Sanity. Rationality. Ability to differentiate between expensive and freaking ridiculous. Somethings, money can't buy. For everything else, there are a lot of payment options.
Go through this list of ridiculously priced things, and realize that affordability, is just a state of mind.
1. Graphics Card: Rs. 3,84,900
On the bright side, life's a game. So why not spend your life's earning playing games. Right?
2. Part 2 of a Physical Chemistry Book: Rs.7,09,518
I'd like to re-iterate, it's not even a complete book. It's a part 2! It's like a sequel, so it'll probably suck.
And here's a user review for the book.
3. Plastic Vase: Rs.35,975
Please note: Made of plastic. Gold in color.
4. Psychology eBook: Rs.9,89,957
Once again. It's an eBook.
And here's a closer look at the size of the file. Almost 10,000 bucks an MB. I know. :)

That's right. You can connect these to your mobile phone, or your iPod; not your wallet though.
6. Pressure Cooker: Rs.18,500
This is what every child dreams of - to grow up and buy a pressure cooker on EMI.

I just sold my bike for Rs.12,000 you know.
9. Binoculars: Rs. 1,27,001
For short sighted, but really rich people.

Of course. Because hard disks are too big.
11. Tube light: Rs.8,810
What's this, the sun?
12. Pencil Sharpener: Rs.26,402
My personal favourite. Sharp pencils and a sharper pain in the chest.
13. Mattress: Rs.1,20,000
Neend kahan aayegi ye khareedne ke baad?
14. Wedge Pillow: Rs.32,299

My house rent is cheaper.
16. Headphones: Rs.1,00,000
Yeh sunne se pehle mere kaan kyun nahi phat gaye!
17. Ice cream spoon: Rs.8,431
That's why I always pick an extra spoon whenever I go to Baskin Robbins.
