- Man in Tamil Nadu buys bike costing INR260,000 in one-rupee coins.
- Coins offload at shop via wheelbarrows.
- Store takes 10 hours and 10 people to count coins.
A man in Tamil Nadu purchased his dream bike for INR260,000 by paying the whole amount in one-rupee coins, the Times of India reported.
The showroom took a total of 10 hours to count the entire money which V Boopathi brought there in a van.
The coins were offloaded using wheelbarrows.
Boopathi, 29, saved for over three years to collect the required money to buy Bajaj Dominar 400. He saved this money at temples, hotels, and tea stalls.
Reportedly, the showroom manager was initially hesitant to accept the money but then did so to avoid disappointing Boopathi. “I finally accepted, considering Boopathi’s dream of buying a high-end bike,” he said.
A total of 10 people counted the money. Boopathi, along with four of his friends and five staff members from the showroom, took the responsibility. At around 9pm, he got his bike.
The dreamer, who is also a YouTuber, works as a computer operator in a private company.
