Wealthy Indian spends £14,000 on a shirt made of GOLD to impress the ladies Oh, lordy.He says he's not good-looking. I think he's very attractive, myself, but not if he thinks he needs a gold shirt to make him look important.This guy's got self esteem issues! He's setting himself up to get taken by some bimbo.MOI
Oh my heavens, what happened to Mr. T???? GSF
The shirt is bad enough, but those gold necklaces are way beyond too much. Agreed: he definitely has some self esteem issues. If he thinks he has to wave masses of gold around to get a girlfriend, I think a better use of his money would be to buy himself a psychiatrist.I'm only surprised he isn't waving diamonds and rubies around. But someone will take him. And after the wedding, yes, she'll take him to the cleaners.Nancy
Money-lender Datta Phuge 32, from Pimpri-ChinchwadIf Dickens lived in India and wrote this story, he might well have given the character and his town their actual names ;-)Data Huge/Fudge from Pimply/Pimpy-Chinchwad?!
I agree with the others that this guy is actually nice-looking but has serious self-esteem problems.I hope that someone eventually tells him that the woman who will love him back is the woman he gives love to, not a gold shirt.Wendy
I'm only surprised he isn't waving diamonds and rubies around. But someone will take him. And after the wedding, yes, she'll take him to the cleaners.Nancy Gold has a very special status in Indian culture. Diamonds and rubies don't have the same status or religious connections.
You need to know a little bit about the culture before making comments like "this guy has self-esteem issues".http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18560_162-57476216/indias-love-a..."No gold, no wedding," is a saying in India, indicating the importance of gold to Indian culture and tradition.India's love for gold is almost a religion. Beyond being a symbol of wealth and status, gold is part of worship and culture -- a tradition that goes back thousands of years. From birth to death, for men and women, among rich and poor -- acquiring gold is a goal for the people of India. All of which has made India the world's largest consumer of gold and thus a powerhouse in industry. "If India sneezes, the gold industry will catch a cold," says Ajay Mitra of the World Gold Council.
When we said the guy has self-esteem issues we were referring to this statement. 'I know I am not the best looking man in the world but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?' he explainedHe isn't that bad looking. But he feels that the only reason women will look at him is because of the gold shirt.Nancy
He isn't that bad looking. But he feels that the only reason women will look at him is because of the gold shirt.Oh I doubt he feels it's the ONLY reason. By the time you're up to a gold shirt, you've acquired several other attention seeking items I'm sure.xtn
I like the first reply on that website just now....."the only thing that would make this guy look more ridiculous is platinum chaps" LOL
So many things about some former coworkers and classmates now make MUCH more sense.Thank you for posting that.
