Let me tell you something. We marwaris have a reputation of being misers. I brace the truth with humility that we are calculative and quick to find out opportunity cost in any situation (actually I often point out that most of us are rather spendthrift). That won’t be a miser exactly. However, one alone can’t change what the world believes.
There are many who are inspired by habits of our linage. Only if they could calculate the opportunity cost as fast as we could (I hope I am not hurting anyone’s emotions) then life would be a lot easier.
