Year-Round Mango Delight: Bihar Farmer Grows Mangoes in Every Season

A video showcasing the prices of essential Indian grocery items in London has gained widespread attention on Instagram. In the video, Chavi Agarwal, originally from Delhi, provided her Instagram followers with a tour of an Indian grocery store located in the British capital.

Agarwal, residing in London, shared the prices of popular Indian products such as Lay’s Magic Masala and Little Heart biscuits available in London. She often juxtaposed these retail prices with the corresponding costs of the same items in India.

For instance, Agarwal noted that a packet of Lay’s Magic Masala, priced at ₹20 in India, is sold for ₹95 in London. Similarly, a large pack of Maggi is also marked up in London, priced at ₹300 in the grocery store.

Agarwal, aged 27, mentioned that paneer costs ₹700 in London, prompting her to change her cooking plans from matar paneer to chicken in the video clip.

The most significant price differences were observed in the fresh produce section. Agarwal found Alphonso mangoes priced at ₹2,400 for six, while bhindi (okra), a common ingredient in Indian kitchens, was priced at ₹650 per kg in London. Additionally, karela (bitter gourd) was seen being sold for ₹1,000 per kg.

“One commenter humorously remarked, ‘London plans are off,’ while another jokingly suggested, ‘We should start a karela business in London.’ A third individual expressed, ‘The English are still plundering us,’ in the comments section.”

“One Instagram user remarked, ‘I’d never be able to bring myself to buy those after seeing the price.’ However, several others noted that Agarwal had overlooked purchasing power parity while filming the video. ‘You earn in pounds and spend in pounds. Don’t say it’s expensive,’ commented one person.”
