The new iPhone 12 series will soon be released in India & it will priced at Rs. 70K and above. With memes like “selling your kidney to buy an iPhone 12” are doing the rounds on internet since the Apple iPhone 12 launch event, Gujaratis would rather have an altogether different approach towards it. Here are some of the useful things that a Gujarati will surely think of buying/doing instead of buying the iPhone with the same amount of money.
Following are the 10 Things A Gujarati Would Do Instead Of Buying An iPhone 12:
1) Buy bigger, better and cheaper Android phones.
Talking technically Android phones are much better alternatives at very reasonable prices. Why buy one phone when you can buy 3 and make the family happy(and save money!)
2) Share Bajaar !
A whopping 70K is just enough amount for a Gujarati to day trade and earn double the amount by the end. Nobody beats us in the share game!
3) Buy gold !
Gold is one of the dearest investment avenue for any Gujarati and it is legit as well. An appreciating asset v/s a depreciating one with minimal resale value. Do the math ladies and gentlemen!
4) Vyaaj par muki devana
Sounds old school but this thought will surely cross a Gujarati’s head when he/she hears the price of the new iPhone 12.
5) Save it now so it will save you later !
Thinking a million times before spending our hard earned money is our thing. The value earned from an iPhone is not satisfying to our “Vaaniya buddhi” Better save it lad!
6) Several trips to Goa
Goa might be over rated but it is surely on every Indian’s list. 70k is just enough money to stay lavishly with the best drinks around. Yes, dry state peeps!
7) Invest in an idea !
Business is a dear darling to Gujjus. 70k Might not be enough to start off on a great idea but surely can be saved for one!
8) Visit the distant kaka, maama and maasi !
Get your tickets done and enjoy staying with them for weeks. Vehvaar sachvai jaye! Something that phone wouldn’t guarantee.
9) Take the dream vacation !
One phone or several memories? Says it all!
10) Luxury meals for a week!
Our taste buds need satisfaction more than the desire to show off. Checking into a luxury hotel is a fool proof tool to invite envy than the phone!
