What is the maximum you have paid for a Samosa ever? May be a handful of rupees if you have bought at the street, a few dozen rupees at a nice restaurant or a few hundrends at the five star hotel in your city? That's more like the money I have paid up. But how about a ten thousand rupees? Thats what a Dutch couple had to pay when they ate samosas and then found their bill to be in five figures. They were not gullible enough to believe that, but could not put up against the shop-owner who claimed that the samosa was made using rare herbs. They did the best thing that anyone could do in such situations - they paid up, and then filed a complaint in nearby police station.
What happened next was the happy ending - cops had the shopkeeper return the money, less ten rupees for the samosa. And a complaint has been filed against the shopowner.
