    The days of negotiating the price for everything are over, at least in big cities like India.

    Even in the old days, I or any of the men in my extended family could never bargain, we left it to the women. I would decide what I wanted to buy and then walk away. My mom and later my wife would negotiate the final price and purchase the item.

    Great blog.
