A day at Lajpat Nagar with 100 bucks: Liv’ED It

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”

Here at Economy Decoded, we think out of the box. Then why shan’t our experiment be something out of the box? Have you thought of spending a day at Lajpat Nagar with just 100 bucks? No, I’m sure you haven’t.

Now if I ask you to give it a shot, some of the judgmental minds will call it a stupid idea and say it’s impossible.

I say think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

Now, when you start your day at Lajpat Nagar with just 100 bucks, you shouldn’t ever dare to go to any of the outlets. Central Market is the best place to spend your time.


As it is scorching hot these days, in order to beat the heat and energize yourself, you can buy a chuski

…you can even go for a kulfi.

Any of these will cost you 20 bucks and believe me, they will be worth it.

Mind you, the thought of buying clothes with such meager amount will be futile. But you can surely buy some accessories.

Remember, no matter what price the vendor says, you have to stick to 30 bucks. You must have a good hold on the ‘art of bargaining’.


…if you are too lazy to bargain or if you are a gentleman who obviously won’t ever accessorize himself with earrings and bangles, you can devour a plate of any of these delicacies.

Any of these should cost you 30 bucks. If they cost more, just switch the place.

Now with just 50 bucks left with you, you can either get yourself a Henna tattoo…

…you can gorge a plate of Chhole Bhature…

…because there is no sincerer love than the love of food.

So these are a few ways through which you can make a so called impossible day a bit more feasible. You can even explore more and find better ideas. Keep thinking, fellas!
