The 5 Rupee Question!

A million men would grab every chance to become a millionaire. What easier chance than to answer a million dollar question? But then there’s a bunch of chaps, who didn’t even let the 5 rupee question go in vain.

Question: What would you offer me if I had 5 rupees to spare?

Answer: It’s down there!

For my readers who are not from India (and I do hope there are) 5 rupees, in today’s date, would amount to somewhere between nothing and 8 US cents. Yes pretty much something that you’d be overjoyed at having in your wallet. So to not make the rupee feel bad, let’s say 5 rupees now equates to a dollar. And now you have a sizeable amount of currency that you can be happy earning.

I asked this question to my entire WhatsApp list and exactly 76 of them were coincidentally free to delve into finding the ultimate good/service that my 5 rupee/dollar could get me.



And here they go.




And they left me diabetic, in my thoughts of course. So if I do die because of high blood pressure, you have precisely 16 of these sweet-toothed guys to imprison.

They were by far the majority. Hershey’s and Cadbury, all the very best!

And then there came this bunch of guys, whom I don’t even know what to say about.




I’ll sure have a long day at the wishing well. I would wish I never met any of these 7 ridiculous pocket-clinking guys.

And then there were 5 of them who came up with pens. They told me they’d like me to continue writing. But then, I have no doubt they’d stab me. Money is man’s worst enemy.

Surprisingly to me, there were only 2 that offered ‘advice’. But now I’m grateful there were only 2. Their advice was priceless. I kept my 5 rupees with me.

I would receive the following items (just one each), had I made the mistake of actually trading my valuable 5 rupees.

-A rose (yep, that’s right)

-An onion

-A travel ticket

-Glue Stick (to stick the broken parts of my life together)

-A glass of cold water

-5 jokes (LOL)

-and a bunch of other things

The following were a few of the more ‘less common items’ that these chaps came up with

-Beer (yes, for 5 rupees!)

-5/11th of a cigarette (I think the guy needed my 5 rupees desperately)

-A book aptly titled “Get rich!”

-More money (yes, my brother understood my situation pretty well)

Also, it made complete sense for a doctor friend of mine to offer me the following:





But really, can apples actually replace doctors?

But what stole my heart was this!




I wish I had an unlimited stash of 5 rupee notes.

No, you don’t get diabetic with home-made muffins.

One guy offered me something that I just couldn’t bargain with.

He offered me sympathy!
