A man from Karimganj district has fulfilled his dream of having a bike and also made headlines by paying the money in coins. Suranjan Roy, a small businessman, collected Rs 50,000 in coins just to buy his favourite bike.
On Saturday evening, Roy went to a bike showroom and expressed his desire to buy his dream bike to the showroom employees. The employees got shocked when Roy told them that he has Rs 50,000 in coins and he want to buy the bike in finance by depositing the amount as a down payment
The employees took a special permission from the owner of the showroom to deliver the bike to Roy.
The video of Roy waiting for the showroom staff to complete counting his payment has gone viral on social media platforms. In the video clip, the showroom staff can be seen counting the Rs 50,000 in Rs 10 coins.
"He came to our showroom on Saturday evening. As per his wish, we showed him the Apache 160 4V bike. After seeing the bike, the man told us that, he had Rs 50,000 in coins and he wanted to buy the bike on finance by depositing the amount as a downpayment," Barnali Paul, staff of the showroom said.
According to Roy, he had been saving the coins for the past few years for the sole purpose of bringing home the bike.
Interestingly, Suranjan Roy is not the first person to who bought his two-wheeler of choice using saved-up coins. Earlier in March, V Boopathi (29) from Tamil Nadu also paid Rs 2.6 lakh in coins for a bike. The showroom staff took 10 hours to count his payment in coins.
