Inflation has driven up the prices of almost everything. However, the kind of inflation that has hit me the hardest is - Relocational Inflation - it is a misnomer because it barely has anything to do with what inflation technically is.
I had moved to Goa for a period of four years. Out of which, one has been spent. It has changed the way I live...
Incase you didn't figure it out yet - I'm talking about alcohol.
Alcohol has a very high calorific value, or so we were told. I never really gave a shit (because alcohol based fuels didn't have any effect on my life), until I moved back to Delhi for my vacation.
A bottle of beer costs 40 odd bucks in Goa. It costs 90 bucks here! Alcohol indeed has a high calorific value - it burns a huge fucking hole in my pocket. A relocational inflation of 125%.
Maybe goa's tourism department should adopt a new punchline - 'Shield yourself from relocational inflation - Go Goa!'
