterday

The post-prandial fruit was out of stock, so wifey suggested I take a walk and buy some fruit. Ah, well, I think, I don't mind a periodic check of prices, since I blogged about stagflation here.

Imagine my shock when an atropied bunch of bananas already black in colour was priced at Rs 20 a dozen, and a water melon at Rs 30!

The vendor, a dour looking fellow with eyes all red from lack of sleep, had a mien that said 'take it or leave it.' I took it. I had no alternative.

So, something like stagflation is already here, and you read it here, right?
