Let's compared it with other common liquids and do some quick calculations, and you will feel a little better To know why,
see the results below you'll be surprised at how outrageous some other prices are:

Diesel (regular)                                           : Rs.65 per litre

Petrol (speed)                                             : Rs.86 per litre

Coca Cola 330 ml can                                   : Rs.20 = Rs.61 per litre

Dettol antiseptic 100 ml                                  : Rs.20 = Rs.200 per litre

Radiator coolant 500 ml                                  : Rs.160 = Rs.320 per litre

Pantene conditioner 400 ml                                    : Rs.165 = Rs.413 per litre
