I always knew that ebay.in is an effed-up place rife with wannabe fortune-makers selling everything from three-year old mobile phones at market price ( yes, CURRENT market price. Go figure.) , Asterix comics at market price plus inflated courier fees, and CDs of comics for 200 Rs and more. But this takes the cake. There are sellers selling posters of Humko Deewana Karr Gaye for 700 Rs ( 800 Rs buy-it-now price) and a courier charge of 120 Rs. Just to give you an idea of what eff-headedness is going on, here’s what the description reads: “PREMIUM QUALITY FIRST PRINT ORIGINALS MEASURING 28″ X 38″ APP ON GLOSSY PAPER, IN MINT CONDITION. ” Keep your eye on the MINT CONDITION phrase, and then read the next line: “THERE ARE 2 HORIZONTAL BUNDLE FOLD MARKS ON THE POSTERS.” Nice.
That’s not all! You get (OMG GASP SQUEE) “RARE ABHISHEK SHAHRUKH MOVIE MAGAZINE: :DECEMBER 2005”, erm, a copy of the rather-imaginatiively titled movie magazine “Movie” dated December 2005 for 300 Rs only. It has the following:
