Sometimes it's baffling to see how in the name of 'exotic' products, companies sell the most random things at exorbitant prices.

From Balenciaga selling ridiculously expensive garbage bags, to Gucci launching a decorative umbrella that is worth lakhs, there's now a desi charpai that costs over a lakh!

What's even more absurd? Not just one charpai, but multiple products being sold at a similar price. Whoever thought that a simple old charpai could cost so much?

While one may wonder that why are companies selling such ridiculously priced products, the answer, unfortunately, is that there are people who are actually buying them and leaving good reviews!
