Looks more like a planned publicity stunt to me.

Too much money can make people go crazy..

By the way if he can buy a 15L no. what cars must he be using?
They Only have to be exotics na??(hehehe)

I think this is Complete Show-off..If he really wanted to use that money why not do something good (like helping the needy).

This is exactly what he may have wanted = publicity! And he pretty much got it, didnt he? Top front page article on the Times of India, a thread on an automobile forum....people are obviously talking about him.

Then there is another chap on the TOI today who has spent close to a crore on VIP numbers for his 85 SIM cards. Sigh!

Absolutely useless stuff to spend 15L on !! I guess he will keep this number to be used for his circle of friends & family. So, if you or me call, definitely "check the number you have dialled". Otherwise, just think how many calls he will be getting, as the number was published in the front page of times of india.

The first thing that came to my mind after reading this story here and seeing it on tv was what a waste of money. I wish I had 15 lakhs here to put up in my work!

"Punjab man owns 87 cell nos worth Rs 1.5 cr " - This is what i read in todays paper after getting over the fact that some 1 paid 15 Lakhs on a certain number .

I just wish these stupid people put the same amount of money in really really sweet cars .

I think the hutch guys must have played smart and put in a couple of thier own men in the bidding to dent the ego of Mr.Moneybags Nice strategy though. Arun Sarin is out to convince the vodafone shareholders that the India investment was well worth it
