What excatly can you do in a million rupees?

That seems to be the question nowadays…

Citibank has launched a new promotion of a lucky draw with a prize of 1 million rupees, if you get yourself a citibank personal loan.

Their promotion goes something like this, “Get a new car, get your house renovated, get a plasma TV AND go on a cruise!”
Can you really do all that in a million?? Or does the word million just conjure up images of granduer?!

A decent car (Coure, Santro, or even Alto) costs around 5 lacs,
House renovation anywhere from 2 to 10 lacs itself,
plasma TV is about 2 lacs
and a cruise with two people is a lac itself.

P.S. A million rupees is 10 lac

    They should have put it like this:

    “Get get your house mortgaged with us, buy a new car, get the same house renovated, get a plasma TV AND go on a cruise! and with all this you get a chance to win a million bucks!”

    Pity! how corporate world lures everyone to run after ‘khwahishaat’

    new car, renovation, plasma tv, cruise all are luxuries, so get ‘qarz’ for ur luxuries and at the same time play the lottery to win ‘1 million’. fools paradise

    Scenario after taking the Chiti Loan

    I just returned from the Dubai cruise dropped wife at her mom’s house to talk as I entered the house phone rings

    I : Hello

    Caller : Hi is this Farhan

    Me : Yes

    Caller : Hi this is Jerkhead calling from Citi
    Loan , how was the cruise

    Me. : Oh it was good not what I expected , the room was a little cramped for my tasste

    JerkHead : oh ok so you like it at home with your Bravia LCD TV

    Me : Oh Yeah there is no place like home

    I hear in the background of Jerkhead , HE’s home get him and the same moment bell rings and phone gets disconnected

    I open the door to find 3 Gundas and a nerdy , pimply looking guy

    Nerdy : Hi I am Mega JErk from Chity Bank

    I : Oh I was just talking to JerkHEad on the line in the house

    MJ : We know , now get the hell out

    I : what are you saying this is my house

    MJ : It was now it and everything in it belongs to Chity Bank

    I : Hell no , how come

    MJ : you forgot your loan payment

    I : Like I did , the first intallment was waived

    MJ : We don;t know who waived it

    I : I said some Gadaha Rep on phone told me

    MJ : Did you got his phone number , fullname , NIC number , date and time of call ,number he is calling from , his bap ka nam , his real bap ka nam , his ma ka nam , his sage and sotele bhai ka nam

    I : UMMM no

    MJ : than you are out

    I : but he was calling from Chity Bank

    MJ : We know he was calling from our bank but as you don;t have any info , you got no say and mind your attitude else i will even get your clothes off against the payment , Jockey ke underwear aur baniyan ka ishtihiar banna waise bhi you look like those stick figures in theie ad

    I : Acha what can I do ,

    MJ : first get th hell out of the house now , write a letter to our What is Customer Service Dept , customers deserve to be gutted for dealing with us Dept and if they didn’t use your applicaition to wipe their ass they will get back to you somday with the reply that this is your fault get a new home , again take our loan and make sure this thing does not happen again

    The Gundass pick me up and throw me in the street

    The pimply Mega Jerk takes out his Vertu Paltinum and say : ” HEy JErk HEad house secure , bring some KurKAre and Pepsi Twist aaj ka match is ke LCD par dekheen ge

    Meanwhile I am out on the street thinking

    Yeah hai meri Kahani
    Kaise Zindgani
    Citibank keh raha hai
    aab kab loan reh raha hai

    Eek promotion purani
    tujhe hai hamne pehnani
    tujhe ghar se beghar karna hai
    tere kismat mai hum se deal karke sarak pay phirna hai

    Jhote sare wawdyun ke sayeen mai hum Zinda Hun
    apni dreams ko loan ke chakar se pura karne ke chakar mai para hun

    aab hai yeh mere kahani
    bas har taraf Werani
    Sarak par chal raha hun
    yunhi loan ke dard seh raha hun
