a runner-up, forced to pay more

Articles like these summon thoughts of Susan Sontag's comparison of western culture to an all consuming virulent cancer. In Whims neck of the woods shops located in depressed neighborhoods
sell their consumables for far more than in an upscale neighborhoods. So this unusual mercantile system often appears
not only in India but the west as well.
